    • Thermal Structure of Mid-Crustal Shear Zones 

      Mazza, Sarah Elizabeth (Virginia Tech, 2013-06-28)
             Analysis of quartz c-axis fabrics and microstructures from ductily deformed rocks allows for the examination of the kinematics associated with crustal deformation. This thesis expands on the current knowledge of the ...
    • Using Metamorphic Textures to Infer Deformation and Thermodynamic Histories 

      McCall, Kristen Elaine (Virginia Tech, 2014-05-20)
      Garnet porphyroblasts are commonly used to determine P-T conditions in metamorphic rock assemblages. However, the actual process of porphyroblast nucleation is still poorly understood and garnet growth may occur at different ...
