Abstract

The Ivrea-Verbano zone, northern Italy, contains an igneous complex up to 10km thick that is thought to have been intruded near the interface between the continental crust and mantle during the late Paleozoic. New data indicate that this complex is pervasively deformed and concentrically foliated. The presence of analogous features in ophiolitic gabbros suggests that emplacement of the Ivrea-Verbano zone plutonic rocks involved large-scale flow of crystal mush in a dynamic, and possibly extensional, tectonic environment. -from Authors
