about

The processes involved in accretion taking place at oceanic ridges are approached here via petrological and structural analysis of oceanic rocks in present-day oceanic ridges, combined with similar studies based on ophiolites, and includes present cases of slow and fast oceanic spreading and inferred analogues in ophiolites. A complementary model study of cyclic oceanic activity reconciles the extreme cases of slowly and rapidly spreading ridges. In essence, based as it is on the analysis of `real rocks', this book on mantle-crust interactions reinforces the well-known contrast between processes taking place at slow and fast oceanic ridges. Audience: Contains valuable information for scientists interested in the nature and generation of the ocean floor in present-day oceanic ridges and in their ophiolite counterparts.

Editorial Reviews

` ... presents the most recent data and interpretations from several key ophiolite complexes and mid-ocean-ridge segments and, as such, it is a good reference book for research on any aspect of oceanic crust generation. I highly recommend it for graduate students and professionals actively studying mid-ocean-ridge tectonics and sea-floor spreading.' Journal of Geoscience Education, 45 (1997)
