3‐D structure of the northern Oman‐UAE ophiolite: Widespread, short‐lived, suprasubduction zone magmatism

Abstract:

The Oman‐United Arab Emirates (UAE) ophiolite is the most intensely studied ophiolite on Earth, is commonly used as a template for other poorly exposed and structurally complex ophiolites, and is often used as an analog for fast‐spreading mid‐ocean ridges like the East Pacific Rise. Several recent studies, including the largest ever focused on the UAE, have suggested that the pseudostratigraphy of the ophiolite in the UAE is distinct from Oman. Such interpretations have led researchers to pro...
