Geothermometry of Acadian Metamorphic Rocks in Massachusetts: Reexamining the Established Geothermal Gradients in Southern Massachusetts

Levenstein, Brandon M.


  • New geothermometry of Acadian metapelites in south-central Massachusetts shows that peak metamorphic conditions reached significantly higher temperatures than previously reported. Prior geothermometry in the region used the Fe-Mg exchange thermometers to establish peak temperatures. Retrograde re-equilibration of Fe and Mg in minerals makes it difficult to preserve peak temperatures as high as ... read more
