Abstract

Ultrahigh pressure metamorphism (UHPM) is an important type of orogenic metamorphism that over recent years has been increasingly recognised as a characteristic, though poorly preserved, feature of many Phanerozoic plate collision zones. UHPM can be defined as “a type of metamorphism that occurs at very high lithostaticpressures within the eclogite facies but above the stability field of quartz”.
