      By analogy with ophiolites, this zone is interpreted as the transition between the mantle and the lower crust. An important observation made at Site was that three holes drilled a few hundred meters apart produced various proportions of residual and magmatic rocks, suggesting that the liquids feeding the crust are channeled along. Oceanic ridges are extensional environments characterized by brittle to ductile normal faulting and episodic magma supply. Studies in modern oceanic settings suggest that the interplay of low-angle detachments and high-angle normal faults locally lead to the exhumation of lower crust and upper mantle peridotites to the seafloor as oceanic core by:

      Cool lithosphere there is inferred from a low magma supply and lithostratigraphic evidence for thin crust with abundant mantle rock exposed to the seafloor. We show that the concentrations of Cu, Zn, As, Ga, Pb, Sb, and Tl in the Kane Megamullion MORBs rise linearly with melt differentiation expressed by decreasing MgO and Ni by: 3. An ophiolite is a section of the Earth's oceanic crust and the underlying upper mantle that has been uplifted and exposed above sea level and often emplaced onto continental crustal rocks.. The Greek word ὄφις, ophis (snake) is found in the name of ophiolites, because of the superficial texture of some of tinite especially evokes a snakeskin.

Thank you for your patience. The present title of Mantle and Lower Crust Exposed in Oceanic Ridges and in Ophiolites shows that the center of inter­est has slightly shifted with respect to the initial objective: in order to under­ stand the processes involved in accretion taking place at oceanic ridges, it is crucial to study the interaction between uppermost mantle and lower crust.

The approach favored here is that of petrological and structural analysis of oceanic rocks in present-day oceanic. However, except for areas such as the MARK (Mid-Atlantic Ridge ne ar Kane fracture zone) where, thanks to multiple submersible dives, the local geology is known with aprecision even better than in many onshore ophiolites, mutual rela­ tionships between uppermost mantle and lower crust are poorly known.

Mantle and Lower Crust Exposed in Oceanic Ridges and in Ophiolites Rock specimen collected by submersibles or dredge hauls in oceanic ridge environments provide a "ground truth". However, except for areas such as the MARK (Mid-Atlantic Ridge ne ar Kane fracture zone) where, thanks to multiple submersible dives, the local geology is known.

Gabbroic sills intruding dunite in the crust-mantle transition zone (MTZ) of the Oman ophiolite have textures and compositions very similar to those in modally layered gabbros that form the lower part of the gabbro section in the ophiolite, and different from those in Cited by: 1- Oceanic crust and ophiolites.

The oceanic crust (made of basalts) is formed on mid-ocean ridges. MORB = Mid-Ocean Ridge Basalt. This is the main site of volcanic activity on Earth, and the most abundant igneous rock. But most of it is underwater Occasionally, slivers of oceanic crust are tectonically emplaced on continents (in convergence.

Ophiolites are key sources of information regarding the genesis and evolution of oceanic lithosphere. Over the past decades, the geological ~tudy of ophio- lites has provided a wealth of insight into lithospheric processes and has proved to be an indispensible prerequisite to interpreting geophysical and other investigations of the crust underlying recent oceans.

known ophiolites, slices of oceanic crust that have been exposed on land by tectonic forces. Ophiolites allow scientists to study the three-dimensional structure of the oceanic crust and shallow mantle directly rather than by remote means beneath the seafloor. (After W. Irwin and R. Coleman, U.S.

Geological Survey, ). Our understanding of such mantle processes has therefore relied on the analysis of pieces of fossil oceanic lithosphere now exposed at the Earth's surface, known as by: B.

More recent publications challenge some of the accepted concepts about ophiolites. The book, Mantle and Lower Crust Exposed in Oceanic Ridges and in Ophiolites, edited by Vissers and Nicolas (), ties together some of the findings based upon both marine and field geology.
