Correlation of Dalradian Structures and Metamorphism

Publication: Scottish Journal of Geology
Volume 12
Pages 269 - 270

Abstract

SIRS,-In his recent study of the tectonic and metamorphic history of the Upper Findhorn, Piasecki (1975) notes that the earliest fabric is folded around the F1 folds and preserved within syn-F1 garnets, yet relegates this fabric to a stage in the development of the F1 deformation. This leads him to contrast the thermal history of the area (high grade during F1) with that of the Dalradian to the south-east (high grade during F2), and to relate it rather with that of the Moines to the north-west of the Great Glen. I would suggest that there is, in fact, no discrepancy here.
