SHEAR HEATING AT THE OLYMPOS (GREECE) THRUST AND THE DEFORMATION PROPERTIES OF CARBONATES AT GEOLOGICAL STRAIN RATES

Abstract:

An example of thermal gradient inversion below a major thrust is described from the carbonates of the Olympos autochthon in northeast Greece. On the basis of several hundred probe analyses, temperatures have been determined across 3 km of structural height using calcite-dolomite geothermometry. The inversion is interpreted in terms of shear heating accompanying the Tertiary emplacement of the overlying metamorphic sheet. Significant heating is restricted to the uppermost 1 km of the Olympos p...
