Dating by 40Ar/39 At laser probe mass spectrometry can provide high spatial resolution data on in-situ K-bearing minerals, such as micas and amphiboles. When used in conjunction with careful petrographic investigations, separate generations of minerals related to different metamorphic conditions may be accurately dated. This can provide a detailed history of metamorphism and deformation, and ultimately provide data as to the dynamics of erogenic processes. This project has determined that 40Ar/39Ar laser probe mass spectrometry can be successfully utilized to determine prograde histories of metamorphic rocks.
