4 Plate tectonics of Canadian Cordillera Monger (1997) Metamorphism: M 1 –Low P, Low T - Thrusting M 2 –Low P, High T - Contact metam. ( Ma) M 3 –High P (8-10 kbar), High T ( °C) - magmatic loading; Ma M 4 – Contact metam. (92-84 Ma) Structure: D 1 – Orogen normal contraction (146–103 Ma) D 2 – Orogen parallel displacement (96-91 Ma) D 3 – Regional folding (96-91 Ma) D 4 – Dextral – reverse faulting (< 91Ma) Brown et al (2000) Mitrovic et al: Tectono - magmatic evolution...
