Summary:Calculated phase equilibria are presented for sodic amphibole, calcic amphibole, garnet, chloritoid, talc, chlorite, paragonite, margarite, omphacite, plagioclase, carpholite, zoisite/clinozoisite, lawsonite, pyrophyllite, kyanite, sillimanite, quartz and H2O in the model system NCFMASH. The resultant petrogenetic grid provides a valuable tool for reconstructing the P-T evolution of metabasic rocks, as is demonstrated for rocks from the island of Samos. For rocks from N Samos, pseudomorphs after lawsonite preserved in garnet, the assemblage sodic amphibole-garnet-paragonite-chlorite-zoisite-quartz and the retrograde appearance of albitic plagioclase and the formation of calcic plagioclase around sodic amphibole, constrain a clockwise P-T path that reaches its thermal maximum at ∼ 520°C and 19 kbar. The derived P-T trajectory indicates cooling during exhumation of the rocks and is similar to paths for rocks from the W part of the Attic-Cycladic crystalline complex. Rocks from E Samos indicate lower P and are probably related to high-P rocks from the Menderes Massif, W Turkey. [R.A.H.]
