Table 3 Orientation of fabric elements, associated metamorphic facies (purple: eclogite facies, light blue: epidote blueschist facies, dark blue: non-specifiable HP conditions) and their relative chronology

From: Internal geometry of the central Sesia Zone (Aosta Valley, Italy): HP tectonic assembly of continental slices

  1. For the External Complex, stage 4 values related to S4 and L4 are highlighted by dashed-line ellipses. Equal area projection, lower hemisphere (Stereo 32 software used). Note that early structural and metamorphic stages recognised in the two complexes are numbered from 1 to 3, but no correlation or synchronicity is implied prior to the juxtaposition of the two complexes, i.e. stage 4
