... complex. Isotopic data indicate that the complex represents new addition of mantle-derived material to the crust at ca. 1.8 Ga. The Rhinns complex may link with rocks of similar age in North America, Greenland, and Scandinavia, which formed part of the southern margin of the Laurentia-Baltica...

..., Ireland. There are now several lines of evidence to suggest that Archaean crust may be absent southeast of the Great Glen fault zone (e.g. Fitches et al. 1990 ; Daly 1990 ; Halliday et al. 1985 ). A large area of pre-Caledonian basement, here termed the Rhinns Complex, is thought to be present within...

The Iona Group was deposited and deformed after c . 1490 Ma and before c . 422 Ma, constrained by the youngest detrital zircon and titanite and the intrusion of the Ross of Mull Granite, respectively. The detrital data permit...
