Abstract

Evidence of retrograde reactions in two southeastern Australian low-pressure regional metamorphic complexes supports the suggestion of England and Richardson that metamorphic complexes controlled largely by magmatic intrusions should cool isobarically in the early stages. This behavior contrasts with the cooling of metamorphic complexes formed during major collision-type processes, which show evidence of marked decrease in pressure.
