High spatial 40Ar/39Ar dating of pseudotachylites: evidence for multiple phases of faulting within basement gneisses of the Outer Hebrides (UK)

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Pseudotachylites within the Neoarchaean to Palaeoproterozoic basement of the Lewisian Gneiss Complex have been analysed using the high spatial resolution 40Ar/39Ar UV laserprobe technique. It has been possible to measure 40Ar/39Ar age and ‘apparent' age variations that would be beyond resolution by lower spatial resolution or bulk 40Ar/39Ar dating methods. We report a range of complexities including significantly younger narrow (
