A Petrographic Atlas of Ophiolite: An example from the by Naresh Chandra Ghose,Nilanjan Chatterjee,Fareeduddin

By Naresh Chandra Ghose,Nilanjan Chatterjee,Fareeduddin

The e-book is a considerate dialogue with scientists learning convergent plate barriers reminiscent of the well known, energetic India-Eurasia collision quarter. It presents a complete selection of petrographic photographs of ophiolitic rocks exhumed from oceanic lithosphere and mantle on the India-Asia plate boundary. Ophiolite is uncovered within the northwestern Himalayas, japanese Indian plate margin and Andaman-Nicobar Islands. on the jap margin, it happens in a slender strip comprising mantle peridotite tectonite, cummulate peridotite-gabbro-plagiogranite-anorthosite, mafic dyke, volcanics and oceanic sediments. Low temperature/high strain rocks together with blueschists and eclogites have been largely studied lately. Ophiolite derived sediments and podiform chromites can be mentioned to supply whole info. Supplemental maps, geological sections, box sketches and pictures will clarify the constitution, stratigraphy, ore mineralization, and metamorphic history.
