Good news! Today our paper, entitled “Cretaceous partial melting, deformation, and exhumation of the Potters Pond migmatite domain, west-central Idaho” was published in the journal Lithosphere as part of a themed issue on the EarthScope IDOR project: Deformation and Magmatic Modification of a Steep Continental Margin, Western Idaho-Eastern Oregon

This manuscript presents the results of my masters student Will Montz’s dissertation work. The central aim of the study is to understand the partial melting and deformation history of an enigmatic migmatite domain within the Western Idaho Shear zone, which we achieve through combined structural mapping and new U-Pb geochronology of zircon and monazite from distinct migmatite units.
