High-grade Precambrian (Proterozoic Y) granulite gneisses, paragneiss and rusty gneisses (metasedimentary/metavolcanic, ?) in the Hudson Highlands of southeastern New York State are intruded by plutons of Storm King granite gneiss and Canada Hill granite. The metasedimentary/metavolcanic (?) gneisses were deformed multiply during the Grenvillian dynamothermal metamorphism in three phases of deformation (D1, D2, D3). Plutons of Storm King granite gneiss contain S1 planar and L2 linear fabrics and were deformed in all phases of deformation with the metasedimentary/metavolcanic (?) gneisses. This indicates a pre-tectonic to early syntectonic age for intrusion of the...
