Summary : Ultrahigh Pressure Metamorphism (UHPM) is a fast growing discipline that was established 25 years ago after discoveries of high pressure minerals, coesite and diamonds. The current explosion of research on UHMP terranes reflects their significance for understanding large scale mantle dynamics, major elements of plate tectonics such as continental collisions, deep subduction and exhumation, mountains building, geochemical recycling 'from surface to the core', and a deep storage of light elements participating in green-house effects in the atmosphere. This book provides insights into the formation of diamond and coesite at very high pressures and explores new ideas regarding the tectonic setting of this style of metamorphism. Important, authoritative and comprehensive one-stop resource for the growing ultrahigh pressure metamorphism UHPM research community A forward-looking approach founded upon a detailed historical perspective on UHPM presents the trends in discovery, methodology and theory over the last 25 years, allowing readers to gain a clear understanding of the current trends and the approaches that will shape the science in the future A highly diverse set of articles, covering a wide range of methods and sub-disciplines

Summary : Ultrahigh-pressure metamorphism has been recorded in Eo-Alpine eclogites and garnet peridotites from the Pohorje Mts., Slovenia, belonging to the Eastern Alps. Eclogite bodies are hosted in continental crustal rocks, and are closely associated with meta- ultrabasic rocks, predominantly serpentinized dunites and harzburgites with garnet peridotite remnants. The eclogites contain a peak metamorphic assemblage of garnet, omphacite, kyanite and phengite. Pyrope-rich garnet is unzoned and almost free of inclusions. The non-stoichiometric supersilicic omphacites contain up to 5 mol% of Ca- Eskola molecule. Such clinopyroxenes are known to be stable exclusively at high- pressure conditions exceeding 3.o GPa. Their breakdown during decompression resulted in exsolution of quartz rods and needles that are oriented parallel to omphacite c-axis. Phengite contains up to 3.5 Si pfu. Polycrystalline quartz inclusions in primary minerals are surrounded by radial fractures and often exhibit microtextures diagnostic of the former presence of coesite. The absence of coesite is a consequence of near-isothermal decompression during the first stages of exhumation. Eclogites are rich in Mg0 and have Ca0and A1203 contents consistent with mafic magmatic rocks. They are more depleted than MORB with positive Sr and Pb anomalies, and with Cs, Rb, Ba enrichments. Precursor rocks were plagioclase-bearing (gabbroic) cumulates from depleted mantle- derived melts, which most probably formed in the Permiantime. Garnet peridotites show signs of a complex four-stage metamorphic history. The protolith stage is represented by a low-P high-T assemblage of olivine + Al-rich orthopyroxene + Al-rich clinopyroxene + Cr-spinel. Due to metamorphism, primary clinopyroxene shows exsolutions of garnet, orthopyroxene, amphibole, Cr-spinel and ilmenite. The UHP metamorphicstage is defined by the assemblage garnet + olivine + Al-poor orthopyroxene + clinopyroxene + Cr-spinel. Subsequent decompression and final retrogression stage resulted in formation of kelyphitic rims around garnet and crystallization of tremolite, chlorite, serpentine and talc. The garnet peridotites are relatively rich in A1203, Ca0 and Sr compared to primitive mantle, where as REE commonly show depleted patterns with positive Eu anomalies. Most probably garnet peridotites represent depleted mantle rocks that became refertilized within the plagioclase stability field before tectonic incorporation in the subducting continental slab, or, alternatively, they might carry the signature of metasomatism by melts derived from a plagioclase-bearing source, possibly even the eclogites. P-T estimates for eclogites and garnet peridotites indicate that the peak of metamorphism reached over 3 GPa and 800 °C in the eclogites and close to 4 GPa and 900 °C in the garnet peridotites, well within the UHP stability field. Eclogites and garnet peridotites did not share the same P-T path until the incorporation of peridotite from the mantle wedge into the subducting crust. The, rocks of the Pohorje Mts. record the highest-pressure conditions of all Eo-Alpine metamorphism in the Alps. Petrographic and geochemical evidence shows that these conditions were reached during deep subduction (at least 100 km) of continental slab. The southward increase inpeak pressure from approximately 2 GPa in the Koralpe and Saualpe to 3 or 4 GPa in the Pohorje suggests the south to south-eastern dip of the Cretaceous intra-Alpine subduction zone. Ultrahigh-pressure rocks of Pohorje were probably exhumed by ,slab extraction", that is, the downward removal of the mantle and lower crustal wedge overlying the subducted rocks.

Summary : Volume 37 of Reviews in Mineralogy, divided into three sections, begins with an overview (Chapter 1) of the remarkable advances in the ability to subject minerals-not only as pristine single-crystal samples but also complex, natural mineral assemblages-to extreme pressure-temperature conditions in the laboratory. These advances parallel the development of an arsenal of analytical methods for measuring mineral behavior under those conditions. This sets the stage for section two (Chapters 2-8) which focuses on high-pressure minerals in their geological setting as a function of depth. This top-down approach begins with what we know from direct sampling of high-pressure minerals and rocks brought to the surface to detailed geophysical observations of the vast interior. The third section (Chapters 9-19) presents the material fundamentals, starting from properties of a chemical nature, such as crystal chemistry, thermochemistry, element partitioning, and melting, and moving toward the domain of mineral physics such as melt properties, equations of state, elasticity, rheology, vibrational dynamics, bonding, electronic structure, and magnetism. The Review thus moves from the complexity of rocks to their mineral components and finally to fundamental properties arising directly from the play of electrons and nuclei. This volume was prepared for a short course by the same title, organized by Russell J. Hemley and Ho-kwang Mao and sponsored by the Mineralogical Society of America, December 4-6, 1998 on the campus of the University of California at Davis.

Summary : 2Gpa has increased to more than 15. This indicates that subduction of continental fragments to depths of 100-150 km may have played a significant role in the formation of mountain belts. This volume brings together the geochemical, geophysical and geodynamical approaches to study the processes active during ultrahigh-pressure (UHP) tectonics. The collection of papers demarkates the frontier of our understanding of the creation, preservation, and exhumation of ultrahigh-pressure rocks. Audience: This volume will be of interest to any earth scientist interested in ultrahigh pressure processes and the formation and modification of continental crust.

Summary : Recent discoveries of diamond and coesite in the ultrahigh- pressure (UHP) metamorphosed supracrustal rocks have provoked a new challenge to present-day geodynamic ideas. A worldwide shift towards a new paradigm on the Earth's dynamics is imminent. Facing the new challenge, Chinese geologists have been taking an active role. The Dabieshan-Sulu region, the largest and best exposed UHP belt in the world, has attracted international attention. This comprehensive book describes many aspects of the UHP rocks in the Dabieshan-Sulu region, including the geotectonic setting, mode of occurrence, mineralogy and petrology, isotope chronology, major and trace element chemistry, and metamorphic PTt path. The possible geodynamic mechanisms involved in the deep subduction and rapid exhumation of UHP rocks are also discussed. This book will be of particular interest to researchers and graduate students of metamorphic petrology and global tectonics.

Summary : Volume 56 of the Reviews in Mineralogy and Geochemistry reviews the current state of knowledge on the epidote minerals with special emphasis on the advances that were made since the comprehensive review of Deer et al. (1986). In the Introduction, we review the structure, optical data and crystal chemistry of this mineral group, all of which form the basis for understanding much of the following material in the volume. In addition, we provide some information on special topics, such as morphology and growth, deformation behavior, and gemology. Thermodynamic properties (Chapter 2, Gottschalk), the spectroscopy of the epidote minerals (Chapter 3, Liebscher) and a review of the experimental studies (Chapter 4, Poli and Schmidt) constitute the first section of chapters. These fields are closely related, and all three chapters show the significant progress over the last years, but that some of the critical questions such as the problem of miscibility and miscibility gaps are still not completely solved. This section concludes with a review of fluid inclusion studies (Chapter 5, Klemd), a topic that turned out to be of large interest for petrogenetic interpretation, and leads to the description of natural epidote occurrences in the second section of the book. These following chapters review the geological environments of the epdiote minerals, from low temperature in geothermal fields (Chapter 6, Bird and Spieler), to common metamorphic rocks (Chapter 7, Grapes and Hoskin) and to high- and ultrahigh pressure (Chapter 8, Enami, Liou and Mattinson) and the magmatic regime (Chapter 9, Schmidt and Poli). Allanite (Chapter 10, Gieré and Sorensen) and piemontite (Chapter 11, Bonazzi and Menchetti), on which a large amount of information is now available, are reviewed in separate chapters. Finally trace element (Chapter 12, Frei, Liebscher, Franz and Dulski) and isotopic studies, both stable and radiogenic isotopes (Chapter 13, Morrison) are considered. We found it unavoidable that there is some overlap between individual chapters. This is an inherited problem in a mineral group such as the epidote minerals, which forms intensive solid solutions between the major components of rock forming minerals as well as with trace elements.

Summary : "High pressure (HP) and ultrahigh pressure (UHP) metamorphic rocks play a key role in understanding the tectonic evolution of orogenic belts. They have typically experienced complex changes during subduction and exhumation processes arising from recrystallization, deformation, fluid-rock interactions and even partial melting, and may therefore carry valuable records of evolving geodynamic systems in an orogenic belt. This special publication addresses the current work on HP-UHP metamorphism and its relation to the tectonic evolution of orogenic belts. This special publication contains fifteen papers covering the important orogenic belts of the Himalaya, Dabie-Sulu, Tian Shan, North Qaidam and others that have been grouped into three parts: (I) new developments in the determination of metamorphic pressure-temperature (PT) conditions and their timing, (II) overview papers of well-known HP-UHP metamorphic belts and (III) research papers for some newly discovered HP-UHP belts.

Summary : The evolution and differentiation of the continental crust pose fundamental questions that are being addressed by new research concerning melting, melt extraction and transport through the crust, and the effect of melt on crustal rheology. Insights into crustal processes have been triggered by combined field observations and laboratory experiments, supported by developments in numerical modelling. Opening chapters cover the structure of the continents, controls on heat production and the composition, differentiation and evolution of continental crust. The role of arc magmatism in the Phanerozoic and crustal generation in the Archean are addressed. Two regional examples illustrate the modification and differentiation of continental crust. Process-oriented chapters cover melting, melt extraction and migration, and crustal rheology. The final chapters review the emplacement and growth of plutons and outline a modeling approach to the physical controls on crustal differentiation. This is a valuable summary of recent advances for graduate students and research workers.
