Magnetic Anisotropy of the Westboro Formation in the Middlesex Fells Reservation, Stoneham, Ma: the Style of Deformation of a Small Piece of Avalon.

Lowe, Katherine E.

Abstract: The Westboro Formation in eastern Massachusetts is a metasedimentary rock unit of Proterozoic age that makes up part of the Avalon Terrane. Anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility was used to study tectonic deformation of the formation. Supporting previous work by Bailey et al. (1984), limited deformation was found in the form of shearing along bedding. Overall, the deformation was weak wi... read more
