Yu Jinjie,Wang Denghong,Wang Pingan,Xu Jue,Li Xiaofeng,Chen Yuchuan,Chen Zhenyu. The Research Advances in the Rutile in the Subduction-Collision Zone, High Pressure and Ultrahigh Pressure Metanorphic Zone[J]. Advances in Earth Science, 2006, 21(1): 47-52.
Rutile is a widely distributed mineral in high-grade metamorphic rocks and hydrothermal deposits. The rutile studies of the subduction-collision zones and high pressure and ultrahigh pressure metamorphic zones include (1) role of the rutile in the subduction-collision zone; (2) polymorph of rutile; (3) U-Pb dating of rutile and (4) tracing of rutile for a source rock. These studies is very important not only for origin and characteristics of the akadite in the subduction-collision zone but also for the depth, temperature and pressure of continental ultra-deep subduction, and age of the metamorphic event in high-grade metamorphic terrane, and tracing of the rutile-hosted source rock.
