An ophiolite is a section of the Earth's oceanic crust and the underlying upper mantle that has been uplifted and exposed above sea rocks which make up ophiolites are an altered form of basalt. The rocks are often green. They are found in the mountain belts such as the Alps or the show where former ocean basins were consumed by subduction.

An ophiolite sequence consists of variably altered oceanic rocks, including marine sediments, ocean crust, and part of the mantle.

The name ophiolite means “snakestone” from “ophio. Ophiolite Disruption Ophiolites differ from intact seafloor crust in some important ways, most notably in that they aren't intact. Ophiolites are almost always broken apart, so the peridotite, gabbro, sheeted dikes and lava layers don't stack up nicely for the : Andrew Alden.

The volcanic stratigraphy and trace element geochemistry of the Oman ophiolite complex indicate a multistage magmatic origin comprising: (1) magmatism due to sea-floor spreading in a marginal basin; (2) magmatism associated with discrete submarine volcanic centres or seamounts; (3) magmatism associated with crustal uplift and rifting; and (4) magmatism associated with continent-arc by: Catastrophic Events and Mass Extinctions: Impacts and Beyond - Ebook written by Christian Koeberl, Kenneth G.

Ophiolites are sequences of mafic to ultramafic rock generally believed to represent ancient oceanic are distributed all across the world being all of them located at present or past orogenic belts, sites of mountain building processes.

Ophiolites are common in orogenic belts of Mesozoic age, like those formed by the closure of the Tethys Ocean. Tethyan ophiolites have played a major role in the development of the ophiolite concept during the past years, and contributed significantly to the formulations of the suprasubduction-zone (SSZ) ophiolite paradigm and the plate-tectonics theory.

A recent paper has challenged this interpretation. The authors assert that the “ophiolite conundrum” (seafl oor spreading shown by dike complexes versus arc geochemistry) can be resolved by a model called “historical contingency,” which holds that most ophiolites form at mid-ocean ridges that tap.

But although Charles Lyell published the actual book, it is still James Hutton who gets the credit for being 'The Father of Modern Geology.' Hutton's principle of uniformitarianism gave geology a real boost that helped it grow into.

Special Catastrophic Tectonics during the Cenozoic. The Cenozoic is unique in that in addition to rapid and intense vertical and horizontal tectonics of the earth’s crust and upper mantle, there were many other catastrophic tectonic action.

These include the emplacement of ophiolites, metamorphic core complexes, and ultrahigh-pressure minerals. This sequence is well exposed at the Samail ophiolite. The base of the sequence is sedimentary rocks of the Arabian shield, not part of the ophiolite, on which the oceanic plate was pushed. From base to top the ophiolite is made of: peridotite, layered gabbro, massive gabbro, dikes, and volcanic rocks.

At Samail this entire sequence is 15 km thick. The name ophiolite is derived from the Greek words 'ophis', meaning snake, and 'lithos', meaning rock. The reason for this name is that ophiolite rocks are rich in iron-magnesium silicate minerals that originated deep within the earth.

Now lying on the surface of the Earth they are The Semail Ophiolite which lies exposed on the surface in OmanFile Size: KB.

Other articles where Ophiolite is discussed: igneous rock: Divergent plate boundaries: ultramafic rocks are known as ophiolites. Many geologists believe that ophiolites formed at oceanic ridges were emplaced by tectonic forces at convergent plate boundaries and then became exposed in highly deformed orogenic (mountain) belts.
