Radiogenic isotope studies of crust-forming processes in the Lofoten-Vesterålen province of north Norway

Abstract:

The Lofoten-Vesterålen province of North Norway consists almost exclusively of Precambrian granulite-facies rocks. The oldest rocks in the province are monzonitic and dioritic migmatitic gneisses, the protoliths of which were formed at 2.7 Ga.

The migmatites are overlain by a series of supracrustal gneisses, from 2.1 Ga, largely volcanogenic in origin, but with interbedded marbles and banded ironstones. The first occurrence of marble in western Lofoten is reported. Deposition in a ...
