Monazite is ubiquitous in the geological realm (Overstreet 1967). Its compositional and isotopic response to changes in intensive and extensive rock parameters has made it an increasingly important component of integrated pressure-temperature-deformation-composition-time (P-T-D-X-t) studies, particularly in complex poly-metamorphic terranes (Janots et al. 2012; Kelly et al. 2012; Langille et al. 2012). The utility of monazite also includes its role in understanding igneous, sedimentary, and hydrothermal systems (Dumond et al. 2008; Mahan et al. 2010; Aleinikoff et al. 2012), and more recently, as a means for examining repositories of...
