THE ACADIAN THERMAL HISTORY OF THE MERRIMACK SYNCLINORIUM IN NEW HAMPSHIRE

Abstract:

The thermal history of the Acadian metamorphism of the Merrimack Synclinorium is examined to determine the conditions required for the high grade metamorphism of the region. Constraints are provided by metamorphic pressure estimates, by information on the erosional history, and by present day heat flow determinations in the Synclinorium. One-dimensional heat transfer calculations show that the high grade metamorphism could readily have been produced during thermal relaxation of the thickened ...
