This paper investigates the effect of non-linear thermal profile on the numerical solution of the multi-reaction model. According to the practical perspective, the temperature distribution at a different section of pyrolysis reactor is not necessarily following the ideal thermal history; therefore, it is necessary to predict the behaviour of the system for the higher degree of freedom. TG thermogram is obtained by the thermal degradation of pine needles sample in the thermogravimetric analyser (TGA). The activation energy, frequency factor, reaction order and the scale, shape and location parameters of a stochastic function are estimated for the non-linear parabolic thermal profile. The conventional Laplace integral is used to approximate the multi-reaction model. Activation energy obtained for the non-thermal profile lies in the range of 57.5–60 kJ·mol−1, whereas the frequency factor varies from 103–105 min-1. The obtained value of reaction order (n) lies in the domain of (0.9, 1.6).

This study presents zircon fission track data from the Bucovinian nappe stack (northern part of the Inner Eastern Carpathians, Rodna Mountains) and a neighbouring part of the Biharia nappe system (Preluca massif) in order to unravel the thermal history of the area and its structural evolution by integrating the fission track data with published data on the tectonic and sedimentary evolution of the area. The increase of metamorphic temperatures towards the SW detected by the zircon fission track data suggests SW-wards increasing tectonic overburden (up to at least 15 km) and hence top NE thrusting. Sub-greenschist facies conditions during the Alpine metamorphic overprint only caused partial annealing of fission tracks in zircon in the external main chain of the Central Eastern Carpathians. Full annealing of zircon points to at least 300 °C in the more internal elements (Rodna Mountains and Preluca massif). The zircon fission track central and single grain ages largely reflect Late Cretaceous cooling and exhumation. A combination of fission track data and stratigraphic constraints points to predominantly tectonic differential exhumation by some 7-11 km, connected to massive Late Cretaceous extension not yet detected in the area. Later events such as the latest Cretaceous (“Laramian”) juxtaposition of the nappe pile with the internal Moldavides, causing exhumation by erosion, re-burial by sedimentation and tectonic loading during the Cenozoic had no impact on the zircon fission track data; unfortunately it prevented a study of the low temperature part of the Late Cretaceous exhumation history.

The Ibar Basin was formed during Miocene large scale extension in the NE Dinaride segment of the Alpine- Carpathian-Dinaride system. The Miocene extension led to exhumation of deep seated core-complexes (e.g. Studenica and Kopaonik core-complex) as well as to the formation of extensional basins in the hanging wall (Ibar Basin). Sediments of the Ibar Basin were studied by apatite and zircon fission track and vitrinite reflectance in order to define thermal events during basin evolution. Vitrinite reflectance (VR) data (0.63-0.90 %Rr) indicate a bituminous stage for the organic matter that experienced maximal temperatures of around 120-130 °C. Zircon fission track (ZFT) ages indicate provenance ages. The apatite fission track (AFT) single grain ages (45-6.7 Ma) and bimodal track lengths distribution indicate partial annealing of the detrital apatites. Both vitrinite reflectance and apatite fission track data of the studied sediments imply post-depositional thermal overprint in the Ibar Basin. Thermal history models of the detritial apatites reveal a heating episode prior to cooling that began at around 10 Ma. The heating episode started around 17 Ma and lasted 10-8 Ma reaching the maximum temperatures between 100-130 °C. We correlate this event with the domal uplift of the Studenica and Kopaonik cores where heat was transferred from the rising warm footwall to the adjacent colder hanging wall. The cooling episode is related to basin inversion and erosion. The apatite fission track data indicate local thermal perturbations, detected in the SE part of the Ibar basin (Piskanja deposit) with the time frame ~7.1 Ma, which may correspond to the youngest volcanic phase in the region.
difference at the same heating temperature/thermometer. It is evident the FG-B has a greatest D e at 330°C and a lowest D e at 250°C, which would result in an old age at 330°C and a young age at 250°C. The cooling rate of FG-B was probably slower than FG-A and FG-C. This suggests these three samples experienced different thermalhistories and cooling processes. Since the anomalous fading of K-feldspar TL signals is not in the scope of this paper, we assumed that the samples from Nujiang River faded in the same relative proportion. The anomalous fading is not a critical

), which is divided into two groups of EL and EH chondrite by remaining chondrule size and Fe-Ni-metal abundance. The EH chondrite exhibits a brighter blue CL in the enstatite at higher petrologic type, whereas the EL chondrite has the enstatite at higher petrologic type with a brighter magenta CL.
Enstatite is one of most important rock-forming minerals in the terrestrial and extraterrestrial materials. The enstatite CL in the meteorites has been investigated to reveal their thermalhistories (e.g., Derham et al ., 1964 ; Keil, 1968 ; Zhang et al ., 1996 ). Most
