Rolf L. Vance, W. Drill core samples of garnet-clinopyroxene granulite at Tirschheim and a reference sample at Waldheim Saxon Granulite Massif, Germany endured the same P-T conditions, but developed variable mineral assemblages due to differences in bulk chemistry, reaction progress, deformation and retrogression. Dating titanite from the various samples should yield the same age for all. The observed age variation, which exceeds the duration of the entire metamorphic cycle, originates from the contrasting preservation of isotopic inheritance during peak metamorphism and from post-peak re-equilibration. Instead, metamorphic minerals inherit the radiogenic signatures of the precursor minerals and may in extreme cases approach the age of the precursor mineral.

Abstract Laser ablation inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry analyses of U—Pb isotopes and trace elements in zircon and titanite were carried out on epoxy mounts and thin sections for ultrahigh-pressure UHP eclogite in association with paragneiss in the Dabie orogen.

Titanite is a common accessory mineral suitable for precise U-Pb dating of metamorphic and fluid events. In polymetamorphic terrains titanite may record.

Metrics details. These sampled both oceanic brecciated material and a blackwall reaction zone in contact with a micaschist and serpentinized peridotite. Textural observations combined with new geochronological data indicate that rutile and titanite both grew below their closure temperatures during Alpine metamorphism. We present a technique to calculate the most precise and accurate ages possible using a two-dimensional U—Pb isochron on a Wetherill concordia.

Rutile from two samples gave a U—Pb isochron age of Titanite from three samples gave a U—Pb isochron age of This age is consistent with Rb—Sr isochron ages on mylonites along and in the footwall of the Lunghin—Mortirolo movement zone, a major boundary that separates ductile deformation in the footwall from mostly localized and brittle deformation in the hangingwall. Rubatto In the past decade, U—Pb geochronology of other accessory minerals has attracted increasing interest, with the growing recognition that in metamorphic contexts they may record a different part of the P—T evolution from zircon e.

The U-Pb geochronologic analysis of accessory minerals has played an important role in Earth and solar system science in constraining the ages of a wide variety of rocks and minerals. Currently, the significant matrix effects observed between different accessory minerals and the lack of high-quality standards for many minerals of interest are the major limitations of its geochronological applications. In this study, we investigated the effects of the addition of oxygen, nitrogen, and water vapor before and after the ablation cell on the accuracy of the U-Pb dating of different minerals e.

We found that the addition of water vapor, unlike that of oxygen and nitrogen, before the ablation cell can significantly suppress the matrix effects on U-Pb dating.

However, many of these U-bearing minerals also contain non-radiogenic common Pb, which requires correction to accurately determine the age of the mineral. To date, the Pb correction method has been limited by the isobaric interference from Hg, which requires mathematical correction by measuring Hg. We demonstrate the applicability of the Pb correction method using a range of common Pb bearing apatites and titanites.

Titanite is an ideal mineral for U-Pb isotopic dating because of its relatively high U, Th and Pb contents. Here, we developed a technique for U-Pb.

Passarelli; Miguel A. Basei; Oswaldo Siga Jr. Sproesser; Vasco A. It provides reliable and accurate results in age determination of superposed events. However, the open-system behavior such as Pb-loss, the inheritance problem and metamictization processes allow and impel us to a much richer understanding of the power and limitations of U-Pb geochronology and thermochronology.

Since , the Interdepartmental Laboratory of Isotopic Geology focus the study of the Earth’s geologic processes, dealing with themes such as plate tectonics, plutonism, volcanism, sedimentary rocks, tectono-thermal evolution, and more recently environmental studies. CPGeo gathers modern laboratories installed inan area of m 2 and is equipped with seven mass spectrometers for radiogenic and stable isotope analysis. The method is considered one of the most precise among the isotopic techniques available for U-Th-Pb geochronology of accessory minerals, because it is relative insensitive to chemical yields or mass spectrometric sensitivity Parrish and Noble , and is therefore largely used by the scientific community.

According to Kosler and Sylvester the in situ U-Pb geochronology was introduced ca. TIMS analyses, comparatively to SIMS analyses, have the advantage of producing high-precision U-Pb data, being specifically important when dating superposed events or even a single crystal, in order to define crystallization ages. However, ion microprobe analysis has the advantage of higher spatial resolution, allowing analysis of complex zoned crystals and fast data acquisition.

Countless works in the literature show the pros and cons of TIMS and SIMS, which are, in a broad sense, complementary techniques and the application of one or another will depend on the geological problem to be solved.

Uranium–lead dating

Titanite is unstable at these high temperatures and pressures, and, indeed, most of the titanite yielded post-UHP dates. A modest number of titanites sampled across large areas, however, have pre-UHP U—Pb dates, indicating that they survived their excursion to and return from mantle depths metastably. This has three important implications. Phase transformations in quartzofeldspathic rocks can be inhibited at the same conditions.

Quartz-bearing rocks can remain undeformed even at high temperature and pressure.

The south central Okcheon belt of the southern Korean peninsula experienced polyphase granitic magmatism and deformation during the Mesozoic. This study presents integrated results of ion microprobe U-Pb geochronology and microtextural and microchemical analyses of zircon and titanite from pre-tectonic Baegnok and Cheongsan and post-tectonic Boeun and Sokrisan plutons with respect to the Cheongsan shear zone.

On the other hand, the titanite grains from this rock are categorized into two age populations corresponding to the late Triassic The older population is clearly of igneous origin, considering partly preserved oscillatory zoning in back scattered electron images. Therefore the age indicates contrasting early cooling paths of the two pre-tectonic plutons.

The younger population is interpreted to be the product of superimposed metasomatic reactions involving plagioclase, ilmenite, rutile, epidote, and calcite. This study highlights the importance of detailed microanalysis prior to the isotopic dating of samples that have experienced complex tectono-magmatic episodes.

Titanite coexists with zircon in a felsic tuff in the Paleoproterozoic Timeball Hill Formation, southern Africa. Two generations of titanite are preserved: euhedral, brown crystals with apatite inclusions, and colorless, matrix-filling cement. The brown titanite has elevated U, Th and Fe, and low Al, consistent with a magmatic origin, whereas the colorless titanite has higher Al and F contents, suggestive of a metamorphic paragenesis.

This date is consistent with U–Pb zircon ages for tuffs in the same stratigraphic unit from a nearby drill-hole. The brown titanite is interpreted to be magmatic and to provide a reliable estimate for the age of deposition. Our results demonstrate that titanite is a versatile chronometer that can be used to constrain depositional ages, and those of low-grade metamorphism, thus increasing the number of sedimentary rocks that can be dated and elucidating the low-temperature geological history of depositional basins.

This study investigates Ti mobility in the presence of halogens, as shown by the hydrothermal alteration of magmatic rutile in syenite. The syenite pegmatite studied intrudes gabbro, is preserved as a tectonic block in a major strike-slip fault zone, and formed in a back-arc environment in which there was widespread A-type granite plutonism. Magmatic rutile in the syenite forms millimetric-scale crystals rimmed by magmatic titanite and magnetite and also occurs as smaller interstitial crystals.

The syenite was synchronous with the later phases of regional A-type granite plutonism. Later hydrothermal halogen-rich fluids, derived from dissolution of halite, produced widespread metasomatic scapolite in the syenite. Such fluids resulted in local dissolution-reprecipitation of Ti and Zr and resetting of the U-Pb system in the altered rutile, at
