An Eocene/Oligocene blueschist-/greenschist-facies PT loop from Naxos Island, (Cyclades, Greece): Deformation-related re-equilibration vs thermal relaxation (English)
Abstract [en]

Combining petrological and geochronological data we were able to show that rocks in south Naxos completed a full blueschist-/greenschist-facies metamorphic loop in about 10 Myr, distinctly faster than hitherto believed. We show that the high-pressure rocks reached peak pressure (16.3±0.9 kbar - 619 ±32°C) between 40.5±1.0 and 38.3±0.5 Ma and were re-equilibrated in the middle crust (3.8±1.1 kbar - 384±30 °C) under greenschist-facies metamorphism during in the Oligocene ~32 Ma. Our data indicate that this exhumation occurred at rates of 7.4±4.6 km Ma-1. Therefore, the Oligocene greenschist-facies overprint of the blueschist-facies rocks from south Naxos is unrelated to the Miocene amphibolite-/greenschist-facies metamorphism observed in Naxos.

Abstract [sv]

Genom att kombinera petrologiska och geokronologiska data kan vi visa att bergarter på södra Naxos fullföljt en fullständig blåskiffer-/grönskiffer-facies metamorfisk loop på 10 Ma. Detta är mycket snabbare änn vad man tidigare trott. Vi visar att högtrycks bergarter nådde maximalt tryck (16.3±0.9 kbar - 619 ±32°C) mellan 40.5±1.0 och 38.3±0.5 Ma och var åter i jämnvikt i mitten av jordskorpan (3.8±1.1 kbar - 384±30 °C) under grönskiffer-facies metamorfism under Oligocen vid ~32 Ma.Våra data visar att exhumeringen skedde med hastigheter av 7.4±4.6 km Ma-1. Därför är den Oligocena grönskiffer-facies ersättningen av blåskiffer-facies på södra Naxos ej relaterad till den Miocena amfibolit-/grönskiffer-facies som observerats på Naxos.

Abstract [fr]

En combinant les données pétrologiques et géochronologiques, nous avons été en mesure de montrer que les roches du Sud Naxos ont effectué un trajet complet en métamorphisme schiste bleue/schiste vert en 10 Ma, distinctement plus rapide que ce qui était admis jusqu’alors. Nous montrons que les roches de haute pression ont atteint un pic de pression (16.3±0.9 kbar - 619 ±32°C) entre 40.5±1.0 et 38.3±0.5 Ma et ont été rééquilibrées en croûte moyenne (3.8±1.1 kbar - 384±30 °C) en métamorphisme de facies schiste vert pendant l’Oligocène ~32 Ma. Nos données indiquent que cette exhumation a une vitesse de 7.4±4.6 km Ma-1. Par conséquent, la surimpression des roches de haute pression en métamorphisme de facies schiste vert dans le sud de Naxos n’est pas à relier au métamorphisme de facies amphibolite/schiste vert du Miocène observé à Naxos.
