Abstract

The Kodiak Islands of Alaska are principally composed of a Late Cretaceous and Paleogene complex of accreted deep-sea rocks. An early Paleocene magmatic event invaded the accretionary complex with mid-ocean ridge basalt (MORB), andesite, and granodiorite. Geochemical and palaeomagnetic studies are used to trace the evolution and explain the N ward movement of the accretionary complex.-after Authors
