Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review



In a previous article simple one dimensional models of metamorphic conditions were examined. In this article more realistic two-dimensional models are set up, to show the metamorphic effects of burial, intrusion and thrusting. Models in which erosion takes place demonstrate the development of a metamorphic facies series and underline the importance of understanding regional stratigraphy in interpreting metamorphism.
