    The sequence of metamorphic facies observed in any metamorphic terrain, depends on the geothermal gradient that was present during metamorphism.&nbrp; A high geothermal gradient such as the one labeled "A" in the figure shown here, might be present around an igneous intrusion, and would result in metamorphic rocks belonging to the hornfels facies. The Lac St-Jean anorthosite massif underlies an area of o km2 and has been emplaced into migmatitic gneisses of the central granulite terrain of the Grenville Province of the Canadian.

    The southern margin of the Dharwar craton is bounded by granulite terrains including Niligiri, Salem-Shevaroy, Madras and Kollimalai massifs (Peucat et al., ).These granulite massifs comprise high-grade metamorphic rocks including charnockites, enderbites with interlayered amphibolites, metagabbros, anorthosites, volcanic tuffs and sediments (Peucat et al., ; Mohan et al., a,b Cited by: A rock or a rock complex may bear the effects of more than one metamorphic event (e.g. contact metamorphism following regional metamorphism), and thus the following types of metamorphism can be distinguished. Monometamorphism is a metamorphism resulting from one metamorphic File Size: KB.

    Definition of metamorphic grade The intensity or rank of metamorphism, measured by the amount or degree of difference between the original parent rock and the metamorphic rock. It indicates in a general way the pressure-temperature environment or facies in which the metamorphism took place. Spear, F. S. and Peacock, S.

Tectonic units containing these high grade rocks were emplaced amongst amphibolite facies rocks during an event of widespread shearing which has been dated at ± 4 Ma on the basis of a lower U–Pb zircon intercept age from one of the sheared gneisses and ± 3 Ma U–Pb ages from by: High-grade metamorphic terrains provide important information about the tectonic processes that result in crustal accretion and continental growth (Harley, ).

High grade metamorphic rocks form in places that are so hot the rocks almost melt, about degrees Celsius. One mineral that forms in this intense heat is sillimanite, which is often found in the rock gneiss.

Carter. Metamorphic rocks exposed on the surface indicate absence of fluids If excess fluid enriched in water is always available during meta-morphism, a chemical equilibrium must prevail, and hence high-grade metamorphic rocks cannot be present on the surface of the Earth.

As discussed previously, migmatites are small pods and lenses that occur in high grade metamorphic terranes that may represent melts of the surrounding metamorphic rocks. Injection of the these melts into pods and layers in the rock could also produce the discontinuous banding often seen in high grade metamorphic rocks.
