About the Edition

The origin of anorthosites is a major unsolved petrogenetic problem in igneous petrology. For most of the numerous types of anorthosite that occur on Earth (and on other planets as well), we cannot agree as to their parental magma composi- tions, the sources and methods of generation of these mag- mas, the mechanism of plagioclase accumulation, or their tectonic setting. This book represents the only comprehensi- ve review of what is known and unknown about all anorthosite types, both terrestrial and extraterrestrial. Descriptive, interpretative, and speculative information is given for all types of anorthosite, including therecently discovered an- orthositic meteorites from the Moon. The book is generously illustrated, with photographs and diagrams at all scales fromphotomicrographs to satellite imagery. There are ex- haustive tabulations ofterrestrial anorthosite occurrences, giving their important attributes. A final chapter contains a synthesis of current knowledge and thinking on anorthosi- tes in general, some speculations on their significance in Earth and planetary history, and suggestions for future re- search. This book will be an essential source not only for those active in anorthosite studies, but also for resear- chers and students interested in the broader aspects of Earth and planetary history.

Part of the Minerals and Rocks book series (MINERALS, volume 21) Abstract Interestingly, the early studies of Archean anorthosite were made on occurrences at some of the highest metamorphic grades, for example in Madagascar, India, South Africa, and West Greenland (e.g., Lacroix ; Sohnge ).Author: Lewis D.

Ashwal. The described anorthosites are confined to the Greenland equivalent of the Kenoran structural province between 61°N and 65°N lat. in southern West Greenland. They occur in gneisses as stratigraphic units up to 2 km wide and can be traced for about km in West Greenland.

The data suggest that there is a close genetic connection between the anorthosites and a granulite complex, which implies that the anorthosites have an Archean origin.

Decompression breakdown of garnet and Tschermakitic pyroxene is common in the anorthosites of the Caledonian Jotun nappes, but is absent in the Bergen anorthosites. This difference suggests there was no rapid vertical movement in the P-T history of Bergen anorthosites, and thus that they are tectonically distinct from the anorthosites of the.

Moreover, anorthosites consist mostly of coarse-grained minerals, which means that they must have cooled off slowly from the melt, and thus not on the lunar surface. The physical texture of the lunar rocks is of even more interest than the chemical composition because of what the texture reveals about the origin of the lunar surface formations.

Anorthosite is a plutonic igneous rock, primarily consisting of plagioclase feldspars with no more than 10% of mafic components such as ilmenite, olivene, magnetite or pyroxene.

Anorthosites are typically gray or bluish, and are rather course grained.

Proterozoic anorthosites in the Grenville and Nain Provinces of eastern North America crystallized between about and Ma, and some were metamorphosed at about Ma.
