    The Tia Complex in the southern New England Fold Belt is a poly-metamorphosed Late Paleozoic accretionary complex. It consists mainly of high-P/low-T type pumpellyite-actinolite facies (rare blueschist facies) schists, phyllite and serpentinite (T=300. °C and P=5. kbar), and low-P/high-T type amphibolite facies schist and gneiss (T=600. °C and P
