Abstract:
We report 1544 new concordant ages, 582 ages from Kansas core and 962 ages from Arkansas outcrop samples. U-Pb age spectra are characterized by major Grenville (900–1,300 Ma) and Taconic-Acadian (350–500 Ma) age clusters and minor components of older age groups, suggesting a persistent source in the Appalachians tied to the Alleghanian orogeny. However, by the Early Pennsylvanian, the Hugoton Embayment samples see the Appalachian source partially replaced by Yavapai-Mazatzal (1800–1600 Ma) and Granite-Rhyolite (1550–1300 Ma) grains, major components of the local basement, that suggest contributions from nearby ARM uplifts.
