Ages and P-T conditions of metamorphic events in the Windmill Islands
Entry ID: AAS_4191_metamorphic_events


Summary
Abstract: The age and conditions of metamorphism of the Windmill Islands were investigated using samples collected in the 2013/2014 field season from locations throughout the Windmill Islands region. The Windmill Islands vary in metamorphic grade, from amphibolite-facies in the north, to high-grade granulite-facies in the south. Samples were selected from peninsulas and islands from north to south to ... View entire text

Quality No problems with data collection.

Some data were obtained from a PhD thesis completed in the 1990s by Nichola Post.

Regarding sample locations: The LM and KM series are moraine samples, and therefore there is just a location for the areas in the moraine visited (three moraine locations in total, 2 for the LM series and 1 for the KM series), but each sample doesn't have a unique location.
