Abstract

Foliation Intersection/Inflection Axes within porphyroblasts (FIAs) provide a quantitative approach to microstructural and metamorphic analysis that can be used to integrate multiple deformation and metamorphic events and develop lengthy PT path histories during orogenesis. This paper reviews applications of FIAs for determining (1) porphyroblast rotation vs. nonrotation; (2) inclusion trail orientations and orogenic processes involving changes in the direction of bulk horizontal shortening; (3) in situ age determinations for multiple deformation episodes; (4) P-T-t-d paths of poly-metamorphism in an orogenic belt; and (5) constraining relative plate movement paths within ancient orogens. Quantitative structural and metamorphic data correlated directly to relative plate motions, are currently allowing the tectonic reconstruction of multiply deformed and metamorphosed terrains in orogens around the world.
