Heterogeneous strain commonly serves as an important natural instrument for unraveling complex tectonic histories in polyphase metamorphic terranes. We present key examples of multi-scale heterogeneous deformation from two classic deep-crustal granulite terranes, the Athabasca Granulite Terrane in western Canada and the Limpopo Complex in southern Africa. These examples are chosen to illustrate how localized strain and attendant metamorphism played a key role in the development and preservation of important records of deep-crustal processes. In addition, several common characteristics of these terranes are identified through this analysis and include heterogeneous deep-crustal flow, regional-scale tectonic heterogeneity, and multistage exhumation with high-resolution records...
