BROWN 1 Laboratory for Crustal Petrology, Department of Geology, University of Maryland, College Park, Maryland 20742 Abstract In general, Archean rocks exhibit rather ordinary moderate-P–high-T facies series metamor- phism; neither blueschists nor any record of deep continental subduction and return are docu- mented. However, the abundance and scale of ultrahigh-temperature (UHT) metamorphic belts from the Neoarchean to the Cambrian imply a significant change in geodynamics during the Neoarchean Era, after which transient sites of high heat flow were available at intervals throughout this period of Earth evolution. Many Neoproterozoic–Cambrian UHT metamorphic belts appear to have developed in settings analogous to modern backarcs that were closed and inverted during crustal aggregation and formation of the Gondwana supercontinent. If backarcs were the general setting for UHT meta- morphism, then on a hotter Earth the cyclic formation of supercratons (in the Neoarchean Era) and supercontinents (in the Proterozoic Eon) required the destruction of oceans floored by thinner litho-
