These results indicate that the timing and spatial relationships of the magmatic activity at ca 1630-1600 Ma in the crystalline basement of NW Lithuania correlate well with magmatic events in the Baltic States and the Baltic Shield in Sweden, suggesting a number of episodic pulses of magmatism and a prolonged temporal evolution of the Riga batholith.
