... Abstract The northwestern part of Holsnøy island, in the Bergen Arcs, Norway, consists of a granulite-facies protolith partially transformed at depth in eclogite (700 °C, > 19 kbars) and amphibolite (650 °C, 8–10 kbars) facies during the Caledonian orogenesis. Eclogitized zones are mainly...

... the manuscript. The Holsnøy eclogites are within the Bergen arcs, a stack of arcuate thrust sheets of Proterozoic gneisses and lower Paleozoic ophiolite and island-arc complexes that were emplaced onto the margin of the Baltic craton during the formation of the Scandinavian Caledonides. The eclogites occur...

... in this nappe was low grade. The Lindås nappe was affected by partial eclogite and amphibolite facies Caledonian overprints at ca. 460 Ma ( Boundy et al., 1996, 1997b ; Table 1 ). Eclogites are common to the west, on the island of Holsnøy, where two main stages of arrested eclogitization of the granulite...

... Tibet is likely to be very weak ( Fielding et al., 1994 ; Clark and Royden, 2000 ). The high-pressure rocks of the Caledonian root zone exposed in the island of Holsnoy, near Bergen in western Norway, were extensively described by Austrheim (1987) , Austrheim and Boundy (1994) , Austrheim et al...

... the island of Solund, which lies off the entrance to Sognefjorden, with ~2 h of the day spent looking at the spectacular geology from the decks of ferries (binoculars useful!). Stop 4.1 is a look-see “stop” from the ferry deck, as the geology of the small island of Losna (astride the Nordfjord-Sogn...

... discovered in a subsea tunnel close to Bjorøy, an island SW of Bergen ( Fossen et al. 1997 ). This indicates that the basement of this coastal area was already at (or at least near) the surface in the Jurassic and was subsequently buried under sediments during the Jurassic and the Cretaceous. The age...

... on the island of Holsnoy, Norway, were demonstrated to be metastable with respect to eclogite, with the latter developing at the expense of the granulite only where fluid influx catalyzed the otherwise kinetically impeded transformation reaction. For the granulites on Holsnoy, the metamorphic facies principle...
