Metamorphic conditions were estimated for the Tallulah Falls Formation in the vicinity of Woodall Shoals on the Chattooga River on the Georgia–South Carolina border. Thermal peak metamorphic conditions of 700 o C, 6.25kbar, and 0.65<aH O <1.0 were estimated using a variety of geothermometers and geobarometers applied to amphibolite, amphibole-garnet-biotite gneiss, and sillimanite-biotite-gneiss. Results from this study confirm Barrovian metamorphism in the eastern Blue Ridge.
