P-T-t conditions of high temperature metamorphism in the Shuswap Complex, British Columbia

The Shuswap Metamorphic Complex (SMC) in south-central BC is composed of highly deformed, deep crustal rocks representing the result of a dynamic and complex collisional tectonic environment. This project aims to quantify the pressure, temperature, and timing of metamorphism, deformation, and exhumation across a transect of the SMC located between Sicamous and Revelstoke. Results will include a synthesis of structural, petrological, and thermochronological data collected through laboratory techniques and detailed field observations. Conclusions aim to constrain models of the tectono-metamorphic evolution of this area, and allow for comparison with similar regions in the Coastal range and Northern Cordillera.
