Argon geochronology data from the Austroalpine-Pennine boundary, Central Alps, Switzerland
Ar/Ar data are reported from eight samples of white mica separated from rock samples collected along the Austroalpine-Pennine boundary in the Central Alps of Switzerland. These samples were collected as part of a Caltech PhD study to examine the tectonic history of this boundary and these argon geochronology data represent one small part of the study. Data are reported from these eight samples together with standards that were irradiated together in the Denver USGS TRIGA reactor. Data from the samples were collected by incremental infrared laser heating of individual grains and analysis by multi-collector mass spectrometry. The reported data have been corrected for blanks, radioactive decay, and interfering nucleogenic reactions associated with sample irradiation.
