A fundamental assumption in thermochronology is extrapolation of kinetic parameters over geologic timescales, temperatures, and mineral compositions that often differ significantly from the laboratory conditions used to quantify them. In this study, we aim to test and intercalibrate kinetic parametersof multiple thermochronometric systems using a tractable, natural thermal perturbation associated with the emplacement of a small, young basalt intrusion into granite in the Sierra Nevada, the site of the classic study of Calk and Naeser (1973). We collected a suite of samples along a linear transect orthogonal to the contact, from which the minerals apatite, zircon, titanite, epidote, magnetite, biotite, horneblende, K-feldspar, and plagioclase were separated. Our results to date reveal that the (U-Th)/He system in apatite was completely reset within ~7 m of the contact during basalt emplacement ~8 Ma. At distances >16 m from the contact, the apatite He ages are uniformly ~58 Ma, which likely represents the background (i.e., unperturbed) cooling ages of the granite. Apatite 4 He/ 3 He thermochronometry and an observed transition from background-to rest-ages of these samples are quantitatively consistent with a higher degree of thermal perturbation nearer to the contact. As predicted by our current quantification of radiation damage accumulation influence on He diffusion kinetics (Flowers et al, 2009), we observe correlation between the "effective uranium" concentration and He ages of individual apatite crystals, particularly within this transition zone. In contrast, the (U-Th)/He system in zircon is only partially reset ~7 m from the contact, and the background cooling ages at distances >10 m are ~78 Ma, consistent with a 40 Ar/ 39 Ar age-spectrum from a distal K-feldspar that rises from ~70 to ~80 Ma; both observations are consistent with the relative, experimentally determined temperature sensitivities of these minerals. We present ongoing numerical modeling that provides a framework with which to quantitatively compare and assess these results with forthcoming 40 Ar/ 39 Ar and fission track results in various mineral systems. Inversion of data using these multi-material conductive models will be used to assess the sensitivity of results to assumptions about geometry (1D, 2D, 3D), duration of basalt emplacement, and pre-intrusion cooling rate.
