Increased lower‐crustal density has also been inferred for other basins such as the Michigan [Nunn and Sleep, ], Amazon [Nunn and Aires, ] and Barents Sea basins [Ebbing et al., ]. The presence of increased densities in the lower crust can be explained as the combined effect of magmatic intrusion, partial melting of metamorphic Cited by:   In addition, lower-crustal electrical anisotropy may result from preferred orientations of fluidized material or graphitized shear zones. The fossil Waterberg Fault/Omaruru Lineament in Namibia was imaged as a subvertical, km-deep, km-wide zone of high and anisotropic conductivity, which was explained by the presence of graphite along Cited by:   Detailed field mapping reveals that the Sesia Zone is subdivided into two complexes with the Barmet Shear Zone (BSZ) outlining the tectonic contact between them.

The Ivrea-Verbano Zone (IVZ, Southern Alps), in northern Italy, is part of the pre-Alpine basement characterized by the exposure of a well-preserved lower crustal section. The middle-lower crustal rocks of the IVZ have commonly been subdivided in three major units, from bottom to top: i) different ultramafic mantle bodies; ii) the Mafic Complex. This book provides detailed accounts of the discoveries of diamond and coesite in crustal rocks and provides insights regarding their formation at very high pressures. The formation of these minerals is related to subduction and continental collision and the tectonics, petrological and mineralogical conditions of diamond and coesite formation.   Likewise, the similarity of lower crustal rocks in the upper part of the Dent Blanche klippe (the Valpelline Series) to the pre‐Alpine IIDK lithologies [Compagnoni et al., ] betrays a common origin within the former passive margin, possibly beneath the Cited by:
