    As an old and dense oceanic lithosphere plunges into the mantle during the establishment of a new subduction zone, gravitational pull of this descending slab causes it to roll back, a process that triggers asthenospheric mantle flow and upper plate extension beneath a forearc setting (Brun and Faccenna, ; Schellart, ; Husson et al., ). the oceanic lithosphere Download the oceanic lithosphere or read online books in PDF, EPUB, Tuebl, and Mobi Format.

    CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): Abstract Subduction initiation is a critical link in the plate tectonic cycle. Intraoceanic subduction zones can form along transform faults and fracture zones, but how subduction nucleates parallel to mid-ocean ridges, as in e.g., the Neotethys Ocean during the Jurassic, remains a matter of debate. Research in the Structural Geology & Tectonics group in the Geological Institute at ETH Zürich, led by Professor Whitney Behr, focuses on the rapidly deforming zones that define Earth’s tectonic plate boundaries and generate many of the planet’s geohazards. We are interested in the rates and directions in which faults and shear zones move; their.

      Recent developments have shown that many full and partial ophiolites are preserved in Precambrian cratons. This book provides a comprehensive description and discussion of the field aspects, geochemistry, geochronology and structure of the best of these ophiolites. It also presents syntheses of the characteristics of ophiolites of different ages, and an analysis of what the .

Born in in Rennes, Nicolas lived in Morocco following World War II, where his father worked as a doctor for the World Health first studied in the United States, and then completed his graduate studies at the University of Paris, studying.

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.

The oceanic lithosphere, which makes up almost two-thirds of the surface of the solid Earth, has been formed along the mid-ocean ridges during the past Ma or surface of the solid Earth is bimodal with a mean land elevation of km, and a mean depth for the oceans of km.

Bathymetric profiles and side scan sonar data illustrate the scale and rugged nature of the seabed. The Chenaillet Ophiolite exposed in the Franco-Italian Alps represents a well-preserved ocean-floor sequence that was only weakly affected by later Alpine convergence.

Based on the similarity between rock types and structures reported from ultraslow spreading ridges and those observed in the Chenaillet Ophiolite, it may represent a field analogue for slow to ultraslow spreading ridges such as. Formation of new subduction zones by collapse of oceanic transform faults or fracture zones is suggested on the basis of empirical evidence.

This process has heretofore been investigated with two-dimensional (2-D) numerical models, which thus ignore its intrinsic three-dimensional (3-D) geometry, lateral propagation, and dynamics. The preservation of an oceanic detachment in presubduction Neotethyan lithosphere of the western Mirdita ophiolites indicates that just prior to subduction initiation, spreading in the western Neotethys was slow or ultraslow [Maffione et al., ].

In analogy to modern slow‐spreading ridges, these extensional structures were likely.Dynamics of intra-oceanic subduction initiation, part 1: Oceanic detachment fault inversion and the formation of forearc ophiolites Article in Geochemistry Geophysics Geosystems May with.The Jijal Complex, one of the largest Neo-Tethyan ophiolites (ca.
