Subduction zone metamorphism during formation and emplacement of the Semail ophiolite in the Oman Mountains

Abstract:

The metamorphic sole along the base of the Semail ophiolite in Oman records the earliest thrust slice subducted and accreted to the base of the ophiolite mantle sequence. In the Bani Hamid area (United Arab Emirates) a c. 870 m thick thrust slice of granulite facies rocks includes garnet + diopside amphibolites, enstatite + cordierite + sillimanite + spinel ± sapphirine quartzites, alkaline mafic granulites (meta-jacupirangites) quartzo-feldspathic gneisses and calc-silicates.
