Description

The book provides a synthesis of Archaean and Proterozoic crustal evolution in the North Atlantic Regions. There is particular reference to Proterozoic collisional tectonics. The main topics include: Archaean crustal growth; Proterozoic crustal growth; orogenic processes during the Proterozoic; geochronology of Proterozoic tectono-thermal processes; and provenance of Proterozoic sediments.

Contents

Crustal and mantle reflectors from Palaeoproterozoic orogens and their relation to arc-continent collisions • Tonalite-trondhjemite-granodiorite magmatism and the genesis of Lewisian crust during the Archaean • Isotopic (Nd, O) and geochemical (REE) heterogeneity of the Archaean mantle, Baltic Shield • Age and geodynamic aspects of the oldest rocks in the Precambrian Belomorian Belt of the Baltic (Fennoscandian) Shield • High-grade metamorphism of 2.45-2.4 Ga age in mafic intrusions of the Belomorian Belt of the northeastern Baltic Shield • Burwell domain of the Palaeoproterozoic Torngat Orogen, northeastern Canada: tilted cross-section of a magmatic arc caught between a rock and a hard place • Torngat Orogen - a Palaeoproterozoic example of a narrow doubly vergent collisional orogen • The Palaeoproterozoic Southeastern Churchill Province of Labrador-Quebec, Canada: orogenic development as a consequence of oblique collision and indentation • The Makkovik Province: extension of the Ketilidian Mobile Belt in mainland North Americ • Palaeoproterozoic oblique plate convergence in South Greenland: a reappraisal of the Ketilidian Orogen • The evolution of the Grenville Province in Eastern Labrador, Canada • Accretion, rifting, rotation and collision in the North Atlantic Supercontinent, 1700-950 Ma • The relationship between 1.88 Ga old magmatism and the Baltic-Bothnian shear zone in northern Sweden • The Mesoproterozoic cratonization of Baltica: new age constraints from SW Sweden • Mesoproterozoic anorogenic magmatism in southern Norway • Thermotectonic evolution of the Eastern Segment of southwestern Sweden: tectonic constraints from U-Pb geochronology • 40Ar/39Ar geochronological constraints on the tectonothermal evolution of the Eastern Segment of the Sveconorwegian Orogen, south-central Sweden • Palaeomagnetism and Sm-Nd ages of the Neoproterozoic diabase dykes in Laanila and Kautokeino, northern Fennoscandia • The provenance of pre-Scandian continental flakes within the Caledonide Orogen of south-central Norway • Provenance of late Proterozoic Dalradian tillite clasts, Inner Hebrides, Scotland
