    Origin of a conspicuous longitudinal geomagnetic anomaly on the fore-arc of northeast Japan, Kitakami magnetic belt (KMB), is investigated on the basis of fission-track dating, rock magnetic experiments, reflection seismic interpretation and potential field modeling. Radiometric ages suggest that the basement core samples obtained from the Numanohata SK-2D (southern Hokkaido) and Ministry of International Trade and Industry Kesennuma-Oki (Offshore Honshu) boreholes are part of the voluminous Cretaceous plutons in northeast Japan. Two-dimensional gravity models on fore-arc seismic profiles show that acoustic basement with geomagnetic anomaly has densities comparable with those of cored granites. Magnetic carrier of the granite is identified as multi-domain sized titanomagnetite. Strong thermoremanent magnetization (TRM) and high Qn ratios of the samples indicate significant contribution of TRM of the granitic basement as a source of observed anomaly. Conspicuous paired anomaly is caused by consistent normal remanence of the granitic basement acquired during the Cretaceous long normal chron (C34n). As a result of geomagnetic modeling, optimized direction of the remanence is characterized by westerly deflection and abnormally shallow inclination (<30°), which requires to restore the Kitakami massif (northern part of northeast Japan) to the south of southwest Japan. Significant northward translation since the Cretaceous may have been compensated by left-lateral motions on transcurrent faults along the Eurasian margin such as the Offshore Trend A identified in this study. Gravity modeling indicates that the basement off the Abukuma massif (southern part of northeast Japan), which does not show geomagnetic anomaly, consists of varied density blocks that are bounded by transcurrent faults.

    The Shenhu Massif lies between the Zhu III Depression to the northwest, the Kaiping/Baiyun depressions to the northeast, and the Xisha Basin to the south. Major faulting began in the Paleocene, and initial basins formed on and around the Shenhu Massif during this time. Continental coarse clastics, derived from the massif area, filled the basins prior to the middle Oligocene though larger, deeper basins may have contained lacustrine environments. During the marine incursion from the middle Oligocene and until the early Miocene, coarse clastics were deposited adjacent to exposed basement areas, fine marine clastics were deposited on the massif, carbonate buildups formed along the massif rim, and carbonate platforms developed from the massif edge back into the shallow-water high-massif interior. In mid-lower Miocene, the carbonate areas were reduced in size and replaced by shales. Carbonate deposition as layers and mounds was reestablished over much of the Shenhu Massif in the early and middle Miocene. Prodelta shales in the east Shenhu Massif area and coarser clastics present in clinoforms in the Baiyun Depression are the distal components of a southerly prograding delta system located to the north. Carbonates continued to develop along the southeast side of the west Shenhu Massif during the latter part of the middle Miocene, but fine clastics dominated the rest of the area except in the Kaiping/Baiyun Depression where coarser clastics from the delta were deposited. Amoco and its partners, Nanhai West Oil Co. and Kerr-McGee Co., have begun evaluation of the Shenhu Massif area with the drilling of a Miocene carbonate buildup, the Amoco 23-1 Baodao prospect.

    Marine magnetic and gravity data from the northeast Japan forearc offer insight to the subsurface structure, density and magnetization from which geologic interpretations and tectonic reconstructions can be made. Positive marine magnetic anomalies, on-land geology, drill hole data, and 2-1/2-dimensional models reveal that Kitakami plutons and possibly their associated volcanic rocks constitute part of the modern forearc basement and lie 100-150 km further east than previously thought. A method to create magnetization and density contrast maps was employed to produce a three-dimensional picture of the forearc basement rock properties averaged over a 14-km thickness. -Author

    This is neither an impact crater nor a volcano. It is a perfect circular intrusion, about 10 km in diameter with a topographic ridge up to 600 m high. The Kondyor Massif is located in Eastern Siberia, Russia, north of the city of Khabarovsk. It is a rare form of igneous intrusion called alkaline-ultrabasic massif and it is full of rare minerals. The river flowing out of it forms placer mineral deposits. Last year 4 tons of platinum were mined there. A remarkable and very unusual mineralogical feature of the deposit is the presence of coarse crystals of Pt-Fe alloy, coated with gold. This 3-D perspective view was created by draping a simulated natural color ASTER composite over an ASTER-derived digital elevation model.

    The image was acquired on June 10, 2006, and is located at 57.6 degrees north latitude, 134.6 degrees east longitude.

    Three episodes of Cenozoic tidal shelly sands ('faluns'), dated to the Middle Eocene, Middle Miocene, and Plio-Pleistocene, were deposited by transgressions over the Northeast of the Armorican Massif (Cotentin, Normandy, France) during highstand eustatic sea levels. These shelly calcareous sands and gravels were deposited behind Palaeozoic rocky shoals that separate the Cotentin Basin from the Atlantic Ocean. The morphology of the Cotentin Basin persisted through the Palaeogene and Neogene times with smooth slopes, despite the Cenozoic eustatic sea-level fluctuations and uplifts that affected the Armorican Massif and its borders.

  6. The tectonics of anorthosite massifs

    Seyfert, C. K.

    1981-01-01

    Anorthosite massifs developed approximately 1.4 to 1.5 billion years ago along an arch which developed parallel to a zone of continental separation as a block which included North America, Europe, and probably Asia separated from a block which included parts of South America, Africa, India, and Australia. Anorthosite massifs also developed at the same time along a belt which runs through the continents which comprise Gondwanaland (South America), Africa, India, Australia, and Antarctica. This was a zone of continental separation which subsequently became a zone of continental collision about 1.2 billion years ago. The northern anorthosite belt also parallels an orogenic belt which was active between 1.8 and 1.7 billion years ago. Heat generated during this mountain building period helped in the formation of the anorthosites.

  8. Structural geology and sedimentology of the Sermat Quartzites, Strandja Massif, NW Turkey

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Yaz?c?, Müge; Natal'in, Boris A.

    2015-04-01

    The Strandja Massif, NW Turkey, is the eastern continuation of the Rhodope Massif in Bulgaria. The massif is generally correlated with the Hercynian orogenic belt that was later modified by the Cimmerian orogeny. The basement of the massif is composed by various kinds of gneisses and schists, which are intruded by the metagranites. In the studied area, the Cambrian K-feldspar metagranites are unconformably overlain by metaclastics, where both units have fault contacts with volcano-sedimentary rocks. The metagranite intrusions yield Carboniferous U-Pb zircon ages (Natal'in et al., 2012a). All of them constitute the basement of the Strandja Massif. Cambrian age of metagranites and their subduction related nature as well as the subduction related nature of the Carboniferous igneous rocks suggest a prolong evolution of the Strandja Massif (Natal'in et al., 2012a). The Cambrian metagranites are unconformably overlain by a metasedimetary cover unit, which is known in the literature as the ?ermat Quartzite of presumably Permo-Triassic age (Ça?layan and Yurtsever, 1998). In the studied region, detrital zircons extracted from quartzites show that their depositional age is not younger than the Ordovician (Natal'in et al., 2012a). The basement of the Strandja Massif is subjected to the epidote-amphibolite-greenschist facies of metamorphism and high strain deformation in the late Jurassic - early Cretaceous times. The ?ermat Quartzite forms a transgressive sequence, which starts with metaconglomerates, metasandstones and grades up to quartz-sericite schists. The thickness of bedding changes from thin to medium with parallel bedding planes, containing lens-shaped bodies of massive quartzites. The late Jurassic - early Cretaceous foliation (S1) is generally parallel to the primary bedding plane. Foliations and lineations consistently dip to the northeast and kinematic indicators suggest a tectonic transport in the same direction. High strain in the ?ermat Quartzite prevented the preservation of sedimentary structures such as flute casts and cross-beddings, which can be used to determine the sedimentary environments of the ?ermat Basin. Nevertheless, all available relicts indicate the transportation of sediments from a source area in the south. If the ?ermat Quartzites is Ordovician age, they can be correlated with the Ordovician rocks of the Istanbul Zone, which is interpreted as a south-facing passive continental margin. Sedimentological framework of the ?ermat Quartzites contradicts this correlation. Further studies of the region are necessary in order to determine the connection between the Strandja Massif and the Istanbul Zone.

    Anorthosites, mangerites and charnockites from metamorphosed anorthosite massifs (the Adirondacks and elsewhere) commonly contain coarsely exsolved pyroxenes with substantial amounts of exsolved orthopyroxene (in clinopyroxene) and clinopyroxene (in orthopyroxene). Electron microprobe reintegration of such pyroxenes yields compositions which indicate that pigeonite and subcalcic augite coexisted before metamorphic reequilibration.

  11. Apatite fission-track dating and low-temperature history of the Bavarian Forest (southern Bohemian Massif)

    Apatite fission-track (AFT) dating applied to uplifted Variscan basement blocks of the Bavarian Forest is employed to unravel the low-temperature history of this segment of the Bohemian Massif. Twenty samples were dated and confined track lengths of four samples were measured. Most samples define Cretaceous APT ages between 110 and 82 Ma (Albian to Campanian) and three samples give older ~148-140 Ma (Jurassic-Cretaceous boundary) ages. No discernible regional age variations exist between the areas north-east and south-west of the Pfahl shear zone, but >500 m post-Jurassic and post-Cretaceous vertical offsets along this and other faults can be inferred from elevation profile analyses. The AFT ages clearly postdate the Variscan exhumation history of the Bavarian Forest. Thermal modeling reveals that the ages are best explained by a slight reheating of the basement rocks to temperatures within the apatite partial annealing zone during the middle and late Jurassic and/or by late Cretaceous marine transgression causing burial heating, which affected marginal low-lying areas of the Bohemian Massif and the Bavarian Forest. Late Jurassic period was followed by enhanced cooling through the 120-60 °C temperature interval during the subsequent exhumation phase for which denudation rates of ~100 m myr-1 were calculated. On a regional scale, Jurassic-Cretaceous AFT ages are ubiquitous in marginal structural blocks of the Bohemian Massif and seem to reflect the exhumation of these zones more distinctly compared to central parts.

    The Northeast Regional Biomass Program has been in operation for a period of nine years. During this time, state managed programs and technical programs have been conducted covering a wide range of activities primarily aim at the use and applications of wood as a fuel. These activities include: assessments of available biomass resources; surveys to determine what industries, businesses, institutions, and utility companies use wood and wood waste for fuel; and workshops, seminars, and demonstrations to provide technical assistance. In the Northeast, an estimated 6.2 million tons of wood are used in the commercial and industrial sector, where 12.5 million cords are used for residential heating annually. Of this useage, 1504.7 mw of power has been generated from biomass. The use of wood energy products has had substantial employment and income benefits in the region. Although wood and woodwaste have received primary emphasis in the regional program, the use of municipal solid waste has received increased emphasis as an energy source. The energy contribution of biomass will increase as potentia users become more familiar with existing feedstocks, technologies, and applications. The Northeast Regional Biomass Program is designed to support region-specific to overcome near-term barriers to biomass energy use.

  2. Geological and geochemical reconnaissance in the central Santander Massif, Departments of Santander and Norte de Santander, Colombia

    1976-01-01

    The central Santander Massif is composed of Precambrian Bucaramanga Gneiss and pre-Devonian Silgara Formation intruded by Mesozoic quartz diorite, quartz monzonite, and alaskite and Cretaceous or younger porphyry. Triassic (Bocas Formation), Jurassic (Jordan and Giron Formations).and Cretaceous (Tambor, Rosa Blanca, Paja, Tablazo, Simiti, La Luna, and Umir Formations) sedimentary rocks overlie the metamorphic rocks and are younger than most of the intrusions. A geological and geochemical reconnaissance of part of the central Santander Massif included the Vetas and California gold districts. At Vetas the gold is generally in brecciated aphanitic quartz and phyllonite. Dark-gray material in the ore may be graphite. The ore veins follow steep west-northwest- and north-northeast-striking fracture zones. No new gold deposits were found. Additional geochemical studies should concentrate on western Loma Pozo del Rey and on improvement of the gold extraction process. At California the gold is in pyritiferous quartz veins and quartz breccia. Ore containing black sooty material (graphite?) is highly radioactive. Some of the mineralization is post-Lower Cretaceous. Soil samples indicate that gold deposits lie under the thick blanket of soil on the ridges above the zone of mining. Three principal gold targets are outlined by gold and associated minerals in pan concentrates. The close relation of gold and copper anomalies suggests that copper may be useful as a pathfinder for gold elsewhere in the region. Based on occurrences of gold or high concentrations of pyrite or chalcopyrite in pan concentrates and on analytical data, eight potential gold targets are outlined in the central massif. Reconnaissance of the surrounding region is warranted.

  3. Re-Os geochemistry and geochronology of the Ransko gabbro-peridotite massif, Bohemian Massif

    2013-10-01

    The Ransko gabbro-peridotite massif in Eastern Bohemia is a strongly differentiated intrusive complex, which hosts low-grade Ni-Cu ores mainly developed close to the contact of olivine-rich rocks with gabbros, in troctolites, and to a much lesser extent in both pyroxene and olivine gabbros and plagioclase-rich peridotites. Gabbro, troctolite, peridotite and Ni-Cu ores from the Jezírka Ni-Cu (PGE) deposit, considered to be a typical example of the liquid segregation style of mineralization, were analyzed for Re-Os concentrations and isotopic ratios. Seven barren and mineralized samples from the Jezírka deposit yielded a Re-Os regression of 341.5 ± 7.9 Ma (MSWD = 69). Strongly mineralized peridotite with mantle-like initial 187Os/188Os ratio of 0.125 suggests that Os as well as other PGE present in the Ni-Cu mineralization are predominantly of mantle origin. On the other hand, barren and low-mineralized samples have radiogenic initial 187Os/188Os ratios of 0.14-0.16 suggesting some import of Re and/or radiogenic 187Os most likely through contamination by continental crust during magma emplacement. The Re-Os age of the Ransko Massif is significantly younger than the previously suggested Lower Cambrian age, but it is similar to and/or younger than the age of metamorphism of the adjacent Kutná Hora crystalline complex and the Moldanubian unit. Therefore, it is likely that the emplacement of the Ransko massif and its Ni-Cu mineralization was closely connected with the late-stage evolution of the Kutná Hora crystalline complex.

    The Pyrenees massif, boundary between France and Spain, is characterized by a low rate of deformation, with few active faults visible at surface, but which exhibits a permanent seismic activity with moderate magnitude events. For now, few active faults are reported following large geological discontinuities. Nevertheless, the faults responsible of the largest historical seismic events are not completely resolved and unambiguously known, as the 1660, 1750 and 1967 earthquakes. Furthermore, recent seismicity, with improved quality of location, focal depth, and threshold of detection, shows that the active fault pattern is more complex, and more segmented. Determining possible active faults in order to understand the deformation pattern in such a massif requires to combine few observation techniques as surface deformation using satellite images and seismicity distribution. We thus realized a new fault cartography of the pyrenean massif based on orthorectified satellite images and complete seismicity, which allows to precise the fault interaction at regional scale and the geodynamics

    Based on research conducted in three Variscan granitoid massifs located within the crystalline Bohemian Massif, the authors confirmed that the higher the degree of their erosional dissection, the smaller the concentration of (222)Rn in groundwaters circulating in these massifs. This notion implies that radon waters and high-radon waters, from which at least some of the dissolved radon should be removed before feeding them as drinking water to the water-supply system, could be expected in granitoid massifs which have been poorly exposed by erosion. At the same time, such massifs must be taken into account as the areas of possible occurrence of radon medicinal waters, which in some countries can be used for balneotherapy in health resorts. Slightly eroded granitoid massifs should be also regarded as very probable radon prone areas or areas of high radon potential. PMID:24657989

    Founded in 1973, the Northeast Document Conservation Center (NDCC) was created to address the rapid deterioration of older paper-based documents in a number of institutions across New England. On their website, visitors can learn about their conservation and imaging services, and also examine some of their fine resources intended for members of the preservation community. The "Resources" area is a good place to start, as it contains a number of suggestions for preserving private and family collections and also contains a set of additional web-based resources and links. Beyond those materials, there are a number of digitized leaflets here, such as "Assessing Preservation Needs: A Self-Survey Guide" and "Preservation of Library and Archival Materials". The site is rounded out by an excellent disaster assistance section that includes an online disaster planning tool called "dPlan" and a set of general guidelines for archival institutions that may be coping with such situations.

  12. Northeast Pacific flatfish management

    Trumble, Robert J.

    1998-03-01

    Exploitation of northeast Pacific flatfish effectively began in the late 1800s with the fishery for Pacific halibut. Harvest of other flatfish occurred on a limited, local basis until foreign fishing fleets came to the area in the late 1950s. When US and Canadian fishermen replaced the foreign fleets in the 1970s and 1980s, a conservation-based management system designed to control foreign fishing was applied to the domestic fleet. Flatfish stock assessment is based on scientific surveys, both trawl and longline, and on catch-age models. In Alaskan waters since 1989 and since 1996 in Canadian waters, mandatory observers collect data on species composition, discards of flatfish and other groundfish, and catch and discards of prohibited species. Fishermen pay observer costs. Most biomass and harvest occurs in the Bering Sea-Aleutian Islands area. Many northeast Pacific flatfish are near record-high abundance, an order of magnitude higher than 20 years ago. Exploitation rates based on F35% or F0.1 generate acceptable biological catch of more than 1 million mt, but annual harvest reaches only 300,000 mt. Total groundfish harvest is limited by an optimum yield limit of 2 million mt in the Bering Sea-Aleutian Islands, where the acceptable biological catch is 3 million mt, and by limits on amounts of Pacific halibut and other prohibited species bycatch. Most flatfish are relatively low-value species, and fishermen chose to fish for more valuable species. A large, powerful fleet which developed under open access in the US saw fishing time decline and economic problems increase as catching capacity grew, while Canada stabilized its fleet with limited entry and catch restrictions for individual vessels.

    1987-03-01

    The present paper aims to synthesize results of a systematic paleomagnetic investigation performed on metamorphic, plutonic and volcanic series from the Central Massif. Detailed, thermal and alternating field demagnetizations yield a large set of paleomagnetic directions. Several groups of directions corresponding to different age intervals are identified. The group D mean direction: D = 288°, I = 57° (37°S, 110°E), characterizes Late Devonian/Early Carboniferous metamorphic and plutonic rocks from Limousin. The group C' directions: D = 301°, I = 24° (30°S, 79°E), represent Late Visean/Namurian magnetizations, present in the major investigated areas. The group B directions: D = 249°, I = 7° (12°N, 111°E), exist not only in the whole Central Massif, but also in other Paleozoic outcrops of the Variscan belt. They were acquired during the Namurian/Westphalian. The group A'-A directions are the only typically "European" magnetic directions. They have taken place in Stephanian/Autunian times, mainly during the Kiaman reversed interval. Interpretation of these directions in terms of geodynamics leads to a probable large S-N drift of the massif during the Latest Devonian/Early Carboniferous followed by two important rotation phases, first in the Middle Carboniferous, then at the end of the Westphalian. These rotations have also affected other massifs of the Variscan belt.

  17. Late orogenic carboniferous extensions in the Variscan French Massif Central

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Faure, Michel

    1995-02-01

    The Variscan French Massif Central experienced two successive stages of extension from Middle Carboniferous to Early Permian. In the northern Massif Central, the first stage began in the late Visean, immediately after nappe stacking, and is well recorded by Namurian-Westphalian synkinematic plutonism. The Middle Carboniferous leucogranites widespread in the NW Massif Central (Limousin and Sioule area) were emplaced within a crust extending along a NE-SW direction. At the same time, the hanging wall or "Guéret extensional allochton" moved toward the SE. Several examples of the synextensional plutonism are also recognized in central Limousin: Saint Mathieu dome, La Porcherie, and Cornil leucogranites. These examples illustrate the relationship between granite emplacement and crustal scale deformation characterized by NW-SE stretching and NE-SW shortening. In the central and southern Massif Central (Cévennes, Châtaigneraie, and Margeride areas), plutonism is dominantly granodioritic and exhibits the same structural features: NW-SE maximum stretching and overturning to the SE. Middle Carboniferous (Namurian-Westphalian) extension was parallel to the Variscan belt both in the Massif Central and southern Armorican area. This extensional regime was active from the late Visean in the north, while compression dominated in the southernmost domains (Montagne Noire and Pyrenées). The second extensional stage occurred from Late Carboniferous to Early Permian. This event was responsible for the opening of intramontane coal basins, brittle deformation in the upper crust, and ductile normal faulting localized on the margin of cordierite granite-migmatite domes. Data from the coal basins show that the half-graben is the dominant structural style, except for basins located along submeridianal left-lateral faults which have pull-apart geometries. Late Carboniferous extension occurred along the NE-SW direction. The NE-SW maximum stretching direction can be found in the whole Massif Central but is more developed in the eastern part. The extensional direction is transverse to the general trend of the belt, and top-to-the-NE shearing is dominant. Correlations of these two extension directions with neighboring Variscan massifs are discussed.

  18. Structure of late Variscan Millevaches leucogranite massif in the French Massif Central: AMS and gravity modelling results

    2006-01-01

    In the Limousin area, Variscan leucogranitic plutons are spatially associated with normal faults and major strike-slip shear zones that are a continuation of the South Armorican shear zone. Our study focuses on the large N-S-trending Millevaches granitic massif (Massif Central, France), and intends to highlight, through gravity modelling, structural and anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility (AMS), the massif structure at depth and to discuss the mode of emplacement of granites within a strike-slip tectonic context. The mica subfabric suggests that the magnetic foliations display a general NW-SE sub-horizontal pattern on both sides of the N-S Pradines dextral wrench fault zone that deforms the core of the massif on 5 km width. The magnetic lineation trend exhibits a sigmoïdal pattern, N-S in the Pradines fault zone and NW-SE on both sides of it, which are consistent with a dextral wrench component. The horizontal magnetic foliations and lineations are consistent with the thin granite laccolith model. There is no significant imprint of the extensional Variscan belt collapse on the internal fabric of Millevaches granites than the tectonic dextral transcurrent movement prevailing in this area.

  19. New thermochronological constraints for the exhumation of the Aiguilles Rouges massif, Western Alps

    During Oligo-Miocene times, the proximal part of the European passive margin underwent collisional shortening. In the outermost part of the Alpine arc, this shortening occurred in the fold-and-thrust belts (Bornes, Bauges, Chartreuse and Vercors massifs) with no significant tectonic burial. In the External Crystalline Massifs (ECM: Mont Blanc, Aiguilles Rouges, Belledonne, Oisans massifs) the crust was buried at mid-crustal depths below the internal units at 35 to 30 Ma. Along the ECORS profile, the timing of the Mont Blanc massif deformation and exhumation is now well constrained. However, the exhumation of the Aiguilles Rouges massif is much less constrained and this led to various and contrasting interpretations in terms of structural style and sequence of shortening. In this contribution, we present a new thermochronological dataset of the southern part of the Aiguilles Rouges massif. (U-Th-Sm)/He ages on zircons were obtained on three different elevation profiles. Preliminary results indicate ages around 7-8 Ma, which are consistent with Apatite Fission Track data. Those results will allow us to better constrain the timing of the Aiguilles Rouges massifs exhumation relative to the Mont Blanc massif and decipher whether these massifs are deformed in the forward sequence or not, if there were some out-of-sequence major shear zones/thrusts, or if these massifs were deformed sub-coevally. This has major implications in terms of both Alpine collisional wedge kinematics and crustal rheology of the European margin during the Tertiary collision.

  20. Lithospheric Structure Along the Wide-Angle Seismic Reflection Transect of the Central Iberian Massif

    The Iberian Massif is the largest outcrop of the Late Paleozoic Variscan Orogen in western Europe. In May 2012, a spatially dense high resolution wide-angle seismic reflection profile ALCUDIA was acquired across the Central Iberian Massif. The ALCUDIA wide-angle profile investigates lithospheric structure of the Central Iberian Zone and a suture zone (the Central Unit). The experiment consisted in a main SW-NE line of receivers, c. 300 km long, and a supplementary transect, c. 35 km long, that sampled the crust beneath the Central Iberian System. The acoustic energy generated by 5 shots, c. 70 km apart, was recorded by over 900 TEXANS (single component, digital recording stations) from the IRIS-PASSCAL Instrument Center. Each shot consisted in 1 TM of explosives fired in a single 55-65 m deep borehole. Approximately, 100 stations were deployed across the Central Iberian System in an effort to map the topography of the crust mantle boundary beneath this mountain range. This design generated enough energy to be able to identify Pn and even mantle reflections. The preliminary analysis of the shot gathers reveals that the recorded events features relatively low frequencies (4-30 Hz). The processing of the shot gathers resulted into high amplitude reflective events within the upper crust and strong PmP phases. From the southwest to northeast, the interpreted PmP arrivals are located at c. 11 s and c. 12 s (normal incidence traveltime) respectively. The ALCUDIA wide-angle profile provided a detailed P-wave velocity structural model and complemented the previously acquired normal incidence deep seismic profile ALCUDIA. The velocity model obtained by forward modelling constraints the composition of the crust and upper mantle. The upper crust is located at c. 13 km and the Moho is in the 32-36 km range, equates to normal incidence reflection profile ALCUDIA. Existing knowledge indicates that the mid-lower crust along the southern part of the CIZ is characterized by relatively high mafic compositions.

  1. K-alkaline rocks and lamproites of Tomtor massif

    2015-04-01

    Tomtor massif of the largest volcano-plutonic deep alkaline-carbonatite massifs world central type. Area of massif occupy 240 km2 and carbonatites stock is 40 km2. The super large deposit of Nb, TR, Y, Sc, Sr ,REE (Frolov et al. 2001)is found within the massif. The numerical publication are devoted to the ore mineralization there. But the geological struc-ture of the massif and the chemistry of its constituting rocks are not well understood. We obtained new ages based on U-Pb zircon and mica Ar-Ar method (Kotov, Vladykin et al. 2014 Vladykin et al. 2015). The massif was created in 2 stages: 700 and 400 Ma. We (Vla-dykin et al 1998) found rocks of lamproite series and proposed a new scheme of magmatism and the ore.genesis (Vladykin 2007, 2009). Biotite - pyroxenite, peridotite originated in first stage and then intruded iolites, nepheline and alkali syenite. Syenites occupy 70% of -massif and contain 12-13% K2O and 2-4% Na2O showing the K-alkaline-ultramafic nature of Tomtor volcano-plutonic massif (Vladykin 2009). The first stage was accomplished by nelsonitov calcite, dolomite and ankerite carbonatites. Second stage (400Ma) volcanics picrite - lamproite veins and eruptive breccias meli-lite, melanephelinites, tinguaites appered. These rocks are cut by carbonatites of second stage. It was finished by intensive explosive eruption of a silicate (lamproite) tuffs lavobrec-cia kimberlite formed Ebelyakhdiamondiferous placer, melilite rocks in diatremes (feeders), as well as carbonate-phosphate (kamaforite) explosive tuffs with siderite ores. This carbona-tite complex is preserved within the subsidence caldera. Tuff eruption in conjunction with gas and hydrothermal activity determined its rare metal mineralization. These rocks contain to: Nb- 21%, TR-15%, Y-1.5%, Sc-1%, Zr- 0,5% Zn-, Sr-6%, Ti-8%, Ba-4%, V - 8000 ppm, Be- 300 ppm, Ga- 80 ppm, Cr- 1200ppm, Ni- 230 ppm, Mo- 145 ppm, Pb- 4300 ppm, Th- 1500 ppm, U-193 ppm. Picrite - olivine (rare leucite) lamproite and formed volcanic flows, sills, dikes and breccia diatremes having total thickness up to 300 m. (Vladykin, Torbeeva 2005) Lamproites composed of faceted olivine crystals, elongated mica (20 to 50%) and pyroxenes and subor-dinate perovskite, chromite and magnetite. Lamproites are subjected to intense carbona-tion. Leucite lamproites are composed of rounded discharge leucite (substituted by car-bonate) graines, "plastered" by mica secretions and fine pyroxene grains and sometimes sanidines. Phlogopite - annite micas of phlogopite lamproite contains to TiO2 (4-8%) and Cr (up to 1000 ppm). Pyroxenes are diopsides and K prevail in sanidines. There are now Eu anomalies they reveal spectra similar to Australian Ol= lamproites. Isotopic studies (Pokrovsky 2001, Vladykin 2006) indicate mantle originof silicate rocks. and ores excluding secondary redeposition (Vladykin 2009). RFBR grant 15-05-01005.

    The Department of Interior Northeast Climate Science Center (NE CSC) is part of a federal network of eight Climate Science Centers created to provide scientific information, tools, and techniques that managers and other parties interested in land, water, wildlife and cultural resources can use to anticipate, monitor, and adapt to climate change. Recognizing the critical threats, unique climate challenges, and expansive and diverse nature of the northeast region, the University of Massachusetts Amherst, College of Menominee Nation, Columbia University, Marine Biological Laboratory, University of Minnesota, University of Missouri Columbia, and University of Wisconsin-Madison have formed a consortium to host the NE CSC. This partnership with the U.S. Geological Survey climate science center network provides wide-reaching expertise, resources, and established professional collaborations in both climate science and natural and cultural resources management. This interdisciplinary approach is needed for successfully meeting the regional needs for climate impact assessment, adaptive management, education, and stakeholder outreach throughout the northeast region. Thus, the NE CSC conducts research, both through its general funds and its annual competitive award process, that responds to the needs of natural resource management partners that exist, in part or whole, within the NE CSC bounds. This domain includes the North Atlantic, Upper Midwest and Great Lakes, Eastern Tallgrass and Big Rivers, and Appalachian Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs), among other management stakeholders. For example, researchers are developing techniques to monitor tree range dynamics as affected by natural disturbances which can enable adaptation of projected climate impacts; conducting a Designing Sustainable Landscapes project to assess the capability of current and potential future landscapes in the Northeast to provide integral ecosystems and suitable habitat for a suite of representative species and provide guidance for strategic habitat conservation; studying the effects of changes in the frequency and magnitude of drought and stream temperature on brook trout habitats, spatial distribution and population persistence; and conducting assessments of northeastern regional climate projections and high-resolution downscaling.

  9. Petrogenesis of Variscan lamproites of the Bohemian Massif

    2015-04-01

    Paleozoic convergence of Laurussia and Gondwana-derived terranes with subduction of oceanic and continental crust of various compositions metasomatized the local mantle, a process which eventually led to a highly heterogeneous lithospheric mantle beneath the European Variscides. The eastern termination of the European Variscides (Moldanubian and Saxo-Thuringian zones of the Bohemian Massif in the Czech Republic, Austria, Germany, and Poland) is unusual as within a small area, the mantle had been modified by material from several subduction zones. Along the eastern border of the Bohemian Massif, mantle-derived dyke intrusions of peralkaline, perpotassic, and ultrapotassic compositions occur. The rocks are distinguished by mineral associations with K-amphibole and Fe-microcline and correspond mineralogically to a new variety of silica-rich lamproites. Lamproites from the Moldanubian Zone contain characteristic Ba-Ti-Zr accessory minerals (e.g., baotite, benitoite, hollandite), whereas lamproites from the Saxo-Thuringian Zone lack these minerals. Variscan lamproites from the Bohemian Massif sampled lithospheric mantle, whose chemical signature reflects extreme depletion (low CaO and Al2O3 contents) followed by strong metasomatic enrichment by material released from the subducted rocks, giving rise to crust-like trace element pattern, variably radiogenic Sr and unradiogenic Nd isotopic compositions, crustal Pb isotopic compositions, and a wide range of ?7Li ratios ranging from markedly positive to highly negative values. The metasomatic component is variably prominent in the lamproites, depending on the extent of partial melting, and the nature of the source of the metasomatic component. Preferential melting of the metasomatically enriched lithospheric mantle with stable K-amphibole resulted in lamproitic melts with very negative ?7Li values, which correlate positively with the peralkalinity, HFSE contents, and lower É?Nd of these rocks. Both, higher degree of melting and consumption of the metasomatic component reduce the chemical and isotopic impact of the metasomatic contribution to the lamproites. The very positive ?7Li values of some lamproites together with the depleted geochemical signature of the whole rocks indicate that subducted altered oceanic crust also may have modified the source of these lamproites.

Band 6 and 7 show the fractures emphasized by forest boundaries and by the linear trace of water courses. The most remarkable information drawn from the preliminary investigation of two ERTS-1 images covering two different landscapes, a regular relief of shelving plateau bounded by cuestas having a sedimentary origin and a mountainous region built in crystalline and volcanic rocks, is that the deep structural elements under a thick sedimentary cover can be translated on the surface by indirect criteria. MSS imagery has permitted the Metz fault to be extended towards the west and shows clearly, through land use on the Rhone Valley fluvial deposit, the continuation towards the east of the carboniferous basin of St. Etienne.

    Gromet, L.P.; Dymek, R.F.

    1985-01-01

    The St. Urbain massif is a post-orogenic anorthosite pluton (approx. 500 km/sup 2/) emplaced within the central high-grade granulite terrain of the Grenville structural province. In contrast to other Grenville anorthosites, primary magmatic features are largely preserved. The massif consists predominantly of andesine anorthosite (AA) of remarkable purity containing abundant plagioclase megacrysts. AA has high K/sub 2/O (approx. 2 wgt.%), very high Sr contents (approx. 1200 ppm) and highly fractionated, low REE contents. Features of AA provide the following insights into anorthosite origins: (1) Crystallization from anorthositic magmas, as evidenced by early crystallization of abundant antiperthitic plag, and igneous emplacement of AA dikes and veins into older, unrelated labradorite anorthosite; (2) in situ crystallization of pyroxene after plag, with no direct evidence of earlier crystallization of mafic minerals from a basaltic parent magma; (3) limited differentiation during crystallization, indicated by small variation in plag and opx and limited variations in plag Sr and REE contents; (4) the involvement of water, suggested by the late igneous crystallization of biotite and the localized grain-boundary replacement of plag by calcic myrmekite (An/sub 80/ + qtz). (5) high temperature, relatively oxidizing conditions, indicated by magmatic hemoilmenite +/- rutile and rare ferropseudobrookite in AA and associated ores. AA crystallized from highly feldspathic, relatively oxidized, somewhat hydrous parent magma with little trapped melt. The development of a hyperfeldspathic parent magma with the requisite geochemical features can be ascribed to hydrous partial melting of mafic (to intermediate) rocks at deep crustal or greater depths, leaving a garnetiferous residue.

    The Atlantis Massif, located at the intersection of the Atlantis transform fault and the Mid-Atlantic Ridge at 30°N, is one of the best-studied oceanic core complexes (OCCs) and is the target of IODP Expedition 357 late 2015. Drilling will address two exciting discoveries in ridge research: off-axis, serpentinite-hosted hydrothermal activity and carbonate precipitation, exemplified by the Lost City hydrothermal field, and the significance of tectono-magmatic processes in forming heterogeneous and variably serpentinized lithosphere as key components of slow spreading ridges. Serpentinization reactions at moderate- to low-temperatures result in alkaline fluids, characterized by elevated concentrations of abiotic hydrogen, methane and low molecular weight hydrocarbons, and which lead to precipitation of carbonate and brucite upon mixing with seawater. These highly reactive systems have major consequences for lithospheric cooling, global geochemical cycles, carbon sequestration and microbial activity. However, little is known about the nature and distribution of microbial communities in subsurface ultramafic environments and the potential for a hydrogen-based deep biosphere in areas of active serpentinization and fluid circulation. The continuous flux of reduced compounds provides abundant thermodynamic energy to drive chemolithoautotrophy, however, carbon availability may be limited in these high pH environments and represent a challenge for microbial growth. Here we review serpentinization processes as fundamental to understanding the evolution of oceanic lithosphere and discuss open questions related to the impact of serpentinization on the subsurface biosphere. Motivations for drilling the shallow subseafloor of the Atlantis Massif include: (1) exploring the extent and activity of the subsurface biosphere in young ultramafic and mafic seafloor; (2) quantifying the role of serpentinization in driving hydrothermal systems, in sustaining microbiological communities and in the sequestration of carbon in ultramafic rocks; (3) assessing how abiotic and biotic processes change with aging of the lithosphere and with variations in rock type; and (4) characterizing tectono-magmatic processes at OCCs and the evolution of hydrothermal activity associated with detachment faulting.

    2009-04-01

    The Bohemian Massif, a Precambrian cratonic terrane, had been affected by several orogeneses forming its tectonic pattern. To detect the recent geodynamic motions going on fundamental geological structures of the Massif four regional geodynamic networks were established for epoch GPS measurements and one countrywide GEONAS network for permanent GPS satellite signals monitoring. In the east part of the Bohemian Massif sinistral movements on the Sudetic NW-SE faults and as well on the NNE-SSW faults of the Moravo-Silesian tectonic system have been detected. The sinistral trends dominate on many faults situated close to the contact of the Moldanuabian and Lugian parts and the Moravo-Silesian part of the Bohemian Massif. Because of tectonic systems intersections an existence of dextral movements cannot be excluded. Additional analyses displayed that eastern part of the Massif could be under extending trends. The preliminary site velocities assessed from GPS data for the eastern part of the Bohemian Massif are discussed from a viewpoint of regional geological structure motions. The work was supported by the Grant Agency of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic (Project IAA300460507), the Targeted Research Programme of the Academy of Sciences of the CR (1QS300460551) and by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport of the Czech Republic (Projects LC506 and 1P05ME781).

    The Alanya Massif, which is located to the south of central Taurides in Turkey, presents a typical nappe pile consisting of thrust sheets with contrasting metamorphic histories. In two thrust sheets, Sugözü and Gündo?mu? nappes, HP metamorphism under eclogite (550-567 °C/14-18 kbar) and blueschist facies (435-480 °C/11-13 kbar) conditions have been recognized, respectively. Whereas the rest of the Massif underwent MP metamorphism under greenschist to amphibolite facies (525-555 °C/6.5-7.5 kbar) conditions. Eclogite facies metamorphism in Sugözü nappe, which consists of homogeneous garnet-glaucophane-phengite schists with eclogite lenses is dated at 84.8 ± 0.8, 84.7 ± 1.5 and 82 ± 3 Ma (Santonian-Campanian) by 40Ar/39Ar phengite, U/Pb zircon and rutile dating methods, respectively. Similarly, phengites in Gündo?mu? nappe representing an accretionary complex yield 82-80 Ma (Campanian) ages for blueschist facies metamorphism. During the exhumation, the retrograde overprint of the HP units under greenschist-amphibolite facies conditions and tectonic juxtaposition with the Barrovian units occurred during Campanian (75-78 Ma). Petrological and geochronological data clearly indicate a similar Late Cretaceous tectonometamorphic evolution for both Alanya (84-75 Ma) and Bitlis (84-72 Ma) Massifs. They form part of a single continental sliver (Alanya-Bitlis microcontinent), which was rifted from the southern part of the Anatolide-Tauride platform. The P-T-t coherence between two Massifs suggests that both Massifs have been derived from the closure of the same ocean (Alanya-Bitlis Ocean) located to the south of the Anatolide-Tauride block by a northward subduction. The boundary separating the autochthonous Tauride platform to the north from both the Alanya and Bitlis Massifs to the south represents a suture zone, the Pamphylian-Alanya-Bitlis suture.

    In this study we present initial results of P-wave Receiver Functions (RF) calculated from broad-band waveforms of teleseismic events recorded by temporary and permanent stations in the Bohemian Massif (BM, Central Europe). Temporary arrays BOHEMA I (2001-2003), BOHEMA II (2004-2005) and BOHEMA III (2005-2006) operated during passive seismic experiments oriented towards studying velocity structure of the lithosphere and the upper mantle. Receiver Functions show relative response of the Earth structure under a seismic station and nowadays represent frequently-used method to retrieve structure of the crust, whose knowledge is needed in various studies of the upper mantle. The recorded waveforms are composites of direct P and P-to-S converted waves that reverberate in the structure beneath the receiver (Ammon, 1997). The RFs are sensitive to seismic velocity contrast and are thus suited to identifying velocity discontinuities in the crust, including the Mohorovi?i? discontinuity (Moho). Relative travel-time delays of the converted phases detected in the RFs are transformed into estimates of discontinuity depths assuming external information on the vp/vs and P velocity. To evaluate RFs we use the Multiple-taper spectral correlation (MTC) method (Park and Levin, 2000) and process signals from teleseismic events at epicentral distances of 30 - 100° with magnitude Mw > 5.5. Recordings are filtered with Butterworth band-pass filter of 2 - 8 s. To select automatically signals which are strong enough, we calculate signal-to-noise ratios (SNR) in two steps. In the first step we calculate SNR for signals from intervals (-1s, 3s)/(-10s, -2s), where P-arrival time represent time zero. In the second step we broaden the intervals and calculate SNR for (-1s, 9s)/(-60s, -2s). We also employ forward modelling of the RFs using Interactive Receiver Functions Forward Modeller (IRFFM) (Tkal?i? et al., 2010) to produce, in the first step, one-dimensional velocity models under individual seismic station. Stacked traces of the RFs show strong conversions with positive polarity (indicating a velocity increase across the discontinuity) between 3.3 and 4.5 s after the P-wave arrival at almost all stations. We relate these pulses to conversions at the Moho discontinuity. Assuming a constant crustal vp/vs ratio (1.73) and average crustal velocity vp=6.3 km/s for all stations, analogically to Geissler et al (2012), we multiply the evaluated Ps delay times by factor of 8.3 km/s and estimate the Moho beneath the Bohemian Massif at depths between 27 and 37 km. The crust is thinnest in the western part of the BM, beneath the SW end of the Eger Rift. The Moldanubian part of the BM exhibits the thickest crust. At most of the stations we also see one or two intra-crustal conversions, sometimes stronger than that related to the Moho. Several stations exhibit significant variations of the RF with back-azimuth. The aim of this study is to update existing three dimensional P-velocity crustal model of the Bohemian Massif (Karousová et al., 2012) compiled from control-source seismic results.

    Low pressure granulite facies rocks are commonly found in the Bohemian Massif in Upper Austria. They belong to the Moldanubian Unit and were metamorphosed during the last stage of the Variscan orogeny. The investigated granulites from the Donau valley (west of Linz), Lichtenberg (northwest of Linz), Sauwald (south of the river Danube) and Bad Leonfelden zone comprise mainly migmatic paragneisses. Most of these rocks underwent high degrees of melting forming meta- and diatexites (''Perlgneise)''. Al-rich metapelites with partly cm-sized garnet porphyroblasts, which are suitable for precise PT and PT-path determinations, can be found in some localities of this unit. In this study samples taken along the Danube valley between Linz and Wilhering, from Lichtenberg and from Bad Leonfelden (north of Linz) were sampled and investigated petrographically in detail. Since garnets are rare and usually consumed by cordierite, a sample with large garnets was investigated in detail. A chemical zoning profile across the c. 1cm large garnet displayed elevated Ca contents (Xgrs=0.06) in the central part which decreased discontinuously towards the rim to Xgrs=0.02. Almandine, pyrope and spessartine components do not show any pronounced zoning pattern. Most of the smaller garnet grains in other samples are also homogeneous in composition with a slight Xalm increase and Xprp decrease at the rims, typical for retrograde diffusional zoning. The cordierite-garnet-sillimanite-granulites as well as some mafic granulites were used for geothermobarometry. Metamorphic conditions of around 770°C to 850°C and 0.5-0.6 GPa could be obtained, which are similar to the values obtained by Tropper et al. (2006). P. Tropper I. Deibl F. Finger R. Kaindl (2006).

  5. Alpe Arami: a peridotite massif from the Mantle Transition Zone?

    Petrologic discoveries made over the last ten years have shown that in regions of continent-continent collision, rocks of the continental crust can be subducted to much greater depths than previously considered reasonable. Documentation of such extreme subduction has come from discovery of diamond, coesite and other high pressure phases; in many cases these phases, metastable at the Earth's surface, are only preserved as inclusions in strong, refractory minerals that either have a broad pressure range of stability or exhibit very sluggish kinetics of reaction to low pressure forms. The Alpe Arami peridotite of the Swiss Alps displays extensive exsolution of FeTiO 3 rods in the oldest generation of olivine. The shape, orientation and abundance of the titanate rods provide strong indication that the phase originally exsolved was the orthorhombic pervoskite phase stable only at pressures greater than 10 GPa (300 km depth) at mantle temperatures. We show here that the dislocation substructure of the oldest generation of olivine is younger than the titanate rods and similar to that observed in peridotites the world over and in experiments; the slip systems represented are incapable of producing the unique and unexplained lattice preferred orientation (LPO) displayed by this generation of olivine. We also have conducted preliminary experiments to investigate the maximum solubility of FeTiO 3 in olivine. Our results suggest that the solubility of TiO 2 implied by the abundance of titanate precipitates may be impossible under any conditions of olivine stability. On the other hand, the measured solubility in wadsleyite (?-olivine) under the conditions of our experiments is comparable to that inferred for Alpe Arami olivine. This latter observation combined with the determination that the titanate rods and LPO of this generation of olivine are the oldest features yet identified in these rocks, leads us to speculate that this massif has been brought to the Earth's surface from within the mantle transition zone, at depths of 410-660 km. The only mechanism by which we can envision this to have been accomplished is for the Lepontine gneisses that now surround the massif to have been subducted to great depth following collision of Africa and Europe, and to have picked up the peridotite on their way back to the surface by buoyant upwelling.

    The need for an alternative drug for malaria initiated intensive efforts for developing new antimalarials from indigenous plants. The information from different tribal communities of northeast India along with research papers, including books, journals and documents of different universities and institutes of northeast India was collected for information on botanical therapies and plant species used for malaria. Sixty-eight plant species belonging to 33 families are used by the people of northeast India for the treatment of malaria. Six plant species, namely, Alstonia scholaris, Coptis teeta, Crotolaria occulta, Ocimum sanctum, Polygala persicariaefolia, Vitex peduncularis, have been reported by more than one worker from different parts of northeast India. The species reported to be used for the treatment of malaria were either found around the vicinity of their habitation or in the forest area of northeast India. The most frequently used plant parts were leaves (33%), roots (31%), and bark and whole plant (12%). The present study has compiled and enlisted the antimalarial plants of northeast India, which would help future workers to find out the suitable antimalarial plants by thorough study. PMID:22529674

    From October 1, 2009 through September 30, 2013 (“contract period”), the Northeast Clean Energy Application Center (“NE-CEAC”) worked in New York and New England (Connecticut, Rhode Island, Vermont, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Maine) to create a more robust market for the deployment of clean energy technologies (CETs) including combined heat and power (CHP), district energy systems (DES), and waste heat recovery (WHR) systems through the provision of technical assistance, education and outreach, and strategic market analysis and support for decision-makers. CHP, DES, and WHR can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, reduce electrical and thermal energy costs, and provide more reliable energy for users throughout the United States. The NE-CEAC’s efforts in the provision of technical assistance, education and outreach, and strategic market analysis and support for decision-makers helped advance the market for CETs in the Northeast thereby helping the region move towards the following outcomes: • Reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and criteria pollutants • Improvements in energy efficiency resulting in lower costs of doing business • Productivity gains in industry and efficiency gains in buildings • Lower regional energy costs • Strengthened energy security • Enhanced consumer choice • Reduced price risks for end-users • Economic development effects keeping more jobs and more income in our regional economy Over the contract period, NE-CEAC provided technical assistance to approximately 56 different potential end-users that were interested in CHP and other CETs for their facility or facilities. Of these 56 potential end-users, five new CHP projects totaling over 60 MW of install capacity became operational during the contract period. The NE-CEAC helped host numerous target market workshops, trainings, and webinars; and NE-CEAC staff delivered presentations at many other workshops and conferences. In total, over 60 different workshops, conferences, webinars, and presentation were hosted or delivered during the contract period. The NE-CEAC also produced publically available educational materials such as CHP project profiles. Finally, the NE-CEAC worked closely with the relevant state agencies involved with CHP development. In New York, the NE-CEAC played an important role in securing and maintaining funding for CHP incentive programs administered by the New York State Energy Research Development Authority. NE-CEAC was also involved in the NYC Mayor's Office DG Collaborative. The NECEAC was also named a strategic resource for the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection’s innovative Microgrid Pilot Program.

    The REE distribution patterns and Nd whole-rock and mineral isotope ratios of the Kingash ultramafic-mafic massif enabled us to propose a multistage history for its evolution at 1410 and 875 Ma. These stages reflect the magmatic evolution of the Siberian paleocontinent margin during the Late Precambrian. The age of metamorphism of the massif during collision and accretion in the Early Paleozoic (˜500 Ma) was obtained based on a Sm-Nd mineral isochron from rheomorphic veined albitite. The Nd and Sr isotopic compositions of rocks from the Kingash massif suggest mantle sources for picritic and basic magmas, which are thought to have originated by mixing of different proportions of depleted (PREMA or DM) and enriched (EM) melts. The initial isotope ratios of the parental melts transformed during interaction with Sr-rich material from the host metasedimentary complexes.

  10. Geomorphological and sedimentological evidences in the Western Massif of Picos de Europa since the Last Glaciation

    The Western Massif of Picos de Europa includes some of the highest peaks of the Cantabrian Mountains. However, the environmental evolution in this massif since the Last Glaciation is still poorly understood. This research provides a new geochronological approach to the sequence of environmental events occurred here since the maximum expansion of glaciers during the last Pleistocene glaciation. The distribution of the glacial landforms suggests four main stages regarding the environmental evolution in the massif: maximum glacial advance, phase of second maximum glacial expansion, Late Glacial and Little Ice Age. A 5.4-m long sedimentological section retrieved from the kame terrace of Belbín, in a mid-height area of the massif, complements the geomorphological interpretation and provides a continuous paleoenvironmental sequence from this area since the Last Glaciation until nowadays. This section suggests that the maximum glacial expansion occurred at a minimum age of 37.2 ka cal BP, significantly prior to the global Last Glacial Maximum. Subsequently, a new glacial expansion occurred around 18.7-22.5 ka cal BP. The melting of the glaciers after this phase generated a shallow lake in the Belbín depression. Lake sediments do not reveal the occurrence of a cold stage during the Late Glacial, whilst, at higher locations, moraine complexes were formed suggesting a glacier readvance. The terrestrification of this lake started at 8 ka cal BP, when Belbín changed to a peaty environment. At 5 ka cal BP human occupation started at the high lands of the massif according to the existence of charcoal particles in the section. The presence of moraines in the highest northern cirques evidences the last phase with formation of small glaciers in the Western Massif of Picos de Europa, corresponding to the Little Ice Age cold event. Since then, the warming climate has led to the melting of these glaciers.

  11. Occurrence of springs in massifs of crystalline rocks, northern Portugal

    Pacheco, Fernando António Leal; Alencoão, Ana Maria Pires

    2002-02-01

    An inventory of artesian springs emerging from fractures (fracture springs) was conducted in the Pinhão River Basin and Morais Massif, northern Portugal, comprising an area of approximately 650 km2. Over 1,500 springs were identified and associated with geological domains and fracture sets. Using cross-tabulation analysis, spring distributions by fracture sets were compared among geological environments, and the deviations related to differences in rock structure and, presumably, to differences in deformational histories. The relation between spring frequencies and rock structures was further investigated by spectral determination, the model introduced in this study. Input data are the spring frequencies and fracture lengths in each geological domain, in addition to the angles between fracture strikes and present-day stress-field orientation (?). The model's output includes the so-called intrinsic densities, a parameter indexing spring occurrence to factors such as fracture type and associated deformational regime and age. The highest densities (12.2 springs/km of lineament) were associated with young shear fractures produced by brittle deformation, and the lowest (0.1) with old tensional and ductile fractures. Spectral determination also relates each orientation class to a dominant structural parameter: where spring occurrence is controlled by ?, the class is parallel to the present-day stress-field orientation; where the control is attributed to the length of fractures, the spring occurrence follows the strike of large-scale normal faults crossing the region. Résumé. Un inventaire des sources artésiennes émergeant de fractures (sources de fractures) a été réalisé dans le bassin de la rivière Pinhão et dans le massif de Morais, dans le nord du Portugal, dans une région couvrant environ 650 km2. Plus de 1,500 sources ont été identifiées et associées à des domaines géologiques et à des ensembles de fractures. Grâce à une analyse de tableaux croisés, les distributions des sources par ensemble de fractures ont été comparées aux situations géologiques et aux écarts liés aux différences dans les structures des roches et, probablement, aux différences dans leurs histoires de déformations. Les relations entre la fréquence des sources et la structure des roches ont été étudiées ensuite par détermination spectrale, modèle présenté dans cette étude. Les données d'entrée sont les fréquences des sources et les longueurs des fractures dans chaque domaine géologique, en plus des angles entre directions de fractures et orientation du champ de contraintes actuel (?). La sortie du modèle donne les densités dites intrinsèques, un paramètre indexant l'existence d'une source à des facteurs tels que le type de fracture et le régime et l'âge associés de la déformation. Les densités les plus fortes (12,2 sources par km de linéament) ont été associées à des fractures jeunes produites par des déformations lentes, et les plus faibles (0,1) aux fractures anciennes ductiles et de tension. La détermination spectrale associe également chaque classe d'orientation à un paramètre structural dominant: quand la présence d'une source est contrôlée par ?, la classe est parallèle à l'orientation actuelle du champ de contrainte; lorsque le contrôle est attribué à la longueur des fractures, la présence de sources suit le plan des failles normales à grande échelle traversant la région.

  12. A Treasure Chest of Nanogranites: the Bohemian Massif (Central Europe)

    Despite 150 years of investigation of the Bohemian Massif (Central Europe), it is only recently that the investigation of old and new samples displayed the occurrence of tiny portions of crystallized anatectic melt in regional migmatites. These vestiges of magma, called "nanogranites", are natural probes of the partial melting processes in the crust. Original melt composition and water content can be directly analyzed after piston cylinder re-homogenization. When compared to classic re-melting experiments, nanogranites are ideal "natural" experimental charges of anatectic melt. They are encapsulated in peritectic garnet immediately after production - both phases are products of the same partial melting reaction. Sheltered inside garnet, they remain unaffected by the physico-chemical changes which affected the host migmatites during their slow cooling, unlike leucosomes and anatexis-related plutons. Five different case studies of nanogranite-bearing high-grade rocks have been identified so far: three in metapelites from the Moldanubian Zone, and two in metagranitoids from the Granulitgebirge and Orlica-?nie?nik Dome. Their characterization provides insights into how the continental crust melts at different depths, from shallow levels to mantle depths, during different moments of its metamorphic history (prograde vs. decompressional melting). For example, the investigation and experimental re-melting of nanogranites from Grt+Ky leucogranulites (Orlica-?nie?nik Dome) recently provided evidence of prograde melting of metagranitoids under eclogite-facies conditions (T?875°C and P~2.7 GPa), close to the stability field of coesite. The melt generated is granitic, hydrous (6 wt% H2O) and metaluminous (ASI=1.03), and is at the moment the "deepest" glass obtained through re-homogenization of primary polycrystalline inclusions in natural rocks. This work confirms that nanogranites in migmatites 1) are a powerful tool to constrain anatexis in natural rocks, and 2) can be found, re-homogenized and investigated in rocks melted under variable PT conditions, even at mantle depths.

  13. Biodiversity impact of the aeolian periglacial geomorphologic evolution of the Fontainebleau Massif (France)

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Thiry, M.; Liron, M. N.

    2009-04-01

    Landscape features The geomorphology of the Fontainebleau Massif is noteworthy for its spectacular narrow ridges, up to 10 km long and 0.5 km wide, armored by tightly cemented sandstone lenses and which overhang sandy depressions of about 50m. Denudation of the sandstone pans lead to a highly contrasted landscape, with sandstone ridges ("platières") towering sandy depressions ("vallées") and limestone plateaus ("monts"). This forms the geological frame of the spectacular sceneries of the Fontainebleau Massif (Thiry & Liron, 2007). Nevertheless, there is little know about the erosive processes that have built-up these landscapes. Periglacial processes, and among them aeolian ones, appear significant in the development of the Fontainebleau Massif physiography. The periglacial aeolian geomorphology Dunes and dune fields are known since long and cover about 15% to 25% of the Fontainebleau Massif. The aeolian dunes developed as well on the higher parts of the landscape, as well as in the lower parts of the landscape. The dunes are especially well developed in the whole eastern part of the massif, whereas the western part of the massif is almost devoid of dunes. Nevertheless, detailed mapping shows that dunes can locally be found in the western district, they are of limited extension, restricted to the east facing backslope of outliers. Loamy-sand covers the limestone plateaus of the "monts". The loam cover is of variable thickness: schematically thicker in the central part of the plateaus, where it my reach 3 m; elsewhere it may thin down to 0,20-0,30 m, especially at the plateau edges. Blowout hollows are "negative" morphologies from where the sand has been withdrawed. Often these blowouts are decametric sized and well-delimited structures. Others, more complex structures, are made up of several elongated hectometric hollows relaying each other from and which outline deflation corridor more than 1 km long. A characteristic feature of these blowout hollows is the erosion of the sand beneath the bordering sandstone benches, resulting in overhangs. These structures are the most common in the western district of the Fontainebleau Massif. Ponds develop on the tightly silicified and impermeable sandstone pans that form the "platières". There are permanent ponds and temporary wet zones, formed of interconnected or isolated depressions. The origin of these ponds has to be questioned with regard to the landscape shaping. Their origin is directly bound to the hollowing of uncemented, sandy zones, within the sandstone pans forming the "platières". Erosion by runoff cannot be considered; the only way to hollow them out is by deflation processes. No direct dating of the Quaternary dune and loess deposits of the Fontainebleau Massif exists. Nevertheless, dating of paleopodzols interlayered between drift sands, pond deposits and bones within congelifracts allow relating these periglacial features with the end of the last glacial period. For now, there is no dating to assess what belongs to older glacial periods. Distribution of the aeolian patterns The Fontainebleau Massif displays noteworthy morphological diversities in the various districts of the forest. Some of these differentiations result from geological features, but most of them are related to erosion processes, and among them deflation processes leaved different imprints in the western and eastern districts of the Fontainebleau Massif. The topography played an important role controlling the aeolian processes. Deflation was important in the westerly upwind district. In the westerly front face, aeolian erosion was activated by turbulences around the topographic obstacles. The reliefs funneled the winds and gave rise to swirls that hollow the blowouts. This area displays the sharpest and more chiseled landforms of the massif. Moreover, the sandstone scarps at the edge of the "platières" are high and uncovered, with frequent overhangs. The collapsed sandstone blocks of the "chaos" are im

    The Burpala alkaline massif is a unique geological object. More than 50 Zr, Nb, Ti, Th, Be, and REE minerals have been identified in rare-metal syenite of this massif. Their contents often reach tens of percent, and concentrations of rare elements in rocks are as high as 3.6% REE, 4% Zr, 0.5% Y, 0.5% Nb, 0.5% Th, and 0.1% U. Geological and geochemical data show that all rocks in the Burpala massif are derivatives of alkaline magma initially enriched in rare elements. These rocks vary in composition from shonkinite, melanocratic syenite, nepheline and alkali syenites to alaskite and alkali granite. The extreme products of magma fractionation are rare-metal pegmatites, apatite-fluorite rocks, and carbonatites. The primary melts were related to the enriched EM-2 mantle source. The U-Pb zircon ages of pulaskite (main intrusive phase) and rare-metal syenite (vein phase) are estimated at 294 ± 1 and 283 ± 8 Ma, respectively. The massif was formed as a result of impact of the mantle plume on the active continental margin of the Siberian paleocontinent.

    The Kola geotectonic province in the northeastern Fennoscandian Shield accommodates a significant number of alkaline rock massifs differing in age. They are of mantle and mantle-crustal origin (alkali and nepheline syenites, carbonatites) and related to crustal sources (Neoarchean alkali granites). Among them, the Neoarchean Sakharjok nepheline syenite massif is related to the oldest intrusions of this kind bearing yttrium-zirconium mineralization. The crystallization of alkali syenite pertaining to the first intrusive phase of the intrusive Sakharjok massif is dated to 2645 ± 7 Ma, and this implies that this syenite postdated alkali granites (2.66-2.67 Ga). To date the yttrium-zirconium ore, we applied the local U-Pb method to zircon crystals occurring in the mineralized block hosted in nepheline syenite. The earliest fragments of zircon crystallized 1832 ± 7 Ma ago; the age of metamorphism is estimated at 1784 ± 13 Ma. These dates indicate the Paleoproterozoic age of the yttrium-zirconium mineralization, which was formed as a product of fluid reworking of the Neoarchean nepheline syenite of the Sakharjok massif.

  4. Niklas - a Hitherto Unknown Deep Magmatic Massif in the Eastern Mediterranean

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    2004-12-01

    A Niklas massif was discovered recompiling the gravity and magnetic maps and interpreting in 3-D mode all the available data in the area around Eratosthenes Seamount (ESM). The updated datasets clearly show two partially superimposed magnetic dipoles, which also correspond well to disturbances in the gravity field. The pronounced Eratosthenes magnetic anomaly (EMA) is only the positive part of the southeastern dipole. There is no large gravity anomaly here, however the specific gravity pattern corresponds to the magnetic body. The northwestern `magnetic dipole coincides with a prominent (about of 100mGal) gravity high that was recently delineated by Russian geophysicists. Such grav/mag combination allowed us to interpret the anomalies as being caused by a hitherto unknown dense and magnetic body which we have named the Niklas massif. The parameters and depth of causative bodies were calculated by inverse programs and forward modeling using the seismic refraction and reflection constraints. The reliability of the final model was verified using forward modeling. The magnetic data were interpreted by assuming an induced magnetization as the main magnetizing factor. The final model consists of two large compact features oriented NE-SW and located south of the Cyprian arc,as the Eratosthenes and Niklas bodies. The gravity and magnetic pattern of the Niklas is typical for the ophiolite massifs of the Eastern Mediterranean and Southern Turkey (Troodos, Hatay, Antalya). Based on this likeness we assume the Niklas composed by dense and magnetic ophyolites. This large (~100*75km) deep-seated (~7km) thick (~7km) massif is located ~95km southwest of Cyprus. We consider the Niklas as the south-most fragment of the large allochthonous ophiolite thrust slab including the Troodos massif. The tectonic situations of the Niklas area and the central segment of the Cyprian Arc are similar to that of the Eastern Taurus, Bayer-Bassit and Hatay areas. Interaction of the large Late Cretaceous overthrusts, younger Miocene reverse faults inclined mainly to north and Miocene- Pliocene normal faults and strike-slip faults revealed to the existing tectonic pattern. A system of reverse faults of the Cyprian arc separates the Niklas massif from the Troodos. This system is the main reason of the considerably lower level of the Niklas massif relative to the Troodos one. A pronounce tectonic boundary separates probably Niklas area from the Eratosthenes Block. Upper Cretaceous section of this block is sterile of ophiolites suggesting that during the Mesozoic the paleo-Eratosthenes area was located far from present-day position.

    In the SW part of the Anabar shield Th-anomaly was he drilled by ALROSA company by 6 bore holes to a depth of 100 m, which revealed a new Maldzhangarsky rare metal carbonatite massif (Vladykin 2008). It is oval-shaped and elongated NW to SE having dimensions 4.2 x 2.5 km.. and total square ~ 10.5 km2 Carbonatites are from mean- to fine-grained light-colored. Mineral and chemical composition, tracery, dolomite are ankerite and carbonaties. Besides the carbonate it is composed by phlogopite, apatite, alkali amphibole, rarely magnetite and accessory minerals like pyrochlore, zircon, barito-celestine, rare earth carbonates and apatite, reaching 20-30%. In addition to the prevailing carbonatite the carbonatized pyroxenite xenoliths were found in the drilling cores. Geochemical study of the Maldzhangarsky massif carbonatites indicated the presence of significant quantities of typical carbonatite elements- Sr, Ba, Nb, Ta, P, Y, TRE, which is similar to the carbonatites of the Tomtor massif. Many parts of the massif are the ores for Nb, TR, Sr and P. The highest concentrations based on TRE 100 analyses of Nb-8000 ppm, Y-800 ppm; TRE-4%, Sr-10%,. The REE patterns of carbonanites are highly inclined with the r sharp prevalence of light REE on heavy with a rather steep slope., There are now Eu anomalies which is typical for the mantle carbonitetes, and which evidence for the early fractionation of alkaline carbonatite fluid orliquid from silicate melt. Pair correlation of rare earth elements in carbonatite shows their origin from a single source. The intrusive nature of the drilled carbonatites of Maldzhangarsky massif suggest them to be the top part of the unexposed massif. The belonging of this massif to any genetic type is unclear and needs more detail exploration. RBRF grant (15-05-01005). Vladykin N.v.

    The Serbo-Macedonian Massif (SMM) represents a complex crystalline terrane situated between the two diverging branches of the Eastern Mediterranean Alpine orogenic system, the northeast-vergent Carpatho-Balkanides and the southwest-vergent Dinarides and the Hellenides. It is outcropping from the Pannonian basin in the north, to the Agean Sea in the south, along the central and southeastern Serbia, southwestern Bulgaria, eastern Macedonia and southern Greece. It's affiliation to European and/or African plate basement is still questionable due to the lack of reliable geochronological data and a detailed structural investigation. The SMM is the key area for understanding the bipolarity of the Alpine orogenic system, as well as the interaction of the Pannonian and Aegean back-arc extension during the Cenozoic time. The SMM is generally considered to comprise an Upper (low-grade) and a Lower (medium to high-grade) unit (Dimitrijevi?, 1959). The protoliths of both units are reported as volcano-sedimentary successions, which have been later intruded by magmatic rocks during several pulses. On our mission to discern the main magmatic episodes and the geodynamic evolution of the SMM; we have analysed zircon grains of metamorphic rocks from both units, as well as undeformed igneous rocks. LA-ICP-MS analyses were carried out on zircon grains in order to obtain the protolith ages and geochemical analyses were carried out on the total of nineteen samples from different magmatic rocks. Our first results reveal the presence of the Permo-Triassic (253±13 Ma) and a late Variscan magmatism (Carboniferous; 315±9 Ma) in the Serbian part of the SMM; additionally, the Ordovician (490-440 Ma) and the Cadomian (Cambrian; 505 Ma and older) event complete the magmatic evolution in the Serbian part of the SMM. The new geochronological constraints, together with the field relationships, allowed us to conclude: a) The Lower SMM consists of a Cadomian (Ediacaran-early Cambrian) volcano-sedimentary sequences and magmatics, which were intruded by Ordovician magmatic rocks; b) The Upper SMM (Vlasina and Morava unit) contains a volcano-sedimentary sequence, which is intruded by the Cadomian magmatic rocks; c) In contrast to the Lower complex, no Ordovician age magmatics were documented in the Upper unit, and d) Lower and Upper SMM were covered by Silurian-Devonian sedimentary sequence. The youngest magmatic event in the SMM occurred in the late Eocene, it is related to the intrusion of Surdulica granodiorite and subsequent latitic volcanism.

    We identify the lithologic and compositional components of soil 76503 based on INAA of 243 2-4-mm particles and 72 thin sections from these and associated 1-2-mm particles (76502). We present a statistical distribution of the major compositional types as the first step of a detailed comparative study of the North and South Massifs. The soil sample was collected well away from any boulder and is more representative of typical North Massif material than any single large rock or boulder sample. So far, our examination of the 76503 particles has provided a better definition of precursor igneous lithologies and their petrogenetic relationships. It has enabled us to refine the nature of mixing components for the North Massif less than 1-mm fines. It has confirmed the differences in lithologies and their proportions between materials of the North and South Massifs; e.g., the North Massif is distinguished by the absence of a 72275-type KREEP component, the abundance of a highly magnesian igneous component, and the absence of certain types of melt compositions found in the South Massif samples.

    Berrahma, M.; Delaloye, M.

    The limit between the Anti-Atlas and the Atlas is defined by a major fault zone running SW-NE. Two volcanoes are associated to it: the Siroua and the Sahro. The Siroua massif is a 25 km wide stratovolcano built of trachytes and phonolites associated to mugearites and benmoreites. Basalts are also present but not common. Nineteen new Potassium-Argon measurements have been made on lavas of the massif. The volcano started 11 M.a. ago with tuffs and trachytes. Its activity is almost continuous until 2 M.a. ago showing alternating flows and pyroclastic deposits of alkaline composition. Basic products appear only during the latest stage of the activity. A gap in the activity is possible between 10.3 and 8.3 M.a.. This volcanism is in close relation with the collision process occurring between Europe and Africa and triggered by large N40 to N70 left-handed fault systems.

  3. Structure of oceanic core complexes: Constraints from seafloor gravity measurements made at the Atlantis Massif

    2003-04-01

    Using the DSV Alvin, the relative seafloor gravimeter ROVDOG was deployed at 18 sites on the Atlantis Massif (located at the ridge-transform intersection of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge and the Atlantis Transform Fault near 30°N, 42°W). These data along with previously collected shipboard gravity and bathymetry provide constraints on the density structure of this oceanic core complex. A series of quasi 3-D forward models suggests that symmetric east and west-dipping density interfaces bound the core of the massif with dip angles of 16°-24° in the east and 16°-28° in the west, creating a wedge with a density of 3150-3250 kg/m3. The dip angle in the east is steeper than that of the surface slope, suggesting that the detachment fault surface does not coincide with the density boundary. The resulting low-density layer is interpreted as a zone of serpentinization.

    The Khorogochi Massif is considered to comprise NW-extending bodies composed largely of anorthosites and gabbro?anorthosites foliated in high-grade metamorphism settings. These bodies occur conformably among migmatized gneisses and crystalline schists metamorphosed up to granulite facies. The largest of these bodies are 300 to 700 m thick and traceable laterally for 3?4 km. They are usually characterized by coarse bedding formed

    Precise dating of the igneous crystallization of Proterozoic massif anorthosites has suffered from a perceived paucity of magmatic phases suitable for U-Pb age determination. Since the early 1990's, ID-TIMS analysis of zircon and baddeleyite have been utilized to date a limited number of anorthosite bodies in Wyoming, Quebec, Ontario, Labrador, and Scandinavia. Recently, U-Pb SHRIMP ages have been obtained on

    Cenozoic India-Asia collision resulted in profound crustal shortening and thickening that produced the Himalaya and Tibetan Plateau. However, extensional tectonics, represented by the E-W trending south Tibetan detachment system (STDS) and N-S trending normal faults, has been a salient feature of Himalayan geology since the Miocene. To the north of the Ama Drime Massif, the STDS is crosscut by N-S

    In the Western Alps, Oligocene shortening affected a highly heterogeneous European crust with Liassic half-grabens inherited from the rifting stage and the finite deformation was strongly partitioned between the rigid basement and the weak Jurassic sediments. In the Ecrins Massif (Oisans, external crystalline massifs), where the half-grabens are best exposed and preserved, compressional structures within the basement have to date never been described in details. This massif was shortened under moderate metamorphic conditions (250-350°C and 0.1-0.5 GPa), and the rheological contrast between the basement and the cover is strong. While the sediments are intensely folded, the cover-basement interface presents apparent open folds underlined by the Lower Triassic layers. The basement itself shows a more localized deformation along several brittle-ductile shear zones. We here report new evidences of such brittle-ductile shear zones characterized by anastomosed phyllonitic shear bands rich in phengite and quartz, a low-strength material where strain has localized. New detailed maps of reverse shear zones, faults, schistosity, and stretching lineations in both the cover and the basement are provided. We show that the Oligocene crustal shortening was mainly E-W to ENE-WSW. Local N-S to NW-SE shortening occurred and was limited to the eastern border of the Ecrins Massif, around the Penninic Frontal Thrust, which likely was a sinistral transpressive structure in this area. Finally, new balanced cross sections show that these basement shear zones have accommodated more than 50% of the Oligocene crustal shortening.

    2010-12-01

    Seismic refraction data provide new constraints on the structure of the lower oceanic crust and its variability across the Atlantis Massif oceanic core complex, ˜30°N on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. A 40 km-long spreading-parallel profile constrains P-wave velocities to depths of up to ˜7 km beneath the seafloor. Two shorter spreading-perpendicular lines provide coverage to ˜2 km depth. The anomalous character of the massif's central dome crust is clear compared to the neighboring rift valley and similar-age crust on the opposite ridge flank. The domal core of the massif, unroofed via detachment faulting, has velocities >7.0 km/s at depths below ˜2.5 km sub-seafloor, increasing to 7.5-7.8 km/s over the depth range 4.8-6.8 km. Within the core complex, the Moho does not appear to be sharp as no PmP arrivals are observed. Within the axial valley, velocities do not reach mantle-transition zone values in the uppermost 6 km. We infer that crust there is of normal thickness but that a thinner than average mafic section is present in the central massif. Near IODP Hole U1309D, located on the central dome, there is a low velocity gradient interval at 1-3 km depth with velocities of 6.6-6.8 km/s, that coincides with a 3-5 km wide region where shallower velocities are highest. Given the predominantly gabbroic section recovered from the 1.4 km deep drillhole, this seismic structure suggests that the mafic body extends a few km both laterally and vertically.

    Massif-type anorthosites are large igneous complexes of Proterozoic age. They are almost monomineralic, representing vast accumulations of plagioclase with subordinate pyroxene or olivine and Fe-Ti oxides--the 930-Myr-old Rogaland anorthosite province in southwest Norway represents one of the youngest known expressions of such magmatism. The source of the magma and geodynamic setting of massif-type anorthosites remain long-standing controversies in Precambrian geology, with no consensus existing as to the nature of the parental magmas or whether these magmas primarily originate in the Earth's mantle or crust. At present, massif-type anorthosites are believed to have crystallized from either crustally contaminated mantle-derived melts that have fractionated olivine and pyroxenes at depth or primary aluminous gabbroic to jotunitic melts derived from the lower continental crust. Here we report rhenium and osmium isotopic data from the Rogaland anorthosite province that strongly support a lower crustal source for the parental magmas. There is no evidence of significantly older crust in southwest Scandinavia and models invoking crustal contamination of mantle-derived magmas fail to account for the isotopic data from the Rogaland province. Initial osmium and neodymium isotopic values testify to the melting of mafic source rocks in the lower crust with an age of 1,400-1,550 Myr. PMID:10866196

  1. U Pb dating of high temperature metamorphic episodes in the Kon Tum Massif (Vietnam)

    2007-05-01

    In Vietnam, recent studies demonstrated that the Kon Tum Massif was part of the Indosinian mountain system, together with the Truong Son Belt. One sector of the Kon Tum Massif (Song Ba valley) is a granulite facies terrain for which Ar-Ar and U-Pb ages cluster around 245-250 Ma. In the area of Song Bien river, also metamorphosed under granulite facies conditions, Ar-Ar ages of 410 Ma are displayed by biotite. In this study, U-Pb dating of monazite and zircon has been used to understand the reason for these two groups of ages, taking into account the metamorphic mineral assemblages related to granulite facies metamorphism in the two districts. For granulites of Song Ba valley, ages of 245-250 Ma are confirmed from monazites. In the Song Bien district, ages of 465-470 Ma displayed by monazites are interpreted to correspond to the metamorphic climax. Zircons from one of these samples record the age of anatexis that has affected the granulitic rocks. The younger age recorded in the Song Ba valley is considered to reflect high temperature related to charnockitic intrusions emplaced near the end of the Indosinian orogeny, overprinting the earlier formed granulites and resetting the U-Pb and Ar-Ar ages. For the first time, two HT events are dated in the Kon Tum Massif, one occurring during the Ordovician and the other during the Permo-Triassic.

  14. Jurassic hot spring deposits of the Deseado Massif (Patagonia, Argentina): Characteristics and controls on regional distribution

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Guido, Diego M.; Campbell, Kathleen A.

    2011-06-01

    The Deseado Massif, Santa Cruz Province, Argentinean Patagonia, hosts numerous Middle to Late Jurassic age geothermal and epithermal features represented by siliceous and calcareous chemical precipitates from hot springs (sinters and travertines, respectively), hydrothermal breccias, quartz veins, and widespread hydrothermal silicification. They indicate pauses in explosive volcanic activity, marking the final stages in the evolution of an extensive Jurassic (ca. 178-151 Ma) volcanic complex set in a diffuse extensional back-arc setting heralding the opening of the Atlantic Ocean. Published paleo-hot spring sites for the Deseado Massif, plus additional sites identified during our recent field studies, reveal a total of 23 locations, five of which were studied in detail to determine their geologic and facies associations. They show structural, lithologic, textural and biotic similarities with Miocene to Recent hot spring systems from the Taupo and Coromandel volcanic zones, New Zealand, as well as with modern examples from Yellowstone National Park, U.S.A. These comparisons aid in the definition of facies assemblages for Deseado Massif deposits - proximal, middle apron and distal siliceous sinter and travertine terraces and mounds, with preservation of many types of stromatolitic fabrics - that likely were controlled by formation temperature, pH, hydrodynamics and fluid compositions. Locally the mapped hot spring deposits largely occur in association with reworked volcaniclastic lacustrine and/or fluvial sediments, silicic to intermediate lava domes, and hydrothermal mineralization, all of which are related to local and regional structural lineaments. Moreover, the numerous geothermal and significant epithermal (those with published minable resources) deposits of the Deseado Massif geological province mostly occur in four regional NNW and WNW hydrothermal-structural belts (Northwestern, Northern, Central, and Southern), defined here by alignment of five or more hot spring deposits and confirmed as structurally controlled by aeromagnetic data. The Northern and Northwestern belts, in particular, concentrate most of the geothermal and epithermal occurrences. Hence, Jurassic hydrothermal fluid flow was strongly influenced by the most dominant and long-active geological boundaries in the region, the outer limits of the Deseado Massif 'horst' itself.

    Bromeliaceae is an important botany family that includes many species with economic value; demand for members of this family is increasing. However, illegal collection frequently occurs, drastically reducing the species populations; thus, it is necessary to collect and store Bromeliaceae genetic material. In this study, we identified and quantified genetic variability of the Bromeliad family using dominant markers to create the first Germplasm Bank in the northeast region of Brazil. Molecular tools were used to characterize the collected accessions. The combination of 11 inter-simple sequence repeats and 13 random amplified polymorphic DNA markers were used to detect the genetic variability of wild bromeliad accessions. PMID:25501194

    This report presents the results of site analysis for the Bonneville Power Administration Northeast Oregon Hatchery Project. The purpose of this project is to provide engineering services for the siting and conceptual design of hatchery facilities for the Bonneville Power Administration. The hatchery project consists of artificial production facilities for salmon and steelhead to enhance production in three adjacent tributaries to the Columbia River in northeast Oregon: the Grande Ronde, Walla Walla, and Imnaha River drainage basins. Facilities identified in the master plan include adult capture and holding facilities; spawning incubation, and early rearing facilities; full-term rearing facilities; and direct release or acclimation facilities. The evaluation includes consideration of a main production facility for one or more of the basins or several smaller satellite production facilities to be located within major subbasins. The historic and current distribution of spring and fall chinook salmon and steelhead was summarized for the Columbia River tributaries. Current and future production and release objectives were reviewed. Among the three tributaries, forty seven sites were evaluated and compared to facility requirements for water and space. Site screening was conducted to identify the sites with the most potential for facility development. Alternative sites were selected for conceptual design of each facility type. A proposed program for adult holding facilities, final rearing/acclimation, and direct release facilities was developed.

    2014-12-01

    We documented and mapped the characteristics of the seafloor on the Atlantis Massif, an ocean core complex located at 30°N on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Our goal is to investigate the implications of these surficial features, particularly whether their spatial variations might reflect subsurface lithology and geological processes. We utilized data collected during the MARVEL 2000 cruise AT3-60, specifically Alvin videos and rock samples, Argo II digital still photos, and TOBI/DSL-120 side-scan sonar mosaic. The Alvin dives studied occurred over the Central Dome and Eastern Block, which is interpreted as the hanging wall to the detachment that unroofed the dome. We also studied two Argo II dives located over the Central Dome, one over the Eastern Block, and one over the Western Shoulder of the southern dome. The TOBI/DSL-120 side-scan sonar followed a widespread, looped track providing near total coverage of the massif. We classified the character of the seafloor based on imagery, the acoustic reflectivity, and the basic composition of rock samples. To aid in our classification, we merged Argo II still images to produce photo-mosaics displaying tens of meters long transects. We then classified the seafloor as unconsolidated sediment, lithified sediment (a carbonate crust or cap), exposed bedrock, or rubble. To obtain a broader understanding of the Atlantis Massif, we analyzed the distribution of these classes of seafloor. Over the Central Dome and Western Shoulder, we found most seafloor classes present in notable amounts, with many individual areas dominated by a particular type.

  6. Catalog of Apollo 17 rocks. Volume 1: Stations 2 and 3 (South Massif)

    1993-01-01

    The Catalog of Apollo 17 Rocks is a set of volumes that characterize each of 334 individually numbered rock samples (79 larger than 100 g) in the Apollo 17 collection, showing what each sample is and what is known about it. Unconsolidated regolith samples are not included. The catalog is intended to be used by both researchers requiring sample allocations and a broad audience interested in Apollo 17 rocks. The volumes are arranged geographically, with separate volumes for the South Massif and Light Mantle, the North Massif, and two volumes for the mare plains. Within each volume, the samples are arranged in numerical order, closely corresponding with the sample collection stations. The present volume, for the South Massif and Light Mantle, describes the 55 individual rock fragments collected at Stations two, two-A, three, and LRV-five. Some were chipped from boulders, others collected as individual rocks, some by raking, and a few by picking from the soil in the processing laboratory. Information on sample collection, petrography, chemistry, stable and radiogenic isotopes, rock surface characteristics, physical properties, and curatorial processing is summarized and referenced as far as it is known up to early 1992. The intention has been to be comprehensive: to include all published studies of any kind that provide information on the sample, as well as some unpublished information. References which are primarily bulk interpretations of existing data or mere lists of samples are not generally included. Foreign language journals were not scrutinized, but little data appears to have been published only in such journals. We have attempted to be consistent in format across all of the volumes, and have used a common reference list that appears in all volumes. Where possible, ages based on Sr and Ar isotopes have been recalculated using the 'new' decay constants recommended by Steiger and Jager; however, in many of the reproduced diagrams the ages correspond with the 'old' decay constants. In this volume, mg' or Mg' = atomic Mg/(Mg +Fe).

  7. Upper Mantle Structure Beneath the Bohemain Massif, Central Europe - Another Baby Plume?

    The BOHEMA project (BOhemian Massif HEterogeneity and Mantle Anisotropy) has brought together geophysicists from 10 institutions in the Czech Republic, Germany and France for a joint study of the structure and dynamics of the lithosphere and asthenosphere in the geodynamically active western part of the Bohemian Massif. An array of seismic stations covered a territory of approx. 270x150 km, with its long axis oriented perpendicularly to the strike of major tectonic units and to the Eger Rift. The network consisted of 61 permanent and 92 temporary stations operating between October 2001 and the end of 2003, with a core of recordings in 2002. Three-component short-period stations represent about 1/3 of the network, while broad-band stations constitute the remaining 2/3. Spacing of stations was generally less than 30 km, while in the central part of the array the station spacing was as small as 10-15 km, hence allowing for a lateral spatial resolution of approx. 20km in the upper mantle. The BOHEMA project aims at showing an existence or non-existence of a mantle plume beneath the Eger Rift, similarly to what has been established for several regions belonging to the European Cenozoic rift system (e.g., in Massif Central, Eifel), which may have a common source of volcanism in the mantle. Preliminary results of the P-velocity tomography indicate an asthenospheric upwelling beneath the region of Marianske Lazne. Besides isotropic velocity tomography, intensive research of body wave anisotropy is conducted. Evaluated parameters of seismic anisotropy are inverted jointly to retrieve a 3D self-consistent anisotropic model of the upper mantle, particularly of different mantle lithosphere domains. Both P- and S-wave anisotropy show two different orientations of the large-scale fabric in the Saxothuringian and the Moldanubian with a transitional type in the northern part of the Tepla-Barrandian.

    Pelitic and semipelitic anatectic granulites form one of the major lithological units in Kan Nack complex of the Kon Tum massif (in south-central Vietnam), which comprises HT metamorphic and magmatic rocks including granulites and charnockites is classically regarded as the older part of the Gondwana-derived Indosinia terrain. Metamorphic evolution study of pelitic granulite, the most abundant among granulites exposed in this massif, facilitates to understand that tectonic setting take place during the Indosinian time. The paragenetic assemblages, mineral chemistry, thermobarometry and P-T evolution path of pelitic-semipelitic granulites from Kon Tum massif has been studied in detail. Petrographic feature demonstrates that the pelitic granulite experienced prograde history, from pregranulitic conditions in the amphibolite facies up to the peak granulitic assemblages. Successive prograde reactions led to the temperature-climax giving rise to assemblages with cordierite-hercynite and cordierite-hercynite-K-feldspar. Then, as attested by the mineralogic association occurring in cordieritic coronas, these rocks have been affected by retrograde conditions coeval with a decrease of the pressure. Thermobarometic results show that the highest temperature obtained by ksp/pl thermometry is 850 °C and the highest pressure obtained by GASP (Garnet Alumino-Silicate Plagioclase) is 7.8 kbar. The obtained clockwise P-T evolution path involving heating decompression, then nearly isothermal decompression and nearly isobar cooling conditions shows that high temperature-low pressure metamorphism of the studied pelitic anatectic granulites of Kan Nack complex occurred possibly in extensional setting during the Indosinian orogeny of 260-240 Ma in age.

  9. Petrostructural evolution of ultramafic rocks of the Kalninsky chromite-bearing massif, Western Sayan

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Chernyshov, A. I.; Yurichev, A. N.

    2013-07-01

    The Kalininsky ultramafic massif is a fragment of lower structural zone of the Kurtushiba ophiolitic belt in the extreme northeastern part of the Western Sayan. The massif is composed largely of rocks making up the dunite-garzburgite banded complex. The northeastern part of the massif is composed mainly of dunite with linear NW-trending chromite-bearing zones, the localization of which is controlled by banding of the dunite-harzburgite complex. Harzburgite and dunite are characterized by inhomogeneous structures and textures caused by nonuniform ductile deformation, which is expressed as heterogeneous extinction, kink bands, and syntectonic and annealing recrystallization. The petrostructural patterns of olivine in harzburgite and dunite provide evidence for three stages of ductile deformation. At the first stage under deep mantle-crustal conditions, the ductile flow of ultramafic rocks developed mainly in a regime of axial compression, high temperature (>1000°C), and low strain rate (? < 10-6 s-1), which resulted in translational gliding along the (010)[100] and (100)[001] systems in olivine and enstatite, respectively, in combination with a subordinate role of syntectonic recrystallization. Consequently, the rocks acquired a medium-grained (mesogranular) microstructure. At the second stage, related to the thermal effect on ultramafics, the ductile flow developed under the settings of low strain rate (? < 10-6 s-1) and rising temperature (>1000°C). The translational gliding in olivine proceeded largely along (010)[100] and was accompanied by diffusion creep. As the temperature rose, ductile deformation gave way to secondary recrystallization of annealing, which facilitated the growth of olivine grains free of dislocations owing to absorption of individual grains oriented adversely relative to the compression axis and deformed grains saturated with dislocations. As a result, dunite and harzburgite with a coarse-grained porphyroblastic microstructure have been formed. The third stage of ductile flow was apparently related to their transport along deep-seated thrust faults under settings of intense shear deformations at a high temperature (˜1000°C) and strain rate (? >10-4 s-1). The ductile flow in olivine resulted in heterogeneous translational gliding along (010)[100] and accompanied by intense syntectonic recrystallization with the formation of a porphyroblastic microstructure. Chromite mineralization in dunite is controlled by internal banding. Intense ductile flow facilitated the metamorphic separation of linearbanded Cr-spinel segregations. Thus, the results of a petrostructural study show that ultramafic rocks of the Kalninsky massif, ascending to the upper lithosphere, underwent both axial and shear ductile deformations in the mantle and lower crust, and these deformations controlled chromite mineralization.

  10. Alpine thermal and structural evolution of the highest external crystalline massif: The Mont Blanc

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Leloup, P. H.; Arnaud, N.; Sobel, E. R.; Lacassin, R.

    2005-08-01

    The alpine structural evolution of the Mont Blanc, highest point of the Alps (4810 m), and of the surrounding area has been reexamined. The Mont Blanc and the Aiguilles Rouges external crystalline massifs are windows of Variscan basement within the Penninic and Helvetic nappes. New structural, 40Ar/39Ar, and fission track data combined with a compilation of earlier P-T estimates and geochronological data give constraints on the amount and timing of the Mont Blanc and Aiguilles Rouges massifs exhumation. Alpine exhumation of the Aiguilles Rouges was limited to the thickness of the overlying nappes (˜10 km), while rocks now outcropping in the Mont Blanc have been exhumed from 15 to 20 km depth. Uplift of the two massifs started ˜22 Myr ago, probably above an incipient thrust: the Alpine sole thrust. At ˜12 Ma, the NE-SW trending Mont Blanc shear zone (MBsz) initiated. It is a major steep reverse fault with a dextral component, whose existence has been overlooked by most authors, that brings the Mont Blanc above the Aiguilles Rouges. Total vertical throw on the MBsz is estimated to be between 4 and 8 km. Fission track data suggest that relative motion between the Aiguilles Rouges and the Mont Blanc stopped ˜4 Myr ago. Since that time, uplift of the Mont Blanc has mostly taken place along the Mont Blanc back thrust, a steep north dipping fault bounding the southern flank of the range. The "European roof" is located where the back thrust intersects the MBsz. Uplift of the Mont Blanc and Aiguilles Rouges occurred toward the end of motion on the Helvetic basal décollement (HBD) at the base of the Helvetic nappes but is coeval with the Jura thin-skinned belt. Northwestward thrusting and uplift of the external crystalline massifs above the Alpine sole thrust deformed the overlying Helvetic nappes and formed a backstop, inducing the formation of the Jura arc. In that part of the external Alps, ˜NW-SE shortening with minor dextral NE-SW motions appears to have been continuous from ˜22 Ma until at least ˜4 Ma but may be still active today. A sequential history of the alpine structural evolution of the units now outcropping NW of the Pennine thrust is proposed.

    2002-05-01

    The pressure-temperature-time trajectory and structural history of high-pressure rocks presently exposed in the Gran Paradiso massif provide constraints on the processes that caused their thermal evolution and exhumation. High-pressure metamorphism of the rocks is found to have culminated at temperatures around 525 °C and pressures of 12 to 14 kbar. After high-pressure metamorphism, the rocks cooled during initial decompression, while undergoing top-to-the-west shear on chlorite-bearing shear bands and larger scale shear zones. Biotite-bearing shear bands and larger shear zones related to top-to-the-east deformation affected the Gran Paradiso massif during reheating to temperatures of around 550 °C at 6 to 7 kbar. Further exhumation occurred at relatively high temperatures. A potentially viable explanation of the observed stage of reheating before final cooling and exhumation is breakoff of a subducting slab in the upper mantle, allowing advective heat transfer to the base of the crust.

    A volcanic ash layer, called MF1, was recently identified in Holocene sediments from the Gourgon and Molhiac peat bogs (Monts du Forez, French Massif Central). This ash layer consists of colorless shards with a heterogeneous trachytic to rhyolitic composition. The trace elements analyzed by Laser Ablation Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS) attest to a local origin. Radiocarbon dating of peat samples taken within and below the ash layer indicates the best age at 6339 ± 61 cal yr BP, i.e. an age contemporaneous with the volcanic activity of Montchal, Montcineyre and Pavin volcanoes from the Chaîne des Puys volcanic field. These volcanoes are characterized by basaltic and trachytic products, thus the rhyolitic composition of MF1 tephra suggests that it is likely originated from an unknown eruption. These results again confirm the interest of studying the distal volcanic ash fallouts in order to establish or specify records of past eruptions of volcanic fields. Identification of this new tephra layer also provides an additional tephrochronological marker for Eastern French Massif Central.

  14. Landscape evolution rates for a cyclic climate within an uplifting massif

    2009-04-01

    Quaternary rates of rocks exhumation and transport have been determined from the watersheds to the outlet of a 20-km-long, 2-km-high catchment within an uplifting massif of the Gobi-Altay mountain range (Mongolia). This massif is set in a structurally and chronologically well-studied restraining bend along the Bogd fault, characterized by semi-arid climate alternating long dry and short wet stages with a 100-kyrs periodicity. My approach combines geomorphic field-based investigation and 10Be concentration distribution analysis on bedrock, hillslope colluvia and alluvial sediments from active river or abandoned terraces and fans. The main geomorphic questions addressed in this work are: 1) What are the mechanisms and rates of pre-deposition processes, from sediment formation until deposit and abandonment of alluvial terraces and fans? In particular, I focus the analysis on bedrock exhumation, stocking of colluvia on the hillslopes, and their remobilization and transport within the drainage network. Characteristic times of these processes are poorly known up to date, although they have dramatic importance in landscape evolution modeling. 2) What is the impact of post-deposition processes in the evolution of alluvial surfaces morphology? Analyzing terraces of different ages and at different settings along the river, I compare their relative denudation rates derived from changes in topographic slope and local lowering rate due to matrix remobilization by wind deflation and runoff.

    In the Mont Blanc Helvetic massif, granites record mesoscale Alpine structures, which include joints, veins, cataclastic to mylonitic shear zones and foliated granites. A detailed structural analysis indicates that brittle deformation predates plastic strain. Joints never pass through, and veins are offset by, cataclastic shear zones and mylonites. The mylonites progressively develop by plastic reactivation of cataclastic shear zones during

Diopside-phlogopite, diopside-biotite-augite-calcic-amphibole, are the main ferro-magnesian paragenesis in the syenitic rocks. Syenitic and granitic rocks are co-magmatic and related to an ultrapotassic, silica-saturated magmatism. Their trace element patterns indicate a probable mantle source modified by previous, subduction-related metasomatism. The ultrapotassic granites of this massif were produced by fractional crystallization of syenitic magmas, and may be considered as a particular group of hypersolvus and subsolvus A-type granites. Based upon textural, structural and geochemical data most of the syenitic rocks, particularly the fine-grained types, are considered as crystallized liquids, in spite of the abundance of cumulatic layers, schlieren, and compositional banding. Most of the studied samples are metaluminous, with K2O/Na2O ratios higher than 2. The ultrapotassic syenitic and lamprophyric rocks in the Piquiri massif are interpreted to have been produced from enriched mantle sources, OIB-type, like most of the post-collisional shoshonitic, sodic alkaline and high-K tholeiitic magmatism in southernmost Brazil. The source of the ultrapotassic and lamprophyric magmas is probably the same veined mantle, with abundant phlogopite + apatite + amphibole that reflects a previous subduction-related metasomatism.

    High-temperature (HT), Group A eclogites from three localities in the Moldanubian Zone of the Bohemian Massif are interpreted to have formed in the mantle and to have been transported into the crust by their enclosing garnet peridotites during Variscan orogenesis. Garnet and omphacite are compositionally zoned and contain homogeneous cores and retrograde rims. Cores of minerals yield minimum temperatures and

    Massification is an undeniable phenomenon in the higher education arena. However, there have been questions raised regarding the extent to which a mass system really corresponds to an effective democratisation not only of access, but also of success. With regards to access, this article intends, through a brief analysis of the expansion of higher…

  7. Seismic imaging of the western Iberian crust using ambient noise: Boundaries and internal structure of the Iberian Massif

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    The Iberian Massif one of the major structural units of the Iberian Peninsula is composed by rocks with ages ranging from the Upper Precambrian to Upper Carboniferous. The massif outcrops in Central and Western Iberia and the location of its limits, as well as the relationship between its shallow and deeper structures are still a matter of debate. Several problems like source-receiver geometry, irregular seismicity distribution or, for some methods, low seismicity occurrence did not allow obtaining high-resolution models of Iberian structure using traditional imaging methods. Seismic interferometry/ambient noise surface-waves tomography allows imaging regions with a resolution that mainly depends on the seismic network coverage. This study aims to map the boundaries of the Iberian Massif particularly those that are covered or in contact with recent (Cenozoic) and older (Mesozoic) basins. Whenever possible, we intend to characterize second-order structures inside the Massif. We present new Rayleigh-wave dispersion maps of the western Iberian Peninsula for periods between 8 and 30 seconds, obtained from correlations of seismic ambient noise, following the recent increase in seismic broadband network density in Portugal and Spain. Group velocities have been computed for each station pair using the empirical Green's functions generated by cross-correlating one-day-length seismic ambient-noise records. The resulting high-path density allows us to obtain lateral variations of the group velocities as a function of period in cells of 0.5° x 0.5° with an unprecedented resolution. As a result we were able to address some of the unknowns regarding the lithospheric structure beneath SW Iberia. The dispersion maps allow the imaging of the major structural units, namely the Iberian Massif, and the Lusitanian and Algarve Meso-Cenozoic basins. The Cadiz Gulf/Gibraltar Strait area corresponds to a strong low-velocity anomaly, which can be followed to the largest period inverted, although slightly shifted to the east at longer periods. Within the Iberian Massif, second-order perturbations in the group velocities are consistent with the transitions between tectonic units composing the massif.

  8. A Paleozoic anorthosite massif related to rutile-bearing ilmenite ore deposits, south of the Polochic fault, Chiapas Massif Complex, Mexico

    The Chiapas Massif Complex in the southern Maya terrane is mostly composed of late Permian igneous and meta-igneous rocks. Within this complex in southern Mexico and in the adjacent San Marcos Department of Guatemala, south of the Polochic fault, several small outcrops (~10 km2) of a Phanerozoic andesine anorthosite massif were found following an E-W trend similar to the Polochic-Motagua Fault System. Such anorthosites are related to rutile-bearing ilmenite ore deposits and hornblendite-amphibolite bands (0.1-3 meters thick). The anorthosites show recrystallization and metamorphic retrogression (rutile with titanite rims), but no relicts of high-grade metamorphic minerals such as pyroxene or garnet have been found. In Acacoyagua, Chiapas, anorthosites are spatially related to oxide-apatite rich mafic rocks; in contrast, further to the west in Motozintla, they are related to monzonites. Zircons from these monzonites yield a Permian U-Pb age (271.2×1.4 Ma) by LA-MC-ICPMS. Primary mineral assemblage of the anorthosites include mostly medium to fine-grained plagioclase (>90%) with rutile and apatite as accessory minerals, occasionally with very low amounts of quartz. Massive Fe-Ti oxide lenses up to tens of meters in length and few meters thick are an ubiquitous constituent of these anorthosites and their mineralogy include ilmenite (with exsolution lamellae of Ti-magnetite), rutile, magnetite, clinochlore, ×spinel, ×apatite, ×zircon and srilankite (Ti2ZrO6, first finding of this phase in Mexico). Rutile occurs within the massive ilmenite in two morphological types: (1) fine-grained (5-40 ?m) rutile along ilmenite grain boundaries or fractures, and (2) coarse-grained rutile (<5 mm) as discrete grains, whereas magnetite and srilankite only appear as small grains along ilmenite boundaries. Zircon is present as discontinuously aligned small grains (10-40 ?m) forming rims around many rutile and ilmenite grains. Attempts to date zircon rims by U-Pb using LA-MC-ICPMS yielded unreliable results due to extremely low U concentrations (<4 ppm). Geochemical analyses revealed that the Chiapanecan anorthosites contain by average ~58% SiO2, ~25% Al2O3, ~7% CaO, ~6% Na2O, >1000 ppm Sr, and positive europium anomalies. The anorthosites probably represent the exhumed roots of a deep-seated and differentiated mafic body of late Permian age as part of the Chiapas batholith, apparently precluding major displacements across the Polochic fault.

  16. Seafloor acoustic imagery surrounding the Rainbow massif, Mid-Atlantic Ridge 36°N

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Dunn, R. A.; Canales, J.; Sohn, R. A.; Kakone, E.

    2013-12-01

    The MARINER (Mid-Atlantic Ridge INtegrated Experiments at Rainbow) seismic and geophysical mapping experiment was carried out in April-May 2013 and was designed to examine the relationship between tectonic rifting, heat/melt supply, and oceanic core complex formation at a non-transform offset (NTO) of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge (36°N) the site of the ultramafic-hosted Rainbow hydrothermal system. One component of this experiment was dense acoustic multibeam backscatter and bathymetry data collection. We present acoustic imagery of the seafloor extending across two segments of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge separated by the Rainbow NTO massif. The acoustic imagery provides a broad view of the character of the ridge system, emphasizing the strong variability of seafloor morphology, tectonics, and lava emplacement and reveals the general tectono-magmatic setting of the Rainbow massif. The amplitude data were collected via a hull-mounted multi-beam sonar system (Kongsberg EM-122) aboard the R/V Marcus G. Langseth. The multi-fold, multi-directional coverage of the amplitude data allows for a compilation of all data into a common grid, as is usually done for depth data. Corrections for amplitude loss and grazing angle, in combination with multiple data coverage averages out noisy data, local slope dependence, and removes along-track artifacts that tend to be endemic to sonar images. The benefit is a complete sonar image for the area that can be examined with little distortion due to artifacts, and whose features can be interpreted as being principally derived from the intrinsic reflectivity of the seafloor rather than from look-direction and local seafloor slope. The main features of the image include: (1) newer seafloor within the axial valleys with some discernible individual lava flows; (2) large and small fault scarps and possible fissure systems; (3) sediment-filled basins; (4) terrains composed nearly entirely of small volcanic cones; (5) volcanic ridges; (6) regions of shallow topography exhibiting low sedimentation. The Rainbow massif itself consists of a mixture of high and low backscatter amplitudes, reflective of a complex tectonic and sedimentation history.

    The front of the Aar Massif (Swiss Central Alps) is characterized by Paleozoic basement rocks exposed at altitudes of more than 4600m above sea level, followed by a steeply north dipping Mesozoic sedimentary cover and overlying Helvetic nappes. The sediments turn into subhorizontal orientations just few kilometers to the N, where the top of the basement is situated at depths of about 7000m below sea level. What is the origin of this vertical jump of about 12000m of the basement rocks over such short horizontal distances? Recent structural investigations at the Basement-Cover contact indicate a complex structural evolution involving reactivation of extensional faults and inversion of half-grabens during early compressional stages. In the internal parts of the Aar Massif a general steepening of the faults resulted with progressive compression. In the northern frontal part, however, a new spaced cleavage evolved, which is dipping with 20-30° to the SE. In places, the new cleavage in the basement rocks is intense and pervasive and correlates with a steepening of the basement-cover contact and its offsets of several tens to hundreds of meters. Hence strain is strongly partitioned in a large number of high strain zones, which cover a cumulative thickness of at least 2000m, eventually even much more considering subsurface continuation. The Mesozoic sediments affected by this large-scale deformation zone are either intensely ductile folded in the case of limestones or faulted and imbricated in the case of dolomites. These differences in deformation style result from the deformation conditions of about < 250-300°C, where calcite still deforms in a ductile manner, while dolomite and crystalline basement preferentially undergo brittle deformation in combination of dissolution-precipitation processes. In a large-scale point of view, we suggest that the high strain domain in the crystalline basement in fact represents a crustal-scale several kilometers wide shear zone, which passively deforms the sedimentary cover rocks into an embryonic recumbent fold-type structure of several kilometers size. In this sense, the frontal part of the Aar massif represents a thick-skinned ramp anticline structure formed by out of sequence thrusting during a very late stage of Alpine orogeny. The latter point is corroborated by the offset of zircon fission track ages, which yield about 12 Ma suggesting latest activity along the crustal ramp surely later than that time under preferentially brittle to semi-brittle deformation conditions (< 220°C).

    Extension of continental lithosphere occurs in continental rifts, such as the East African, Baikal and Rio Grande rifts, and active convergent continental margins, such as in the Himalayas and the Alps. While the mechanisms of crustal thinning are increasingly understood, the processes governing the thinning of the lithospheric subcontinental mantle still remain barely constrained. Detailed structural and petrological mapping associated with a thorough microstructural study in the Beni Bousera orogenic peridotite (Rif Belt, N Morocco) allows constraining the tectono-metamorphic evolution produced by exhumation of the subcontinental lithospheric mantle in a lithospheric-scale shear zone. The Beni Bousera massif is composed by four tectono-metamorphic domains showing consistent kinematics, marked by a pervasive shallowly-dipping foliation bearing a NW-SE stretching lineation, which progressively rotates towards a N20-N30 trend in the NE, lowermost part of the massif. From top to bottom: garnet-spinel mylonites, Ariègite subfacies fine-grained porphyroclastic spinel peridotites, Ariègite-Seiland subfacies porphyroclastic- and Seiland subfacies coarse-porphyroclastic to coarse-granular spinel peridotites. Microstructures and crystal preferred orientations (CPO) in the four domains are consistent with deformation by dominant dislocation creep, but the continuous increase in average olivine grain size and decrease in the recrystallized volume fraction indicate decreasing work rates from top to bottom. The microstructures are consistent with the variation in synkinematic pressure and temperature conditions, which range from 900°C-2.0 GPa in grt-sp mylonites and 1150°C-1.8 GPa in the Seiland domain. The diffuse compositional layering as well as the microstructures and CPO in the Seiland domain suggest deformation in presence of melt. Gravitational instabilities due to local melt accumulation may account for the small areas bearing a vertical lineation in this domain. To account for the consistent kinematics and for the large temperature gradient (ca. 100degC/km) preserved in Beni Bousera, we propose that the massif records the functioning of a lithospheric mantle transtensional shear zone, arrested at a depth of 60 km. In this scenario, partial melting in the Ariègite-Seiland and Seiland domains results from decompression and does not require an exotic heat source.

  19. Geothermobarometry of basaltic glasses from the Tamu Massif, Shatsky Rise oceanic plateau

    We present the results of a petrological study of core samples from Tamu Massif (Site U1347), recovered during the Shatsky Rise Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP) Expedition 324. The basaltic glasses from Site U1347 are evolved tholeiitic basalts containing 5.2-6.8 wt% MgO, and are principally located within the compositional field of mid-ocean ridge basalts (MORBs) but they have systematically higher FeO, lower Al2O3, SiO2, and Na2O concentrations, and the CaO/Al2O3 ratios are among the highest known for MORBs. In this sense, glasses from Site U1347 more closely resemble basaltic magmas from the Ontong Java Plateau (OJP), although they still have lower SiO2 concentrations. In contrast to MORB and similar to OJP, our fractionation corrected values of Na2O and CaO/Al2O3 indicate more than 20% of partial melting of the mantle during the generation of the parental magmas of Tamu Massif. The water contents in the glasses, determined by midinfrared Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, are MORB-like, and vary between 0.18 and 0.6 wt% H2O. The calculated pressure (P)-temperature (T) conditions at which the natural glasses represent cotectic olivine-plagioclase-clinopyroxene compositions range from 0.1 to 240 MPa and 1100 to 1150°C reflecting magma storage at shallow depth. The variation of the glass compositions and the modeled P-T conditions in correlation with the relative ages indicate that there were at least two different magmatic cycles characterized by variations in eruptive styles (massive flows or pillow lavas), chemical compositions, volatile contents, and preeruptive P-T conditions. Each magmatic cycle represents the progressive differentiation in course of polybaric crystallization after the injection of a more primitive magma batch. Magma crystallization and eruption episodes are followed by magmatic inactivity reflected in the core sequence by a sedimentary layer. Our data for Tamu Massif demonstrate that, similar to Ontong Java ocean Plateau, the crystallization beneath Shatsky Rise occurs at different crustal levels.

  20. The seismotectonic significance of the 2008-2010 seismic swarm in the Brabant Massif (Belgium)

    Structural interpretations of the tectonic grain of orogenic mountain belts have often been based on the study of potential field data. The steep architecture of mountain belts can be highlighted by the inclination of the magnetic field and by the persistence of aeromagnetic lineaments with depth. With respect to seismology, matched filtering has proven to be very useful for linking seismicity with deep-seated tectonic structures by separating short-wavelength anomalies, that originate from shallow depths, from long-wavelength anomalies that generally originate at greater depths. Between 2008 and 2010 more than 300 low-magnitude earthquakes occurred 20 km SE of Brussels (Belgium). Thanks to a locally deployed temporary seismic network covering the epicentral area, very small events could be detected (magnitude variation between ML -0.7 and ML 3.2). The spatial distribution of the hypocenter locations show a dense spatial cluster displaying a narrow, 1.5-km long, NW-SE oriented fault zone at a depth range between 5 and 7 km, located in the Cambrian basement rocks of the Lower Palaeozoic Anglo-Brabant Massif. Its NW-SE orientation is in agreement with the structural grain in this part of the Brabant Massif. In order to find a relevant tectonic structure that could correspond to the 2008-2010 seismic swarm, we present a full seismotectonic analysis linking local geology to the seismic swarm. A systematic filtering approach was applied in which the magnetic field was carefully bandpass filtered to generate different aeromagnetic maps that highlight sources near the hypocenter depths. Filtering demonstrates that the structure responsible for the seismic swarm is limited in length as it is bordered at both ends by magnetic lineaments with different orientations than the seismic swarm. These observations explain the rather limited spatial distribution of the swarm, both in a vertical and horizontal direction. Although few of the largest historical seismic events in Belgium occurred within the borders of the Brabant Massif, the limited fault length thus suggests that, given its favourable orientation to reactivation in the current stress configuration, it potentially could result in a reduced seismic hazard for this region.

  1. The geology of Thaumasia-northeast quadrant

    1984-01-01

    The northeastern section of Thaumasia is located in the heavily cratered southern highlands of Mars between 30 S and 47.5 S and 67.5 W and 90 W. To the northwest lies the Tharis bulge and to the southeast is the Argyre Basin. Previous mapping in Thaumasia included a geologic map of the entire guadrangel by McGill (1978) at a 1:5,000,000 scale and a map of lava flows in the northwest quadrant by Scott and Tanaka (1981). Most investigations concentrated west of 90 W long. in conjunction with the Tharis volcanics. This investigation was designed to examine the overall geology of this section of Thaumasia. After distinguishing various geomorphical units, a geologic map was made at a scale of 1:2,000,000. Lastly, a general sequence of events was developed for the area. Mapping was done from individual low, medium, and high resolution images from the Viking missions, as well as using a 1:2,000,000 scale photo mosaic of the northeast quadrant of Thaumasia. Amount of cratering and faulting, superposition, differences in morphology, and albedo were used to separate out geomorphologically distinct units.

    This panorama of the region to the northeast of the lander was constructed to support the Sojourner Rover Team's plans to conduct an 'autonomous traverse' to explore the terrain away from the lander after science objectives in the lander vicinity had been met. The large, relatively bright surface in the foreground, about 10 meters (33 feet) from the spacecraft, in this scene is 'Baker's Bench.' The large, elongated rock left of center in the middle distance is 'Zaphod.'

    This anaglyph view was produced by combining the left and right eye mosaics (above) by assigning the left eye view to the red color plane and the right eye view to the green and blue color planes (cyan), to produce a stereo anaglyph mosaic. This mosaic can be viewed in 3-D on your computer monitor or in color print form by wearing red-blue 3-D glasses.

    Massif, the southernmost plateau of Shatsky Rise, is recently reported as the largest single volcano known on Earth. This work seeks to understand the type of volcanism necessary to form such an anomalously large single volcano by integrating core and high-resolution wireline logging data. In particular, resistivity imagery obtained by the Formation MicroScanner, in Integrated Ocean Drilling Program Hole U1347A, located on the eastern flank of Tamu Massif, was used to construct a logging-based volcanostratigraphy. This model revealed two different volcanic stages formed Tamu Massif: (i) the core part of the massif's basaltic basement was formed by a "construction phase" of volcanism with cyclic eruption events from a steady state magma supply and (ii) the very topmost basaltic section was formed by a "depositional phase" of volcanism during which long-traveling lava flows were deposited from a distant eruption center.

  4. Diamonds Discovered in Five Peridotite Massifs Along the Yarlung-Zangbo Suture in South Tibet: Tectonic Implications

    Many ophiolitic peridotite massifs occur along the more than 1500-km-long Yarlung-Zangbo suture in south Tibet, which marks the boundary between the Indian and Eurasian plates after closure of Neo-Tethys at about 55 Ma. Some of the massifs are very large, e.g., the Xigaze massif (ca. 700 km2) in the middle segment, and the Purang (ca. 600 km2) and Dongbo (ca. 400 km2) massifs in the western segment of the suture. In-situ diamonds and moissanite, along with many unusual, highly reduced minerals, such as native Fe, Cr, Ni and metal alloys have been previously reported from chromitites and peridotites of the Luobusa ophiolitic massif in the eastern segment of the suture. Coesite pseudomorphing stishovite from the Luobusa chromitite suggests depths of formation >300 km. Here we present the first report of diamonds and other unusual minerals in four other peridotite bodies along the Yarlung-Zangbo suture, namely from east to west, the Xigaze, Dangqiong, Purang and Dongbo massifs. These massifs consist mainly of harzburgite, lherzolite and dunite, probably of MOR type, that were modified in a SSZ environment. Several tens of diamonds and some unusual minerals such as moissanite were recovered by standard mineral separation techniques from individual samples ranging from 300 to 600 kg in weight. The diamonds are yellowish-green in color, about 0.1-0.3 mm in size, and have octahedral and cone-like forms. These diamonds are similar to those found in the Luobusa massif, and commonly contain inclusions of Ni-Mn-Co alloys, a feature that distinguishes them from kimberlitic and metamorphic diamonds. Textural evidence and Ca-K-Cl fluid inclusions indicate that they grew from C-rich fluids. Fifty analyses of diamonds from the Yarlung-Zangbo suture yielded ?13CPDB values ranging from -18.3 % to -28.7%, with an average of -24.6%. There are no statistical differences in the isotopic composition among diamonds from the different localities or among those occurring in chromitite or harzburgite. The fluids from which the diamonds crystallized must have been derived from a carbon source distinctly different from that of typical kimberlitic diamonds, most of which have ?13CPDB values of -1% to -8%. The widespread occurrence of UHP minerals in the Yarlung-Zangbo ophiolites demonstrates that the Luobusa ophiolite is not a unique diamond-bearing massif, and that there exists a major new occurrence of diamonds in the oceanic mantle, unrelated to kimberlites and UHP metamorphism. Previous work suggests that both the diamonds and chromitites of Luobusa crystallized in the diamond stability field at depths greater than ~150 km, possibly deeper than 300 km, thus raising questions regarding the current models for the formation of ophiolites and podiform chromitites. It is possible that the diamonds formed from C-rich fluids with highly reduced phases and low ?13CPDB values derived from the deep mantle.

  5. The Chineysky layered massif (Siberia, Russia) and Upper Zone of the Bushveld Complex: resemblance and difference features

    Layered intrusions represent a small part of a large group of continental basic-ultrabasic complexes. They attract geologists' attention due to their unusual magmatic structures and associated PGE, Cr and V deposits. The outstanding example of this phenomenon is the Bushveld Complex in South Africa. The largest layered intrusion in Russia is the Chineysky massif (Transbaikalia, Siberia). It is characterized by excellent layering and accompanying titanomagnetite and sulfide mineralization. It hosts Russia's largest deposits of Fe-Ti-V ores which are also among the world's largest [1]. Origin of such huge metal concentrations in the crust is unsettled problem. Therefore the ore conditions' determination from different intrusions is very actually. We compared the structure, rock and parental magmas compositions for two plutons mentioned above. The Chineysky massif consists of gabbronorites and anorthozites and the petrography of the rocks resembles that of the Upper Zone of the Bushveld [3]. Vanadium ores from these two intrusions are very similar: they are represented by massive and disseminated varieties. However, the small size of Chineysky massiv gives an opportunity to observe the number of petrological processes in a frame of one area, as opposed to Bushveld, where this is impossible. The separateness of the bodies and the scarcity of geochemical data on their rocks precluded the development of a comprehensive model for the evolution of magmatism in this part of the Kodar- Udokan trough. So one of the tasks of our research was to study the spatial and genetic relations between the ultrabasite-basite intrusive bodies and their possible grouping within a single magmatic system, with the Chineysky massif being its part. The second tasks was to determine the phase characteristics of the parental magma of the massif . An important aspect of this study was the examination of the inner structure of the Chineysky massiv. The main features of the structure are following: 1) consecutive introduction of magmas of different composition; 2) stratification of different nature; 3) differently grade rhythmicity. The Chineysky massif is thought to have been produced by successive emplacement of magmas, which formed four rock groups. These are the pyroxenite of the first group, titanomagnetite gabbronorites and leucogabbro of the second group, gabbronorites of the third group, and lamprophyres of the fourth group The trace-element patterns of various rocks and the results of simulations by the COMAGMAT-3.5 computer program led us to believe that all four rock groups of the massif were generated by the successive emplacements of several portions of the initial magma, which was a complicatedly differentiated suspension of olivine, plagioclase, and magnetite crystals in ferroabsaltic melt at a temperature of approximately 1130°?. The gravitational separation of these phases in the melt before its emplacement into the chamber and during the subsequent emplacement of various portions of the initial magma into the modern chamber predetermined the heterogeneity of the massif (its block structure). As a result, the bulk of the Chineysky massif is composed of compositionally principally different rocks of the second and third groups, with the predominance of intratelluric plagioclase and magnetite crystals in the former case (gabbronorite and leucogabbro series in the western and southeastern blocks) and orthopyroxene in the latter one (norite series, central block). The rocks of the third group were generated later. The crystallization sequences of minerals modeled for the Chineysky massif can be classed into two major types [2]: (a) "high-Al", which is typical of the "leucogabbro" compositions and characterized by the occurrence of a magnetite-plagioclase cotectic, and (b) "high-Mg", which is typical of the noriteseries and is characterized by the early appearance of olivine on the liquidus or the concurrent crystallization of this mineral with magnetite or plagioclase. It is worth mentioning the early app

    A three-point Sm-Nd isotope isochron on fluorite from the very large Montroc fluorite vein deposit (southern Massif Central, France) defines an age of 111??13 Ma. Initial ??Nd of -8.6 and initial 87Sr/86Sr of ???0.71245 suggest an upper crustal source of the hydrothermal system, in agreement with earlier work on fluid inclusions which indicated a basinal brine origin. The mid-Cretaceous age of ???111 Ma suggests the Albian/Aptian transition as the most likely period for large-scale fluid circulation during a regional extensional tectonic event, related to the opening of the North Atlantic ocean. ??

    A tonalitic sill has been examined at the Variscan transpressive boundary of the Lugian and Silesian plates at the NE margin of the Bohemian Massif. A structural, petrological and geochronological study reveals that it was emplaced syn-tectonically with major ductile shearing in lower crustal rocks. Magmatic and pre-rheological critical melt percentage (RCMP) fabrics are concordant with the hanging wall structures but discordant with those of the footwall. The AMS study shows the predominance of flattening strain at the margins and plane strain fabrics in the core. Numerical modelling of AMS fabrics is in good agreement with the hypothesis of magma flow and deformation in oblique transpression. A tectonic model was developed explaining emplacement and syn-tectonic deformation of progressively cooled tonalitic intrusion.

  8. Physical-Chemical Factors Affecting the Low Quality of Natural Water in the Khibiny Massif

    One peculiarity of the Khibiny Massif is its spatial location. Rising over 1000 m above the surrounding hilly land and thus obstructing the passage of air masses, it promotes condensation and accumulation of surface and underground water. Annual precipitation here amounts to 600-700 mm in the valleys and up to 1600 mm on mountainous plateaus. Using this water for drinking and household purposes is problematic due to excess Al and F concentrations and high pH values. Now it is known that in its profile, the Massif is represented by three hydrogeological subzones: the upper (aerated), medium and lower ones. The upper subzone spreads throughout the Massif and is affected by the local drainage network and climatic conditions. The medium subzone is permanently saturated with underground water flowing horizontally to sites of discharge at the level of local river valleys and lakes. The fissure-vein water in the lower subzone is confined to tectonic fractures and faults in the so far underexplored, deeper parts of the Massif. Being abundant, this water ascends under high pressure. At places, water has been observed spurting from as deep as 700 m, and even 960 m. In the latter case, the temperature of ascending water was higher than 18 centigrade (Hydrogeology of the USSR, V. 27, 1971). This work was undertaken to reveal the nature of the low quality of water in the Khibiny by using physical-chemical modeling (software package Selector, Chudnenko, 2010). Processes of surface and underground water formation in the Khibiny were examined within a physical-chemical model (PCM) of the "water-rock-atmosphere-hydrogen" system. In a multi-vessel model used, each vessel represented a geochemical level of the process interpreted as spatiotemporal data - ? (Karpov, 1981). The flow reactor consisted of 4 tanks. In the first tank, water of the Kuniok River (1000 L) interacted with atmosphere and an organic substance. The resulting solution proceeded to tanks 2-4 containing with underlying rocks (100g of each) to interact with them following the preset process level, the water-rock ratio being ? = 1.0; 0.8; 0.6; 0.2 at temperatures (5, 5, 3, 3 centigrade) and pressures (1, 2, 2, 3 bar), respectively. The model had been reliably verified in the aeration zone monitored in the course of the years 2001 and 2010. Analysis of the chemical composition of deeper water-bearing strata has required to increase the intensity of the water-rock interactions in tank 3 (from 0.2 to 0) and tank 4 (from 0 to -0.2) and simultaneously increase the temperature: (5, 10, 10 centigrade) in the third and (10, 18, 25 centigrade) in the fourth. At the value of ?= -0.2 in the temperature range of 18-25 centigrade, the component contents in tank 4 were observed to change (mg/l): Al (8.10-4 -1.10-3), HCO3- (67-69), Na (25-26,9), Cl (6-6,38), F(0.522-0.882) giving rise to new mineral phases, which agreed with the monitoring data of 1996-1997. The pH values in this case were close to 9. Our findings suggest that factors contributing to changing redox conditions, responsible for the formation of soda and abrupt increment of HCO3-, fluorine and aluminum concentrations, are time and temperature.

  9. Oxidation state of the lithospheric mantle beneath the Massif Central,France

    The Tertiary and Quaternary volcanism of the French Massif Central sampled the underlying subcontinental lithospheric mantle (SCLM) in the form of xenoliths over a wide geographic area of ~20.000km2. Such an extensive distribution of xenoliths provides an unique opportunity to investigate regional variations in mantle structure and composition. On the basis of textural and geochemical differences, Lenoir et al. (2000) and later Downes et al. (2003) identified two distinct domains in the SCLM lying north and south of latitude 45° 30' N, respectively. The northern domain is relatively refractory, but has experienced pervasive enrichment of LREE. The southern domain is generally more fertile, exhibiting depletion in LREE. A metasomatic overprint has developed to variable extents in many xenolith suites. The different histories of these two juxtaposed blocks of SCLM should also be reflected in their oxidation state, with local variations also to be expected due to metasomatic interactions. For example, if carbonate-melt metasomatism played a role in the LREE enrichment of the northern domain (Lenoir et al. 2000; Downes et al. 2003), then such mantle should be relatively oxidised. Since surprisingly little redox data are currently available, we are undertaking a study to determine the oxidation state of the SCLM beneath the Massif Central over the largest geographical area possible. All xenoliths investigated are spinel peridotites, mostly with protogranular textures (although some samples are porphyroclastic or equigranular). Most samples are nominally anhydrous although minor amphibole is present in some xenolith suites. Major element compositions of the individual minerals were determined by microprobe. Two-pyroxene temperatures (BKN) range from 750° to ~1200° C. Ferric iron contents of spinel were determined by Mössbauer spectroscopy and gave a range of Fe3+/ Fetot from 0.191 to 0.418, with a conservative uncertainty of ±0.02. These data were used to calculate oxygen fugacity (fO2) of the peridotites using the Nell-Wood calibration for the equilibrium between olivine, orthopyroxene and spinel (Wood et al. 1990) and are referenced to the fayalite-magnetite-quartz (FMQ) redox buffer. Preliminary results yield ?log(fO2) values between FMQ-0.17 and FMQ+1.65 log units. In this fO2 range propagated uncertainties are on the order of 0.1 log units. Although there is some overlap, localities from the northern block tend to record higher values (>FMW+0.9). In the south, fO2values from a number of localities cluster around FMQ+0.3 to FMQ+0.6, with higher values associated with the occurrence of amphibole in the xenoliths. The higher values (>FMQ+1) testify to localised metasomatic interaction in the SCLM, possibly related to melt migration during earlier phases of magmatic activity in the region. This hypothesis is also consistent with lower fO2 values observed at one locality (Fraisse) on the northern block that is significantly older and thus sampled the mantle prior to the subsequent metasomatic activity in this block of SCLM.

    2006-03-01

    Detailed images of the lithosphere beneath the western Bohemian Massif were obtained by analysis of more than 8500 P receiver functions. At the intersection of Regensburg-Leipzig-Rostock zone and Eger Rift, crustal thickness decreases to 26 km from approx. 31 km in the surroundings. The receiver functions display a positive phase at about 6 s delay time and a strong negative phase at 7 to 8 s, which coincides with an area of Moho updoming, CO2 mantle-derived degassing and earthquake swarm activity. These phases can be modeled by a velocity increase at 50 km and a velocity decrease at 65 km depth. The velocity decrease, observed over an area of 5300 km2, gives evidence for local asthenospheric updoming and/or a confined body of partial melt, which might be the cause for high CO2 mantle fluid flow and earthquake swarm activity in this recently nonvolcanic, intracontinental rift area.

    Mineral compositions of residual and cumulate rocks from the Lewis Hills massif of the Bay of Islands ophiolite complex are reported and interpreted in the context of magnetic processes involved in the geochemical evolution of spatially associated diabase dikes. The mineral compositions reflect greater degrees of partial melting than most abyssal peridotites do and appear to represent the most depleted end of abyssal peridotite compositions. Subsolidus equilibration between Cr-Al spinal and olivine generally has occurred at temperatures of 700 to 900 C. The spinel variations agree with the overall fractionation of basaltic magmas producing spinels with progressively lower Cr numbers. The compositions of clinopyroxenes suggest that the fractionation of two different magma series produced the various cumulate rocks.

    The mineralogical-petrographic, petrochemical, and geochemical characteristics of the trondhjemite-granodiorite intrusions widespread among the volcanoterrigenous rocks of the eastern part of the Voronezh crystalline massif are studied. The rocks are characterized by cotectic quartz-plagioclase differentiation and differentiated (La/Yb = 31) REE pattern and are enriched in LILE with a decrease in the K/Rb and Zr/Hf ratios and an increase in the Th/U ratio by 1.5-2 times relative to subduction trondhjemites and their volcanic analogs from the modern and young island arcs. These data allow us to conclude that generation of the trondhjemite magma is a result of melting of the rocks of the continental crust during collision. The concordant (SHRIMP) age of trondhjemites is 2047 ± 11 Ma, and the age of zircon cores probably entrapped from the host rocks by the trondhjemitic melt is 2172 ± 17 Ma.

    Structural analyses in the northeastern segment of the North Patagonian Massif (southern Argentina) show that the simply deformed and metamorphosed phyllitic succession of the Late Precambrian-Cambrian El Jagüelito Formation has been intruded by Ordovician granitoids that are not ductilely deformed. The unconformable cover of the Silurian-Lower Devonian Sierra Grande Formation suggests that the Early Paleozoic Famatinian deformation of western Argentina did not affect this sector of the North Patagonian Massif. The ˜NW-SE compression of this succession led to the formation of open fold structures combined with high-angle reverse and sinistral strike-slip faults. Deformation interfered with the cooling of the Laguna Medina granitoids and is assigned here to the Late Paleozoic interval (probably Permian). A comparable mechanism is assumed for the metamorphism in the Sierras Australes fold-and-thrust belt north of Patagonia. The ˜NE-SW compression in the area west of Mina Gonzalito led to the formation of mylonites in the Peñas Blancas and La Laguna granites. It is suggested that ductile deformation is Permian in age and took place along important shear horizons. On a regional scale, it is comparable to that of the Cerro de Los Viejos granite (La Pampa Province) and the Sierras Australes fold-and-thrust belt (Buenos Aires Province) north of the inferred suture between Patagonia and Gondwana South America. This suggests that, on both sides of the boundary, intense compression took place during the same Gondwanide period and that extra-Andean Patagonia collided with Gondwana South America. The deformation in the Sierra Grande area is interpreted as a second-stage event during the Gondwanide deformational and magmatic history.

    The Bohemian Massif in Upper Austria exposes low pressure granulite facies rocks which belong to the Moldanubian Unit and were metamorphosed during the last stage of the Variscan orogeny. The investigated Lichtenberg (northwest of Linz) and Sauwald (south of the river Danube) zones comprise mainly paragneisses. However, most of these rocks underwent high degrees of melting forming meta- and diatexites ("Perlgneise"). Al-rich metapelites, which are suitable for precise PT and PT-path determinations, can be found in various localities throughout the whole unit. In this study samples from the cliffs along the Danube valley between Linz and Wilhering and from Werndorf (close to Schärding) were sampled and investigated petrographically in detail. Since garnets are rare and usually consumed by cordierite, a sample with unusual large garnets was of special interest. A chemical zoning profile across the diameter of the c. 1cm large garnet showed an elevated Ca-plateau (Xgrs=0.06) in the core which decreased discontinuously towards the rim to Xgrs=0.02. Almandine, pyrope and spessartine components do not show any pronounced zoning pattern. Most of the smaller garnet grains in other samples are also homogeneous in composition with a slight Xalm increase and Xprp decrease at the rims, typical for retrograde diffusional zoning. The migmatic gneisses and cordierite-garnet-sillimanite-granulites as well as mafic granulites were used for geothermobarometric calculations. Metamorphic conditions of around 770°C to 850°C and 0.5-0.6 GPa could be obtained, which are similar to the values obtained by Tropper et al. (2006). P. Tropper I. Deibl F. Finger R. Kaindl (2006).

    Massif anorthosites of Labrador are closely associated in space and time with voluminous, felsic, fayalite- and ferrous pyroxene-bearing igneous rocks. These include charnockites, monzonites, biotite-hornblende granites, and locally syenites. Igneous charnockites form major parts of some of the granitic complexes. In Mistastin batholith for example, charnockitic assemblages comprise about 35% of a total area of 6500 sq. km. Feldspar pairs and coexisting fayalite-opx-qtz in these rocks indicate P and T near 3.5 kb, 750/sup 0/C, assumed to represent near solidus equilibration. Diorites and monzonites intruded by charnockite have mesoperthites implying crystallization T>900/sup 0/C presumably recording earlier stages of crystallization. Oxide and silicate assemblages indicate redox conditions between FMQ and WM oxygen buffers and water pressures well below Ptotal. Younger biotite-hornblende granites and quartz syenites lack Ti-mt. but retain fayalite suggesting that magmatic crystallization was largely closed to water and oxygen. Initial Sr isotope ratios in charnockite-granite suites of central labrador support derivation of the magmas largely or entirely from crustal source rocks. Compositions of mafic silicates and plagioclase, associated Fe-Ti oxide concentrations, trace elements and Sr isotopes in massif anorthosites are in accord with the rocks being crystallization products of substantially fractionated, originally more mafic, mantle magmas. Close association of high temperature, water-poor, reduced crustal melts is consistent with a fusion process in which heat supply and oxygen buffering were controlled by fractional crystallization of a substantial body of mafic magma subjacent to continental crust.

    The Marcy Anorthosite Massif in the Adirondack Mountains, New York, is a composite intrusion that was metamorphosed to granulite facies at approx. 1.1 Ga. The massif is dominantly anorthosite but ranges from anorthosite (1-10% mafics) to oxide-rich pyroxenite layers (up to 98% mafics). In the St Regis Quad (SRQ) systematic variations in the percentage of mafics (POM) roughly parallel the foliation and increase toward the contacts (Davis, 1971). In 47 SRQ samples studied the POM varies from 2-25%; garnet ranges from 0-11%, pyroxene from <1-16% and oxides from <1-8%. Percent phenocrysts varies between 1-80. The Port Kent-Westport Unit (PKW) and an associated hybrid unit show significantly greater textural variability. The POM Varies from 1-50%; garnet ranges from 0-18%, pyroxene from 0-15%, oxides from 0-3% and phenocrysts vary from 0-80%. A total of 28 unaltered plagioclase phenocrysts have been analyzed for delta/sup 18/O: in 13 SRQ samples delta/sup 18/O = 9.0-9.8 (x=9.4. sigma=0.2) and in 15 samples from the PKW and hybrid units values of delta/sup 18/O=8.5-10.5 (x=9.5.sigma0.5). No correlations exist between the modal parameters and delta/sup 18/O. The results from SRQ demonstrate an extreme homogeneity suggesting for the first time a pristine magmatic character which is supported by the virtual absence of metasedimentary inclusions. This contrasts with PKW where inclusions are common and delta/sup 18/O values are more heterogeneous. Further analyses will evaluate the possibility of an anomalous source region as a cause of the /sup 18/O enrichment in the anorthosite.

    Oceanic core complexes (OCCs) are domal exposures of oceanic crust and mantle interpreted to be denuded to the seafloor by large slip oceanic detachment faults. We combine previously reported U-Pb zircon crystallization ages with (U-Th)/He zircon thermochronometry and multicomponent magnetic remanence data to determine the cooling history of the footwall to the Atlantis Massif OCC (30°N, MAR) and help establish cooling rates, as well as depths of detachment faulting and gabbro emplacement. We present nine new (U-Th)/He zircon ages for samples from IODP Hole U1309D ranging from 40 to 1415 m below seafloor. These data paired with U-Pb zircon ages and magnetic remanence data constrain cooling rates of gabbroic rocks from the upper 800 m of the central dome at Atlantis Massif as 2895 (+1276/-1162) °C Myr-1 (from ˜780°C to ˜250°C); the lower 600 m of the borehole cooled more slowly at mean rates of ˜500 (+125/-102) °C Myr-1(from ˜780°C to present-day temperatures). Rocks from the uppermost part of the hole also reveal a brief period of slow cooling at rates of ˜300°C Myr-1, possibly due to hydrothermal circulation to ˜4 km depth through the detachment fault zone. Assuming a fault slip rate of 20 mm/yr (from U-Pb zircon ages of surface samples) and a rolling hinge model for the sub-surface fault geometry, we predict that the 780°C isotherm lies at ˜7 km below the axial valley floor, likely corresponding both to the depth at which the semi-brittle detachment fault roots and the probable upper limit of significant gabbro emplacement.

    The histories of the pre-Mesozoic landmasses in southern México and their connections with Laurentia, Gondwana, and among themselves are crucial for the understanding of the Late Paleozoic assembly of Pangea. The Permian igneous and metamorphic rocks from the Chiapas massif as part of the southern Maya block, México, were dated by U–Pb zircon geochronology employing the SHRIMP (sensitive high resolution ion microprobe) facility at Stanford University. The Chiapas massif is composed of deformed granitoids and orthogneisses with inliers of metasedimentary rocks. SHRIMP data from an anatectic orthogneiss demonstrate that the Chiapas massif was part of a Permian (? 272 Ma) active continental margin established on the Pacific margin of Gondwana after the Ouachita orogeny. Latest Permian (252–254 Ma) medium- to high-grade metamorphism and deformation affected the entire Chiapas massif, resulting in anatexis and intrusion of syntectonic granitoids. This unique orogenic event is interpreted as the result of compression due to flat subduction and accretionary tectonics. SHRIMP data of zircon cores from a metapelite from the NE Chiapas massif yielded a single Grenvillian source for sediments. The majority of the zircon cores from a para-amphibolite from the SE part of the massif yielded either 1.0–1.2 or 1.4–1.5 Ga sources, indicating provenance from South American Sunsás and Rondonian-San Ignacio provinces.

    As shown by the recent Mw 7.0 Haiti earthquake, intra-arc deformation, which accompanies the subduction process, can present seismic and tsunami hazards to nearby islands. Spatially-limited diffuse tectonic deformation within the Northeast Caribbean Plate Boundary Zone likely led to the development of the submerged Mona Passage between Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. GPS geodetic data and a moderate to high level of seismicity indicate that extension within the region is ongoing. Newly-collected high-resolution multibeam bathymetry and multi-channel seismic reflection profiles and previously-collected samples are used here to determine the tectonic evolution of the Mona Passage intra-arc region. The passage is floored almost completely by Oligocene-Pliocene carbonate platform strata, which have undergone submarine and subaerial erosion. Structurally, the passage is characterized by W- to NNW-trending normal faults that offset the entire thickness of the Oligo-Pliocene carbonate platform rocks. The orientation of these faults is compatible with the NE-oriented extension vector observed in GPS data. Fault geometry best fits an oblique extension model rather than previously proposed single-phase, poly-phase, bending-moment, or rotation extension models. The intersection of these generally NW-trending faults in Mona Passage with the N-S oriented faults of Mona Canyon may reflect differing responses of the brittle upper-crust, along an arc-forearc rheological boundary, to oblique subduction along the Puerto Rico trench. Several faults within the passage, if ruptured completely, are long enough to generate earthquakes with magnitudes on the order of Mw 6.5-7. ?? 2010.

    Expanding on earlier research, empirically based methods are developed for predicting March-September rainfall in northern Northeast Brazil. From a network of 27 raingage stations in Brazil's Nordeste, new rainfall index series are constructed for March-September (MS) and October-January (OJ). Data input to stepwise multiple regression models further include January values of the Tahiti minus Darwin pressure index, an index of sea surface temperature (SST) in the equatorial Pacific (PWT), and indices of the fields of meridional (v) and zonal (u) wind components and of SST in the tropical Atlantic between 30°N and 30°S (AFV, ARJ, and AFT, respectively). Empirical orthogonal function (EOF) analysis of the v, u, and SST fields was used in constructing the latter three indices. Throughout the study, a sharp distinction is kept between a `dependent' dataset (1921-42 and 1948-57) used as a training period and an `independent' portion of the record (1958-87) reserved for prediction experiments.Preseason rainfall (OJ) is by far the most powerful predictor, allowing 52% of the interannual MS variance in an independent dataset to be forecast. From experiments with unrestricted data input, a model with the predictors OJ, AFV, and PWT shows the best performance, capturing 71% of the MS variance in the independent dataset. Experiments on the optimal length of the training period suggest that one of 20-30 years is adequate. Updating offers no advantage over a fixed training period. For the purposes of operational application, the maintenance and timely processing of raingage measurements is of paramount importance. The next important task, demanding considerably greater resources, would be the real-lime monitoring of the surface wind field over the tropical Atlantic.

    In northeast Australia, the Great Barrier Reef and the Queensland and Marion plateaus comprise carbonate platforms separated by major rift basins. Cenozoic platform evolution has been dependent upon (1) northward drift of Australia from temperate into tropical latitudes; (2) subsidence pulses in the Eocene/Oligocene and the Pliocene/Pleistocene; (3) sea level oscillations; (4) continental and oceanic influences; and (5) paleophysiography and paleo-ocean chemistry. The evolution of each platform reflects the interaction of these factors on its development. Further, the evolution of the Queensland Plateau has markedly affected that of the Great Barrier Reef through its influence on circulation patterns. In the Eocene/Oligocene, and shelf on which the Great Barrier Reef grew protected the Marion Plateau from terrigenous influences, while in the late Miocene to early Pliocene the Marion Plateau formed the springboard from which the central and southern Great Barrier Reef developed. Models of platform development must take account of 1)early Eocene reef initiation on the Queensland Plateau concomitant with marine transgression into the adjacent rift troughs; 2)Eocene/Oligocene subsidence resulting in stepback of the reefs from the flank of the Queensland Plateau and reestablishment at higher bathymetric levels, concomitant clastic sedimentation along the tropical northern continental margin and temperate(.) carbonate progradation along the margin of the Marion Plateau; 3)extensive growth of Miocene reef complexes on the Queensland Plateau and the initiation of reef complexes on the Marion Plateau and on the northern section of the Great Barrier Reef; and 4)Pliocene subsidence leading to contraction of the area of reef growth on the Queensland Plateau, with almost total drowning of the Marion Plateau and stepback of the Miocene barrier and platform reefs to their present position on the central Great Barrier Reef.

    Monchetundra massif is located in the central part of the Kola Peninsula and it is the south-eastern part of the Main Ridge Intrusion. The massif is subdivided into two up to five syngenetic zones by different researchers (Nazimova, Rayan, 2008, Nerovich et. al. 2009, Layered intrusions…p.1, 2004). According the isotope-geochronological and isotope-geochemical data it can identify at least four groups of rocks distinguishing by ages. The aim of this study is to identify the isotope-geochemical Sm-Nd (ENd and TDM) data of the mafic rocks of the massif Monchetundra. For the interpretation of these data it was selected 40 analyzes of rocks sampled during field works within Monchetundra massif in 2011-2012 and from the published data (Nerovich et. al., 2009, Bayanova et. al., 2010, Layered intrusions…p.2, 2004). The earliest group of rocks is dated by U-Pb zircon in 2521 ± 8 Ma (Bayanova et. al., 2010). It consist of metagabbroids of wide composition range from anorthosite up to gabbro, which also called «amphibole-plagioclase rocks» (Nerovich et. al., 2009) due to their strong metamorphic changes. These rocks are characterized by ENd values from -0.02 up to -2.23 (at the time of rocks formation) as well as mesoarchean and paleoarchean values of model ages. The second group of rocks is composed of medium- grained and coarse-grained mesocratic gabbronorites of trachytoid texture and their amphibolized varieties. The rocks of this group were dated in 2505 ± 6 Ma and 2501 ± 8 Ma (Layered intrusions…p.1., 2004). Values of ENd for these rocks vary from -1.70 up to +1.42, model ages correspond to the range from 2.7 up to 3.5 Ga. Leucocratic gabbronorites, gabbronorite-anorthosites of massive texture and their metamorphosed varieties with garnet and amphibole constitute the third group of Monchetundra massife rocks. The formation age of these rocks has been determined on zircon and baddeleyite by U-Pb method and it is 2471 ± 9 Ma, 2476 ± 17 Ma, 2456 ± 5 Ma and 2453 ± 4 Ma (Bayanova et. al., 2010, Mitrofanov et. al., 1993). Value of ENd for this group rocks vary from -3.38 to +2.08, and the values of the model ages range between 2.7 and 3.4 Ga. Dyke-shaped bodies of melanocratic troctolites are found within the southeastern slope of Monchetundra massif. These rocks are characterized by positive values of ENd varying from +2.01 to +3.28, and the values of model ages are close to 2.7 Ga. Gabbro-pegmatites occur at the upper part of the Monchtundra massif and are characterized by negative ENd values from -1.26 up to -0.63, and model ages of protolith range from 3.0 to 3.2 Ga. Isotope-geochemical Sm-Nd (ENd and TDM) data indicate the origining of gabbro massif from EM-1 mantle plume reservoir and this fact is confirmed by the ENd-ISr diagrams in accordance with published data (Bayanova et. al., 2009). The research is conducted with the financial support of RFBR 13-05-00493, OFI-M 13-05-12055, 14-05-93965 and 14-05-00484.

    The structure of the Jiuling Massif has been investigated in order to delineate the polyorogenic deformation and discuss its geodynamic evolution and orogenic mechanisms. Detailed structural analysis indicates that the D1 event is characterized by top-to-the NNW ductile shearing with pervasive foliation, and mineral and stretching lineation developed in the entire region. Compared with the D1 deformation, D2 structures are localized in ductile shear zones with subvertical foliation and subhorizontal E-W trending lineation, indicating a dextral ductile shearing. The D3 event, marked by folds and thrusts mainly in a brittle domain, modified the D1 structures by asymmetrical folds. The dominant D4 structures are gravitational folds and normal faults, corresponding to a later extension. Our new geochronological data suggest that the D1 event occurred between 465 and 380 Ma with D2 dextral shearing at the end of this Early Paleozoic orogen, and the D3 event has been constrained at 245-215 Ma. The final uplift of the Jiuling Massif by the D4 event can be correlated with the Late Mesozoic extension across the eastern South China block. Along with previous studies in the South China block, the structural pattern of the Jiuling Massif elucidates the influence of the Early Paleozoic and Early Mesozoic intracontinental belts triggered by repeated reactivation of the Jiangshan-Shaoxing Fault. Combined with deformation to the south, the Early Paleozoic belt shows a positive flower pattern, with opposing kinematics, rooted in the Jiangshan-Shaoxing Fault. During the Early Mesozoic, a general intracontinental belt was developed with uniform kinematics in both the Jiuling Massif and the Xuefengshan Belt, possibly resulted from the far-field effect of the Triassic NW-directed Paleo-Pacific subduction.

    The Atlantis Massif, an oceanic core complex (OCC) at 30ºN on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, is hypothesized to have formed via long-lived slip on a detachment fault. Due to unroofing that results from this sustained slip, the domal core of the OCC is predicted to comprise lower crustal and\\/or upper mantle rock. Seafloor mapping and deep drilling confirm that this is

    A Northeast snowfall impact scale (NESIS) is presented to convey a measure of the impact of heavy snowfall in the Northeast urban corridor, a region that extends from southern Virginia to New England. The scale is derived from a synoptic climatology of 30 major snowstorms in the Northeast urban corridor and applied to the snowfall distribution of 70 snowstorms east of the Rocky Mountains. NESIS is similar in concept to other meteorological scales that are designed to simplify complex phenomena into an easily understood range of values. The Fujita scale for tornadoes and the Saffir Simpson scale for hurricanes measure the potential for destruction to property and loss of life by wind-related damage (and storm surge for Saffir Simpson) through use of a categorical ranking (0 or 1 5).

    OBJECTIVES The Northeast Regional Cancer Institute is conducting a program of ongoing epidemiologic research to address cancer disparities in northeast Pennsylvania. Of particular concern are disparities in the incidence of, stage at diagnosis, and mortality from colorectal cancer. In northeast Pennsylvania, age-adjusted incidence and mortality rates for colorectal cancer are higher, and a significantly smaller proportion of new colorectal cancer cases are diagnosed with local stage disease than is observed in comparable national data. Further, estimates of the prevalence of colorectal cancer screening in northeast Pennsylvania are lower than the US average. The Northeast Regional Cancer Institute’s research program supports surveillance of common cancers, investigations of cancer risk factors and screening behaviors, and the development of resources to further cancer research in this community. This project has the following specific objectives: I. To conduct cancer surveillance in northeast Pennsylvania. a. To monitor incidence and mortality for all common cancers, and colorectal cancer, in particular, and b. To document changes in the stage at diagnosis of colorectal cancer in this high-risk, underserved community. II. To conduct a population-based study of cancer risk factors and screening behavior in a six county region of northeast Pennsylvania. a. To monitor and document changes in colorectal cancer screening rates, and b. To document the prevalence of cancer risk factors (especially factors that increase the risk of colorectal cancer) and to identify those risk factors that are unusually common in this community. APPROACH Cancer surveillance was conducted using data from the Northeast Regional Cancer Institute’s population-based Regional Cancer Registry, the Pennsylvania Cancer Registry, and NCI’s SEER program. For common cancers, incidence and mortality were examined by county within the region and compared to data for similar populations in the US. For colorectal cancer, the stage at diagnosis of cases diagnosed in northeast Pennsylvania was compared to data from prior years. A population-based interview study of healthy adults was conducted to document the status of cancer screening and to estimate the prevalence of established cancer risk factors in this community. This study is similar in design to that used by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS). EXPERIMENTAL METHODS AND PROCEDURES: This program includes two distinct but related projects. The first project uses existing data to conduct cancer surveillance in northeast Pennsylvania, and the second is a population-based study of cancer risk factors and cancer screening behaviors in this same population. HUMAN SUBJECTS CONSIDERATIONS This program includes two projects: cancer surveillance and a population-based study of cancer risk factors and screening behavior. The cancer surveillance project involves only the use of existing aggregate data or de-identified data. As such, the surveillance project is exempt from human subjects considerations. The study of cancer risk factors and screening behaviors includes data from a random sample of adult residents of northeast Pennsylvania who are 18 or more years of age. All races, ethnicities and both sexes are included in proportion to their representation in the population. Subjects are interviewed anonymously by telephone; those who are unable to complete an interview in English are ineligible. This project has been reviewed and approved by the Scranton-Temple Residency Program IRB (IRB00001355), which is the IRB for the Northeast Regional Cancer Institute.

    Ice discharge from north and northeast Greenland calculated from satellite radar interferometry data of 14 outlet glaciers is 3.5 times that estimated from iceberg production. The satellite estimates, obtained at the grounding line of the outlet glaciers, differ from those obtained at the glacier front, because basal melting is extensive at the underside of the floating glacier sections. The results suggest that the north and northeast parts of the Greenland ice sheet may be thinning and contributing positively to sea-level rise. 24 refs., 3 figs., 1 tab.

    The use of computing codes allowing finite elements analysis is a very useful tool in detecting variations of the tensional state of rock massifs. Most of the codes used for ground modelling only allow 2D analysis. However, in the case of complex slope instabilities, it is necessary to consider the variation of resistant properties in a 3D model. This work presents an example in which 3D analysis carried out by finite elements methods becomes essential to understand the surface processes occurred in a urbanized rock massif (Montegolf, Malaga). The studied area is a small hill of elliptical shaped plan (300x200m plan). As a main peculiarity of this hill, it was intensively undergone to human activity in recent years. On September 11th, 2000, the collapse of an inner cavity (100m3 in volume) took place. The cavity proceeded from a mining abandoned 30 years before. The application of a 3D finite elements model showed that the highway slope digged in the Eastern face of the mount produced a change in the tensional state inside the mount. Vertical stresses shifted from compression to tension eliminating the vault effect. To define the geometry of the model, a survey of the existing contour map was carried out and conveniently transformed into ACIS format to be processed by ABAQUS (finite elements program). In the two-dimensional case an E-W section involving houses, highway and cavity was chosen. Mining hole was considered in the model, using a 10m-diameter sphere to represent the cavity. The performance of the natural materials was supposed to be elastic so Young modulus and Poisson's ratio were required. The ground strains due to collapse of the cavity and obtained by the finite elements model were accurately related to the mapping of cracks on the surface, the sinking of topographical landmarks (located on the top of the mountain) and the photographic analysis (captures before and after the collapse). Thus it is confirmed that the surface sliding which affected the residential house Montegolf was caused by the collapse of a cavity inside the mount. 3D models confirmed that the highway slope digged on the mount and the subsequent instabilities in that slope were the main conditioning factors of this collapse.

  11. CRE dating on the scarps of large landslides affecting the Belledonne massif ( French Alps)

    The southwestern edge of the Belledonne Massif (French Alps) consists of micaschists unconformably covered with Mesozoic sediments and Quaternary deposits. The morphology corresponds to a glacial plateau (Mont Sec plateau) bordered by steep slopes (around 40°), where moraines and peat bog subsist. The massif is incised by the East-West trending Romanche valley that was shaped by several cycles of quaternary glaciations and deglaciations. Slopes are affected by several active or past large scale rock mass instabilities. Cosmic Ray Exposure (CRE) dating was applied on the head scarps of three large landslides, one of which being the active Séchilienne landslide whose headscarp was already dated by Leroux et al. [2009]. Dating results suggest a concomitant initiation of these instabilities at about 7 ± 2 10Be ka, thousands years after the total downwastage of the valley. A different kinematic behaviour was however observed on two contiguous landslides for which continuous exposure profiles were obtained. On the Séchilienne landslide, 23 samples were collected from internal and lateral scarps, as well as on polished bedrock surfaces, with the aim of dating the internal kinematics of the landslide. Preliminary dating results obtained on polished surfaces and near the top of the scarps show unexpected low 10Be concentrations, suggesting the existence of thin moraine or peat bog deposits masking the bedrock, which have been subsequently eroded. The minimum thickness of these deposits was estimated assuming a constant denudation rate over time. Exposure date profiles show that the studied lateral and internal scarps were initiated at the same period as the Sechilienne headscarp. An increase in the exposure rate was also observed between 2 and 1 ka, in agreement with that evidenced along the headscarp. Forty other samples have been collected in the landslide to corroborate these results. Reference Le Roux, O., S. Schwartz , J.-F. Gamond, D. Jongmans, D. Bourles, R. Braucher, W. Mahaney, J.

  12. Methane Seepage at Hyperalkaline Springs in the Ronda Peridotite Massif (Spain)

    Methane-rich, hyperalkaline spring waters and bubbling pools have been sampled in the Ronda peridotite massif in southern Spain. Water chemistry (T: 17.1-21.5 ºC; pH: 10.7-11.7; DO: <2 mg/L; Ca-OH facies) is characteristic of present-day serpentinization. Dissolved CH4 concentrations range from 0.1 to 3.2 mg/L. CH4 stable C and H isotope ratios suggest a dominant abiotic origin in two natural spring sites (delta13C: -13 to -29 ‰ VPDB; delta2H: -309 to -333 ‰ VSMOW) and a mixed biotic-abiotic origin in springs with artificial water delivery systems (i.e., pipes or fountains; delta13C: -44 to -69 ‰; delta2H: -180 to -319 ‰). At the natural springs, gas is mainly released through bubbles close to the water outlet (CH4 flux ~1 kg/day by individual bubble trains), and subordinately by microseepage from the ground, even at distances of ~100 m from the bubble-spring site (flux of 10's, up to 97, mg CH4 m-2day-1). Gas seepage is strictly controlled by faults. Under-saturation of CH4 in water, bubbling and seepage location suggest that CH4 is not exclusively transported to the surface by hyperalkaline water, but it follows autonomous migration pathways along faults. Similar 'dry' seepage of abiotic gas was observed in the Philippines, New Zealand, Turkey and Italy. Like other land-based serpentinization systems, the Ronda peridotite massif is characterized by low heat flow (<40 mW/m2), with temperatures <60°C at depths of 1.5 km. At these low T and high pH conditions, CO32- is the only available carbon source dissolved in the water, and unlikely contributes to catalysed Fischer-Tropsch Type reactions. Methane production from CO2 hydrogenation in a gas phase system (unsaturated fractured rocks) cannot be excluded. The presence of ruthenium-enriched chromitites in the Ronda peridotites may support the hypothesis that CH4 is produced by CO2 hydrogenation catalyzed by Ru minerals, even at temperatures below 100°C, as demonstrated in recent laboratory experiments (Etiope and Ionescu, 2014, Geofluids, in press).

  13. Link between surface temperature and documented rockfalls in the Mont Blanc massif rockwalls

    2014-05-01

    Recent studies show that rockfall activity has increased along the three past decades in high mountain areas, and permafrost degradation is regarded as the main triggering factor. 433 rockfalls affecting the steep rockwalls of the Mont Blanc massif have been inventoried and documented (time and precise location, topographical and geological settings, volume, conditions, etc.) from 2007 to 2011. With the aim of better understanding geomorphic processes, we address questions about the thermal state of the unstable rockwalls within this study area. A statistical model of the Mean Annual Rock Surface Temperature (MARST) for the 1961-1990 period has been implemented on a 4-m-resolution DEM of the Mont Blanc massif. The model runs with Potential Incoming Solar radiation (PISR) calculated with GIS tools and air temperature parameters computed from Chamonix Météo France's records. 87 rockfalls are located at the geographical margins of the DEM, where the PISR calculation doesn't take account of the surrounding hillshading and biased MARST simulation. Thus, only 346 rockfalls were kept and linked to a MARST value after data sorting. Preliminary results show that rockfalls occurred over a modelled MARST range of -6°C to 5°C. MARSTs ranging from -2.5°C to 2.5°C encompass about 60% of the rockfalls. The mean MARST value for the 346 rockfalls is of -0.9°C. Simulated warm permafrost areas (> -2°C) are therefore appearing as the most affected by instabilities. These first observations reinforce the hypothesis that permafrost degradation is likely the dominant triggering factor of these rockfalls. The 1961-1990 period is supposed to be representative of the conditions at depth that are not affected by the recent climate warming. This means that the here presented results are mainly valuable for rockfalls related to pluri-decadal signal. But they also suggest that MARST model is an interesting tool to explore the link between rockwall instability and permafrost state. Simulations at various time scales would allow more precise reconstruction of the bedrock temperature during each year of rockfalls. Model possibilities and the related outcomings will be also presented.

  14. Isotope Sm-Nd age of the paleoproterozoic PGE-bearing Monchetundra massif trachytoid gabbronorites (Fennoscandian shield)

    Monchetundra massif is located in the central part of the Kola Peninsula (Russia) and it is the south-eastern part of the Main Ridge Intrusion. Monchetundra massif together with well-known layered mafic-ultramafic PGE-bearing intrusions in the Fennoscandian shield such as the Fedorovo-Pansky complex, the mt. Generalskaya, the Monchepluton is of interest as a target for the PGE prospecting (Mitrofanov et al. 2006; Nerovich et al., 2009; Grokhovskaya et al., 2003). According to some previously researchers (Nazimova, Rayan, 2008, Nerovich et al., 2009, Layered intrusions…p.1, 2004) rocks of the Monchetundra massif is subdivided into two to five syngenetic zones. Hence the last isotope-geochronological and isotope-geochemical data revealed that the massif includes at least four groups of mafic rocks distinguished by formation ages (Bayanova et al., 2010). The aim of this work is to present Sm-Nd dating results of trachytoid gabbronorites, which are the second mafic rocks group in the Monchetundra massif. The Sm-Nd investigations for these rocks were carried out for the first time. The second group of mafic rocks comprises of medium-grained and coarse-grained mesocratic gabbronorites of trachytoid texture, with they characterized by well-preserved primary magmatic minerals and gabbro-ophitic texture. The U-Pb ages on single zircon-baddeleyite for these rocks recently obtained (2505 ± 6 Ma, 2501 ± 8 Ma, 2504.4±2.7 Ma and 2507.5±7.7 Ma (Layered intrusions…p.1., 2004, Borisenko et al., 2013)). Two samples of trachytoid gabbronorites were selected to study these rocks by Sm-Nd isotopic method. Mineral isochrons plotted from plagioclase, ortho- and clinopyroxene and whole-rock minerals gave ages of 2496±27 (MSWD = 0.9; ?Nd = -1.6±0.5) and 2492±55 Ma (MSWD = 0.5; ?Nd = -1.7±0.5). The new Sm-Nd ages obtained are close to the U-Pb data on zircons and baddeleyites for this rocks group and consider as oridin of second mafic rocks group. All investigations are devoted to memory of academician RAS, professor F. Mitrofanov (Russia), he was a leader of scientific school for geology, geochemistry and metallogeny of ore deposits. The researches are conducted with the financial support of RFBR 13-05-00493, OFI-M 13-05-12055, IGCP-SIDA 599.

  15. Understanding the Tectonic Deformation of Turkish Blocks since Mesozoic; A Paleomagnetic study on the Nigde-Kirsehir Massif and the Taurides

    It is reported that the Nigde-Kirsehir massif which constitutes the main fragment of Anatolia is rifted from the Taurides-Anatolides in Mesozoic and that the Intra-Tauride ocean exist between these blocks. Another group of researchers believed that the Intra Tauride ocean did not exist. They assumed that the Nigde-Kirsehir massif existed as a promotory of the Taurides. In this sense, both the Nigde-Kirsehir massif and the Taurides experienced several deformation phases due to the consumption of the oceanic strand (s) and the amalgamation of the Anatolian blocks after collision in the end of the paleotectonic time, whereas in the neotectonic time the traces of the westwards excursion of Anatolia was effective. Previous paleomagnetic studies showed that the Nigde-Kirsehir massif rotated 90° anticlockwise during Jurassic to Eocene time and other studies showed that the collision between the Nigde-Kirsehir massif and the Pontides resulted by deformation which was accomodated by regional faults. In the south of the Nigde-Kirsehir massif, it was proposed that all the rocks in Carboniferous to Eosen were remagnetized due to nap emplacement in Eocene. Because of several alternative interpretations about the tectonic deformation of the Nigde-Kirsehir massif in relation between the Taurides and the Pontides, we report new paleomagnetic results from Late Jurassic to Miocene rocks in the Nigde-Kirsehir massif and its surrounding. A total of 138 different sites were sampled from Jurassic to Miocene rocks in the south of the Nigde-Kirsehir massif around Ki ri kkale, Tuzgölü, Uluki ?la and Kayseri, whereas in the Central Taurides Late Jurassic- Lower Cretaceous platform type carbonates and ophiolitic rocks from Mersin and Pozanti were collected. Paleomagnetic results evaluated together with previous paleomagnetic data indicate that all the studied rocks carry a magnetization before folding according to positive incremental fold tests. It has been shown that in the SE/E (SE Taurides) and the SW/W (Central Taurides) area two different sense of rotation occured. In the SE/E area, counterclockwise rotation of 18° took place in the period between Lower Cretaceous-Middle Eocene. The rotations are consistent with the thrust directions, indicating evidence for the consumption of the Intra Tauride ocean in Late Cretaceous. This result was supported by the paleolatitudes obtained for the Taurides and the Ni?de Ki r?ehir massif which showed a spatial gap of 1000 km between the Pontides and the Taurides in Late Jurassic- Lower Cretaceous and Late Cretaceous. In the SW/W, however, clockwise rotation of 47° between Middle Eocene and Miocene time, imply that the deformation occured in a later phase as a result of consumption of the South Neotethys ocean and the collision between the African and Eurasian plates. Accordingly to the paleomagnetic rotations which took place gradually in the SE/E area in Middle Eocene, it is shown that counterclockwise rotations of 25° took place in the Ni?de Ki r?ehir massif during Paleocene. This implies that the Nigde-Kirsehir massif underwent similar deformation together with the adjacent block in the SE/E. In the Neotectonic period, counterclockwise rotation of 17° was obtained in the SE/E area. It is shown that the westwards movement of Anatolia affected mainly the SE/E ares despite the SW/W and the Nigde-Kirsehir massif, which show no significant rotations. This study was financially supported by the project of the Scientific and Technical Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK) with Project number 111Y043.

  16. Lithologic Distribution and Geologic History of the Apollo 17 Site: The Record in Soils and Small Rock Particles from the Highland Massifs

    1996-01-01

    Through analysis by instrumental neutron activation (INAA) of 789 individual lithic fragments from the 2 mm-4 mm grain-size fractions of five Apollo 17 soil samples (72443, 72503, 73243, 76283, and 76503) and petrographic examination of a subset, we have determined the diversity and proportions of rock types recorded within soils from the highland massifs. The distribution of rock types at the site, as recorded by lithic fragments in the soils, is an alternative to the distribution inferred from the limited number of large rock samples. The compositions and proportions of 2 mm-4 mm fragments provide a bridge between compositions of less than 1 mm fines and types and proportions of rocks observed in large collected breccias and their clasts. The 2 mm-4 mm fraction of soil from South Massif, represented by an unbiased set of lithic fragments from station-2 samples 72443 and 72503, consists of 71% noritic impact-melt breccia, 7% Incompatible-Trace-Element-(ITE)-poor highland rock types (mainly granulitic breccias), 19% agglutinates and regolith breccias, 1% high-Ti mare basalt, and 2% others (very-low-Ti (VLT) basalt, monzogabbro breccia, and metal). In contrast, the 2 mm - 4 mm fraction of a soil from the North Massif, represented by an unbiased set of lithic fragments from station-6 sample 76503, has a greater proportion of ITE-poor highland rock types and mare-basalt fragments: it consists of 29% ITE-poor highland rock types (mainly granulitic breccias and troctolitic anorthosite), 25% impact-melt breccia, 13% high-Ti mare basalt, 31 % agglutinates and regolith breccias, 1% orange glass and related breccia, and 1% others. Based on a comparison of mass- weighted mean compositions of the lithic fragments with compositions of soil fines from all Apollo 17 highland stations, differences between the station-2 and station-6 samples are representative of differences between available samples from the two massifs. From the distribution of different rock types and their compositions, we conclude the following: (1) North-Massif and South-Massif soil samples differ significantly in types and proportions of ITE-poor highland components and ITE-rich impact-melt-breccia components. These differences reflect crudely layered massifs and known local geology. The greater percentage of impact-melt breccia in the South- Massif light-mantle soil stems from derivation of the light mantle from the top of the massif, which apparently is richer in noritic impact-melt breccia than are lower parts of the massifs. (2) At station 2, the 2 mm-4 mm grain-size fraction is enriched in impact-melt breccias compared to the less than 1 mm fraction, suggesting that the <1 mm fraction within the light mantle has a greater proportion of lithologies such as granulitic breccias which are more prevalent lower in the massifs and which we infer to be older (pre-basin) highland components. (3) Soil from station 6, North Massif, contains magnesian troctolitic anorthosite, which is a component that is rare in station-2 South-Massif,contains magnesian troctolitic in impact-melt breccia interpreted by most investigators to be ejecta from the Serenitatis basin.

    Historical XBT data are used to construct a mean climatology of the three-dimensional geostrophic circulation in the northeast tropical Pacific (southwest of Mexico and Central America) and are diagnosed based on linear dynamics forced with satellite scatterometer winds. Unlike the familiar central tropical Pacific, where the zonal scales are very large and the wind forcing nearly a function of latitude
