Presentation Transcript

  1. Metamorphic rocks

  2. Today Updates: Midterm Lecture outline: • Types of metamorphism • Prograde and retrograde

  3. Types of Metamorphism Different approaches to classification • 1. Based on pressure/stress and temperature: • Dynamic Metamorphism: deviatoric stress • Thermal Metamorphism: increase in T • Dynamo-thermal Metamorphism: P+T change

  4. Types of Metamorphism • 2. Based on setting • Contact Metamorphism • Regional Metamorphism • Hydrothermal Metamorphism • Fault-Zone Metamorphism • Impact or Shock Metamorphism

  5. Contact Metamorphism

  6. Contact Metamorphism 2 The size and shape of an aureole is controlled by: • Pluton: • Size • Shape • Orientation • Temperature • Composition • Country rocks: • Composition • Depth and metamorphic grade prior to intrusion • Permeability

  7. Contact -- rock types

  8. Contact -- rock types 2

  10. Regional/Orogenic Metamorphism

  11. Regional/Orogenic Metamorphism 2

  12. Regional/Orogenic Metamorphism 3

  13. Regional/Orogenic Metamorphism 4

  14. Regional: burial metamorphism

  17. Progressive Nature of Metamorphism Prograde Retrograde

  18. Prograde Metamorphism • Normally progress through series of mineral assemblages, for example: • epidote, chlorite, andalusite, muscovite, quartz, k-spar, and albite • sillimanite, plagioclase, cordierite, muscovite, quartz and k-spar • sillimanite, plagioclase, cordierite, quartz, and k-spar

  19. Prograde Metamorphism Prograde Retrograde

  20. Retrograde Metamorphism Prograde Retrograde http://www.und.nodak.edu/instruct/mineral/320petrology/opticalmin/chlorite.htm

  21. Common Prograde Sequence Index minerals make zones: • Chlorite zone. Pelitic rocks are slates or phyllites and typically contain chlorite, muscovite, quartz and albite • Biotite zone. Slates give way to phyllites and schists, with biotite, chlorite, muscovite, quartz, and albite • Garnet zone. Schists with conspicuous red almandine garnet, usually with biotite, chlorite, muscovite, quartz, and albite or oligoclase • Staurolite zone. Schists with staurolite, biotite, muscovite, quartz, garnet, and plagioclase. Some chlorite may persist • Kyanite zone. Schists with kyanite, biotite, muscovite, quartz, plagioclase, and usually garnet and staurolite • Sillimanite zone. Schists and gneisses with sillimanite, biotite, muscovite, quartz, plagioclase, garnet, and perhaps staurolite. Some kyanite may also be present (although kyanite and sillimanite are both polymorphs of Al2SiO5)
