Info
U-Pb zircon data for: Cretaceous plutonic rocks of western Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve

Geochronologic analyses to determine the ages of the plutonic rocks in the Glacier Bay area. Five samples were dated by laser ablation-inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry U-Pb methods. These analyses contribute to understanding the geologic history of this area. Sample locations and characteristics, along with measured isotopic ratios and calculated ages are provided in CSV format.

Detrital zircon geochronology of quartzose metasedimentary rocks from parautochthonous North America, east-central Alaska

We report eight new U-Pb detrital zircon ages for quartzose metasedimentary rocks from four lithotectonic units of parautochthonous North America in east-central Alaska: the Healy schist, Keevy Peak Formation, and Sheep Creek Member of the Totatlanika Sch

In situ LA-ICPMS U–Pb dating of cassiterite without a known-age matrix-matched reference material: Examples from worldwide tin deposits spanning the Proterozoic to the Tertiary

Cassiterite , a main ore mineral in tin deposits, is suitable for U–Pb isotopic dating because of its relatively high U/Pb ratios and typically low common Pb. We report a LA-ICPMS analytical procedure for U–Pb dating of

Review of the geochemistry and metallogeny of approximately 1.4 Ga granitoid intrusions of the conterminous United States

The conterminous United States hosts numerous volumetrically significant and geographically dispersed granitoid intrusions that range in age from 1.50 to 1.32 billion years before present (Ga). Although previously referred to as A-type granites, most are

Basement domain map of the conterminous United States and Alaska

Seventy-seven major components of the North American continent were delineated at a general scale (1:5,000,000); including the general composition, geological environment, and types of primary metals endowments that can be expected in each domain.
