Eclogites from the Marun-Keu Complex, Polar Urals, Russia: a record of hot subduction and sub-isothermal exhumation

Abstract : Lenses and boudins of eclogitized and non-metamorphic gabbroic and ultramafic rocks occurring in quartzofeldspathic gneisses and migmatites of the Marun-Keu Complex, Polar Urals, are of central interest for the study of fluid-controlled processes in the subducting continental lithosphere. Petrology and mineral chemistry, combined with multi-equilibrium geothermobarometry and phase-equilibrium modelling, applied to mafic eclogitic rocks show a prograde evolution from c. 685°C, 1.89 GPa and aH2O = 0.6 to c. 745°C, 2.13 GPa and aH2O = 1 followed by near-isothermal decompression down to c. 1.63 GPa. The absence of pre-eclogitic H2O-bearing mineral inclusions in garnet and omphacite suggests that the primary magmatic rocks have not been affected by prograde metamorphism during subduction due to the lack of fluid. We suggest that the Marun-Keu Complex represents a coherent crustal block that experienced the same P–T evolution but provides a metamorphic record of different P–T parameters because of an uneven introduction of aqueous-bearing fluids during subduction and exhumation. The tectonometamorphic history of the Marun-Keu Complex is best attributed to the relatively hot regime of the continental margin subduction beneath an island arc, whereas the blueschist-facies part of the complex towards the north could be related to the closure of the Uralian Ocean.
