PRELIMINARY THERMAL MODEL FOR REGIONAL METAMORPHISM IN EASTERN ALPS

Abstract:

A one-dimensional conductive relaxation model is presented for the thermal history of terrains which have undergone tectonic burial. In particular the Tertiary history of the Eastern Alps is considered since the time interval between overthrusting and the peak of metamorphism (∼ 30 m.y.) and the metamorphic conditions are quite well known. These and other geological constraints dictate a range of solutions in which the greenschist-amphibolite facies metamorphism observed in the Eastern Alps i...
