Boulder, Colo.: Geological Society of America, (OCoLC) 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.

They more closely resemble the lavas of island arcs. And dating studies showed that many ophiolites were pushed onto the continent only a few million years after they formed. These facts point to a subduction-related origin for most ophiolites, in other words near shore instead of the : Andrew Alden.

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. In fact, the same sequences of rocks were first reported in the.

Since the late s, the term ophiolite has been used to describe sections of oceanic crust and upper mantle, along with sedimentary rocks deposited on the sea floor, emplaced as thrust slices onto continental process, called obduction, results from continent-continent collision following subduction of oceanic crust and the closure of oceans or back-arc basins.

Ophiolite:An ophiolite is a segment of ocean crust and mantle tectonically exposed on land by obduction (overthrust), usually when an ocean basin closes.

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.The purpose of this book is to provide a starting point for anyone interested in the background and state of knowledge concerning ophiolites (ancient oceanic lithosphere).

Because ophiolites represent fragments of old oceanic crust their tectonic setting and age are extremely important in the reconstruction of ancient plate boundaries.Ophiolites have been found in Cyprus, New Guinea, Newfoundland, California, and Oman. The Samail ophiolite in southeastern Oman has probably been studied in the greatest detail.

The rocks probably formed in the Cretaceous not far from the what is now the Persian Gulf. The rocks were later thrust (pushed uphill at a low angle) westward onto the.
