This study demonstrates the capability of Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) sensor data to remotely map industrial carbonate rocks known as the ‘Oman exotics’ of the Sultanate of Oman. We measured reflectance spectra of marble using a PIMA™ spectrometer and studied their spectral absorptions distinguishing calcite from spectral absorptions of .

Abstract. The two principle objectives of the project Thematic Mapper Study of Alaskan Ophiolites were to further develop techniques for producing geologic maps, and to study the tectonics of the ophiolite terrains of the Brooks Range and Ruby Geanticline of northern : John M.

Geochemical analyses, including major, trace, and rare earth elements (REE), are being done in order to study the significance of TM spectral variations that were observed within some of the sampled rock : J.

[John M Bird; United States. Office of Space Science and Applications.]. 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.

In fact, the same sequences of rocks were first reported in the. Plan your cruise, land tour, or custom package. Discover Alaska's best destinations and excursions.

The 32 research papers in this volume examine the mode and nature of igneous, metamorphic, tectonic, sedimentological and biological processes associated with the evolution of ophiolites in Earth's history.

Divided into six sections, the book presents a wealth of new Format: Hardcover. The more we study ophiolites, the less we can assume about them. If no sheeted dikes can be found, for instance, we cannot infer them just because ophiolites are supposed to have them.

The chemistry of many ophiolite rocks does not quite match the chemistry of mid-ocean ridge rocks. 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.

Abstract The large areal extent and complex nature of the terrain has meant that previous, largely field-based, mapping programmes in the Oman ophiolite have produced maps of internally inconsistent quality.

The ophiolites I have analyzed in this project come from various locations and were formed at different times.

The ages of the ophiolites roughly corresponds to the age of the mantle melting that formed them. Therefore the different ophiolite suites that I will be comparing represent the mantle at .The study result delineates the geometry of the upper crust in the CSD and new models were suggested based on new and joint geophysical interpretation which can benefit VMS prospecting in the area.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.
