  1. 1. How do metamorphic fluids move through rocks? : An investigation of timescales, infiltration mechanisms and mineralogical controls

    Författare :Barbara I. Kleine; Alasdair D. L. Skelton; John C. Schumacher; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Metamorphic fluid flow; fluid-rock interaction; fluid infiltration mechanisms; fluid flux rates; thermodynamic modeling; reaction front propagation; fluid flux calculation; Geology; geologi;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis aims to provide a better understanding of the role of mountain building in the carbon cycle. The amount of CO2 released into the atmosphere due to metamorphic processes is largely unknown. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Fluid-induced alteration of metasedimentary rocks in the Scottish Highlands

    Författare :Alexander Lewerentz; Alasdair Skelton; Patrick Crill; Charlotte Möller; Jay Ague; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; metamorphic fluids; metamorphic fluid flow; fluid-rock interaction; metamorphic fluid fluxes; Geology; geologi;

    Sammanfattning : Fluids, mainly H2O and CO2, are released from H- and C-bearing phases during prograde metamorphism. Because of the buoyancy of these fluids, they rise within the crust towards the surface of the Earth. Metamorphic fluids take advantage of permeable horizons, shear zones, fold hinges, fractures, and are channelled into high-flux zones. LÄS MER

  3. 3. The metamorphic history of Naxos (central Cyclades, Greece) : Deciphering the Oligocene and Miocene exhumation events

    Författare :Alexandre Peillod; Uwe Ring; Alasdair Skelton; Arne Willner; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Cycladic Blueschist Unit; exhumation; fluid flow; geothermobarometry; Hellenide orogen; Rb-Sr dating; subduction-zone metamorphism; Heat flow; Lower crust; extensional domain; Metamorphic core complex; Geology; geologi;

    Sammanfattning : High pressure, low temperature (HP-LT) rocks observed at the surface of the Earth are evidence ofpast subduction zones. Understanding the tectonics processes that control the exhumation of HP-LT metamorphic rocks in these subduction zones requires full comprehension of the pressure-temperature-time (P–T–t) cycle that the rocks experienced.

  4. 4. How do fluids move through rocks? : High fluxes of CO2 in the Earth's crust

    Författare :Barbara Kleine; Alasdair Skelton; Iain Pitcairn; Sandra Piazolo; Jaroslaw Majka; Zhihong Zhao; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; metamorphic fluid flow; blueschist preservation; fluid-rock interaction; Geology; geologi;

    Sammanfattning : Metamorphic hydrous, CO2-bearing fluids play a critical role in the global carbon cycle. However, how big this influence is on the global carbon cycle and therefore on global climatic processes, is unknown. The actual amount of CO2 which is released into the atmosphere due to metamorphic processes is still debated. LÄS MER

  5. 5. The dynamic emplacement of felsic magma in the upper crust

    Författare :Tobias Mattsson; Steffi Burchardt; Karen Mair; Christoph Breitkreuz; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; laccolith; cryptodome; magma emplacement; magma flow; magma rheology; granite; rhyolite; pluton; AMS; XCT; thermobarometry; Geovetenskap med inriktning mot mineralogi; petrologi och tektonik; Earth Science with specialization in Mineral Chemistry; Petrology and Tectonics;

    Sammanfattning : Felsic magma intrudes earth’s upper crust through a variety of mechanisms. Magma intrusion growth and shape have mainly been explained in terms of host rock properties and intrusion depth, while considering the magma as an overpressurised fluid. LÄS MER
