Description : Recent advancements in analytical procedures such as laser ablation split stream and garnet geochronology, as well as computational techniques such as phase equilibria modelling, have made it possible to generate incredibly detailed pressure-temperature-time-deformation (P-T-t-D) paths for orogenic systems. These advancements also allow researchers to examine many more specimens than previously possible. The enhanced fidelity and density of data has begun to shed light on the processes active during orogenesis including the derivation of their tectonic ‘fingerprints’. This session seeks submissions that cover the technical advances that make constructing P-T-t-D paths possible and the new insights about orogenic systems that are gained from them.Recent advancements in analytical procedures such as laser ablation split stream and garnet geochronology, as well as computational techniques such as phase equilibria modelling, have made it possible to generate incredibly detailed pressure-temperature-time-deformation (P-T-t-D) paths for orogenic systems.
