About this book

Contributions to a Specialised Symposium of the 7th EUG Meeting, Strasbourg, Spring 1993. This volume examines the nature and generation of the ocean floor in present-day oceanic ridges and in their ophiolite counterparts.

' ... 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)
