Abstract

The Ivrea Zone is arguably the best example of an exposed tectonic slice through middle to lowermost continental crust. The study area is dominated by a large, composite, ultramafic-mafic intrusion termed the Mafic Complex, which was emplaced during the late Hercynian (~260-300 Ma) into a middle amphibolite- to granulite-facies, metavolcanic-sedimentary sequence. Oxygen isotope analyses of ~130 samples from the Mafic Complex comprise the most complete data base presently available for underplated lower continental crust.
