Ages, Geochemistry and Metamorphism of Neoarchean Basement by Meiling Wu

By Meiling Wu

Focusing on problems with whilst and the way Archean crust within the craton was once shaped, this PhD thesis e-book offers significant examine results of box dependent metamorphic, geochemical and geochronological investigations on Meso-Neoarchean basement rocks from Shandong Province within the japanese Block of the North China Craton. in response to significant findings and new facts, the writer proposes that the formation and evolution of Archean crust was once ruled via mantle plumes, now not by means of plate tectonics. As one of many oldest cratonic blocks on this planet containing rocks as previous as 3.85 billion years, the formation and evolution of North China Craton remains to be debatable. for that reason this booklet can be of price to someone drawn to the evolution of cratonic blocks and Precambrian geology.
