The continental crust extends in a brittle manner in its upper part and in more distributed (ductile) manner in its lower part. During exhumation of HP metamorphic rocks, brittle features superimpose on earlier ductile ones as a result of the progressive localization of deformation. The islands of Tinos and Andros are part of the numerous metamorphic core complexes exhumed in the Aegean domain. They illustrate two steps of a gradient of finite extension along a transect between Mt. Olympos and Naxos. This study confirms the main role of boudinage as an initial localizing factor at the brittle–ductile transition and...
