Field relations show that the source of heat that produced the argon depletion aureole was the fault itself. 25 Ma (Sutherland and Norris, 1995). Mylonite is a metamorphic rock formed by ductile deformation during intense shearing encountered during folding and faulting, a process termed cataclastic or dynamic metamorphism. The Alpine Fault, which runs for about 600km up the spine of the South Island, is one of the world’s major geological features. Fission-track analysis of the Atotsugawa Fault (Hida Metamorphic Belt, central Japan): fault-related thermal anomaly and activation history. The thermal structure of collisional orogens as a response to accretion, erosion, and radiogenic heating. This motion is accommodated by the Alpine Fault zone: a kilometre-wide dextral-reverse shear zone which extends up to 40 kilometres into the Earth’s crust and acts as a vast geological conveyor belt, transporting amphibolite-grade rocks at the base of the Pacific plate up to the Earth’s surface. good indicators of metamorphic grades and zones of metamorphism. The Southern Alps have been uplifted on the fault over the last 12 million years in a series of earthquakes. The most important agents of metamorphism include temperature, pressure, and fluids. The wordmetamorphism comes from ancient Greek words for "change" (meta) and "form" (morph). Ductile structures in the greenschist facies rocks of the Alpine Schist that lie in the headwaters of the Whataroa, Callery, and Balfour valleys formed during Mesozoic deformation, similar to those in the Otago Schist to the south. The central Alpine Fault exposes rocks that have been deformed in the middle crust as recently as recently as 3 … From the crest of the range westward to the Alpine Fault the grade of metamorphism increases from indurated sedimentary rocks to high-grade schists and gneisses.

The Australian plate is sliding horizontally towards the north-east, at the same time as the Pacific plate is pushing up, forming the Southern Alps. X-Y is the Haast River Section of Figure 21-11. Temperatures, heat flux, and frictional stress near major thrust faults. 20 km from the fault. If you do not receive an email within 10 minutes, your email address may not be registered, However, the bulk of the uplift, approximately 25 km, took place in the past 10 m.y. As mountains are built along tectonic plates, preexisting rocks affected by temperature or pressure can create entirely new kinds of rocks. Changes produced by surface conditions such as compaction are usually excluded. It is probable that prograde metamorphism in the root zone of the Southern Alps releases metamorphic fluids that at some region rise vertically rather than following the trace of the Alpine Fault up to the surface, owing to the combined effects of the fault, the disturbed isotherms under the Southern Alps, and the brittle–ductile transition. during Kaikoura Orogenic uplift on the Alpine Fault. X-Y is the Haast River Section of Figure 21-11. The obliquely-convergent plate boundary in the South Island of New Zealand: implications for ancient collision zones. https://www.sciencelearn.org.nz/resources/330-the-alpine-fault Frictional heating during this episode produced the argon depletion. Learn about our remote access options. Four zones of progressive metamorphism are recognized: the Chlorite, Biotite, Almandine, and Oligoclase zones. Adopting a friction model for the fault and applying the known geological history of motion of the Alpine fault, we show that the metamorphism resulted from frictional heating during the 360-km right lateral slip on the Alpine fault during the Mesozoic (Rangitata) period of fault motion (140-80 m.y. Geochronological evidence for ∼ 530–550 Ma juxtaposition of two Proterozoic metamorphic terranes in the Musgrave Ranges, Central Australia. ; Harper and Landis 1967). By R. V. Rose. It’s the "on-land" boundary of the Pacific and Australian Plates. S3 schistosity, L3 lineations and F3 folds are associated with strain in, and adjacent to the Alpine Fault Zone. The supposed irreversible nature of this process has allowed the degree of graphite crystallinity to be calibrated as an indicator of the peak temperatures reached during progressive metamorphism.

Four zones of progressive metamorphism are recognized: the Chlorite, Biotite, Almandine, and Oligoclase zones. In the Southern Alps there is a significant uplift following the Cretaceous Rangitata Orogeny, probably in the order of 11–15 km. The mountains are rising at 7 millimetres a year, but erosion wears them down at a similar rate. This uplift has exposed the Alpine schists, which have been metamorphosed from the adjacent Torlesse graywackes. Metamorphism, mineralogical and structural adjustments of solid rocks to physical and chemical conditions differing from those under which the rocks originally formed.

This displacement is compatible with distributed lateral and vertical shear within the mylonite zone since inception of significant convergence on the plate boundary in the late Neogene. The continued growth of the Southern Alps is somewhat unique in that these mountains lie where the Pacific and Australian plates collide and simultaneously slide past one another along a large transform fault called the Alpine Fault.

McGraw-Hill. Adopting a friction model for the fault and applying the known geological history of motion of the Alpine fault, we show that the metamorphism resulted from frictional heating during the 360‐km right lateral slip on the Alpine fault during the Mesozoic (Rangitata) period of fault motion (140–80 m.y.

Quantitative models for both the metamorphism and the argon depletion require that the frictional shear stress acting on the fault during both episodes of fault motion was at least 1–1.5 kbars. McGraw-Hill. Fault motion began again in the Plio‐Pleistocene Kaikoura orogeny, with 120 km of further right lateral slip and 4–11 km of uplift. Journal of Geomagnetism and Aeronomy, Nonlinear Geophysics, Marine Geology and Geophysics, Physical Geochronologic constraints of the uplift and metamorphism along the Alpine Fault, South Island, New Zealand. Objects, Solid Surface It is probable that prograde metamorphism in the root zone of the Southern Alps releases metamorphic fluids that at some region rise vertically rather than following the trace of the Alpine Fault up to the surface, owing to the combined effects of the fault, the disturbed isotherms under the Southern Alps, and the brittle–ductile transition. Metamorphism in geology is when one type of rock is transformed into another type of rock called a metamorphic rock. Learn more. It forms a transform boundary between the Pacific Plate and the Indo-Australian Plate. and you may need to create a new Wiley Online Library account. Cooper (1970, 1972; Cooper and Lovering 1970) studied in detail the metamorphism of an area south of the Haast River and showed that the lamprophyric suite included dykes varying in composition from mica peridotite through lamprophyre to tinguaite, Eos, Transactions American Geophysical Union.

A general westward increase in metamorphic grade is locally disrupted and repeated by several late metamorphic faults. Mechanics Problems in Geodynamics Part II. During metamorphism the mineral content and texture of the protolith are changed due to changes in the physical and chemical environment of the rock. By the use of field criteria this zone of decreasing metamorphism has been divided into five metamorphic belts. Geophysics, Biological Mountain formation refers to the geological processes that underlie the formation of mountains.These processes are associated with large-scale movements of the Earth's crust (tectonic plates).Folding, faulting, volcanic activity, igneous intrusion and metamorphism can all be parts of the orogenic process of mountain building. Quantifying magnitudes of shear heating in metamorphic systems. A metamorphic rock used to be some other type of rock, but it was changed inside the Earth to become a new type of rock. These metamorphic zone boundaries are subparallel to the fault for 350 km along the strike. The Torlesse Composite Terrane has undergone metamorphism and been transformed into Haast Schist. You could not be signed in. The rupture will produce one of the biggest earthquakes since European settlement of New Zealand, and it will have a major impact on the lives of many people. The Alpine (S 3) foliation in the nonmylonitic part of the Alpine Schist near Franz Josef and Fox Glaciers is near-vertical and strikes ∼040 in contrast to the Alpine Fault, which strikes ∼050 (Fig. Shear heating associated with movement along the Alpine Fault, New Zealand. Mode of crustal shortening adjacent to the Alpine Fault, New Zealand. If, alternatively, it is assumed that all fault motion took place in the last 30 m.y., this does not change our conclusion with respect to the stress required for the argon depletion.
