A comparison of results of experimental studies of the melting behavior of crustal rocks to numerical models of the thermal structure of the continental ernst ( Fig. 1) suggests that Al-rich metamorphic rocks ('metapelites') can undergo extensive melting (20 to 60 %) during episodes of crustal thickening, even in the absence of intrusion of hot basaltic liquids. Under the same conditions, other metamorphic lithologies, such as orthogneisses and metabasalts, would generate melt fractions welldoi:10.1180/minmag.1994.58a.2.98 fatcat:v4rei3zktbewxgnevab6ho7shy
