U-Pb zircon age of the Andaman ophiolite: implications for the beginning of subduction beneath the Andaman-Sumatra arc

Abstract:

The Andaman ophiolites form the basement of the Andaman Islands, which is a part of the outer forearc that links the Indo-Burma accretionary complex to the north with the Java-Sumatra trench-arc system to the SE. Upper mantle harzburgite and dunite are overlain by a cumulate peridotite-gabbro complex, highlevel intrusive rocks and a tholeiitic volcanic series. The upper crust in the South Andaman ophiolite shows also a prominent andesite-dacite volcanic suite, suggesting arc volcanism built o...
