Reconnaissance Rb/Sr isochron study in the Bergen Arc System and regional implications

Abstract

On the basis of reconnaissance geo chronological investigations, and the preliminary results of the reinvestigation of the tectono/metamorphic patterns of the Bergen Arc System it is possible to present a series of results which help to clarify the relationships of the rocks units involved in this system. These results fundamentally affect the interpretation of the Bergen Arc System in Caledonian reconstructions of the geology of Western Norway.
