ArticleLate Cretaceous-early Cenozoic tectonic evolution of the southern California margin inferred from provenance of trench and forearc sedimentsGehrels, George E.During the Late Cretaceous to early Cenozoic, southern California was impacted by two anomalous tectonic events: (1) underplating of the oceanic Pelona-Orocopia-Rand schists beneath North American arc crust and craton; and (2) removal of the western m . . .
ArticleKylander-Clark, AndrewThe exhumed Fiordland sector of Zealandia offers a deep-crustal view into the life cycle of a Cordilleran-type orogen from final magmatic construction to extensional orogenic collapse. We integrate U-Pb thermochronologic data from metamorphic zircon a . . .
ArticleThe Fine Gold Intrusive Suite: The roles of basement terranes and magma source development in the Early Cretaceous Sierra Nevada batholithLackey, Jade StarThe Fine Gold Intrusive Suite is one of the largest (>2000 km2) and oldest intrusive complexes in the Sierra Nevada batholith (California, USA), and therefore contains a wealth of information about nascent magmatic processes in a convergent margin arc . . .
