A Paleoproterozoic intra-arc basin associated with a juvenile source in the Southern Brasilia Orogen : application of U-Pb and Hf-Nd isotopic analyses to provenance studies of complex areas
(2016-05) - Journal article,
Early Proterozoic sedimentary basins are an important record of crust generation processes and consequently a fundamental key to unravelling Earth's evolution through geological time. Sediments within the basins are typically ...
Detrital zircon record and tectonic setting
(2012-10) - Journal article,
Detrital zircon spectra reflect the tectonic setting of the basin in which they are deposited. Convergent plate margins are characterized by a large proportion of zircon ages close to the depositional age of the sediment, ...
Earth's middle age
(2014) - Journal article,
Earth's middle age, extending from 1.7 to 0.75 Ga, was characterized by environmental, evolutionary, and lithospheric stability that contrasts with the dramatic changes in preceding and succeeding eras. The period is marked ...
The continental record and the generation of continental crust
(2013-01) - Journal article,
Continental crust is the archive of Earth history. The spatial and temporal distribution of Earth's record of rock units and events is heterogeneous; for example, ages of igneous crystallization, metamorphism, continental ...
Temporal relations between mineral deposits and global tectonic cycles
(Geological Society, 2013-10) - Book item,
Mineral deposits are heterogeneously distributed in both space and time, with variations reflecting tectonic setting, evolving environmental conditions, as in the atmosphere and hydrosphere, and secular changes in the ...
