Integration of geochronological analyses of in situ zircons with the petrological study of their microstructural growth microdomains (through petrography and phase diagram modeling) yields a more precise interpretation and understanding of any geological process than the study of ages from separate zircons. This is essential especially for those rocks affected by polymetamorphic histories. We present new in situ U-Pb zircon dating from metapelitic granulites exposed in the contact with the ultramafic massif of Beni Bousera (northern Morocco, Western Mediterranean). Geochronological data scatter from Paleoproterozoic (1508 ± 23 Ma) to Miocene (22.9 ± 0.7 Ma), though the majority of ages...
