A pluton (pronounced "PLOO-tonn") is a deep-seated intrusion of igneous rock, a body that made its way into pre-existing rocks in a melted form several kilometers underground in the Earth's crust and then that depth, the magma cooled and crystallized very slowly, allowing the mineral grains to grow large and tightly interlocked — typical of plutonic : Andrew Alden.

The Metamorphic and Plutonic Rocks of the Southernmost Sierra Nevada, California, and Their Tectonic Framework By DONALD C. ROSS U.S. GEOLOGICAL SURVEY PROFESSIONAL PAPER UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE, WASHINGTON: Cited by:

A grain alignment produced in this way is called a metamorphic fabric—one of hallmarks of metamorphic rock. If you find a crystalline rock with a fabric, it's most likely metamorphic, but note that non-metamorphic intrusives can acquire flow fabrics through magma currents present prior to freezing. Glossary For each entry the chapter in which the word first appears is shown in parentheses. A. aa (4) a lava flow that solidifies with a blocky high-relief surface. ablation (16) melting of ice in the context of glaciation. ablation till (16) till that is formed when englacial and supraglacial sediments are deposited because the ice that was supporting them melts.

The southern part of the body is zoned from pyroxene diorite in its core, through hornblende diorite, to biotite-hornblende tonalite.

Tonalite forms about two thirds of the pluton's area, forming a nearly continuous rim. The pluton intrudes upper Paleozic.

In this paper, we summarize the timing and kinematics of extension and exhumation of midcrustal rocks in Eocene metamorphic core complexes located north and south of the Lewis and Clark fault major metamorphic core complexes and detachment fault systems adjacent to the Lewis and Clark fault zone include, on the northern side, the Priest River complex; on the southern side, the.

Paleomagnetism of the Middle Miocene Rogers Creek pluton (16 Ma) in the central-southern Coast Belt was utilized to test the tilt hypothesis. Well-grouped stable primary magnetizations have been isolated in 11 sites with both normal and reverse by: 3.

Metamorphic supracrustal rocks in the Cogburn Creek area belong to the Cogburn Creek Group and the Settler Schist. These are separated by a melange zone, which has been correlated with the Shuksan thrust zone and contains Baird Metadiorite and ultramafic rocks, and intruded by the Spuzzum batholith and minor younger granodiorite.

The pluton's close spatial relation with the SSPM pluton suggests that an important drag along the eastern margin of El Potrero, associated with diapiric ascent or by westward lateral-oblique expansion of the large SSPM pluton, may have provided a mechanism to tilt a large crustal segment delimited by the MMT in the east and the Rosarito fault Cited by: 9.

These can range from textures similar to the original protolith at low grades of metamorphism, to textures that are purely produced during metamorphism and leave the rock with little resemblance to the original protolith. Textural features of metamorphic rocks have been discussed in the previous.
