Abstract

Since the late 1970s, it has been increasingly recognized that the petrology and geochemistry of ophiolites predominantly resemble those of lithological units from intra-oceanic subduction zones, ranging from nascentand fore- to intra- or back-arcs, ruling out analogy with modern oceanic ridge lithosphere. This conclusion is largely based on studies of the Troodos and Oman ophiolites, which have revealed that the mafic members have geochemical characteristics transitional between those of mid-ocean ridge basalts (MORB) and island arc tholeiites (IAT).
