By R.L.M Vissers,A. Nicolas

This quantity follows a really good Symposium on "Mantle denudation in sluggish spreading ridges and in ophiolites", held on the XII EUG assembly in Strasbourg, spring 1993. throughout the assembly it was once felt that the contribu­ tions to the Symposium justified a quantity providing its major medical achievements. the current identify of the quantity indicates that the heart of inter­ est has somewhat shifted with recognize to the preliminary aim: in an effort to below­ stand the approaches concerned about accretion happening at oceanic ridges, it is important to review the interplay among uppermost mantle and reduce crust. The method favorite this is that of petrological and structural research of oceanic rocks in present-day oceanic ridges mixed with related experiences in ophiolites. Rock specimen accumulated by way of submersibles or dredge hauls in oceanic ridge environments supply a "ground truth". notwithstanding, aside from parts reminiscent of the MARK (Mid-Atlantic Ridge ne ar Kane fracture quarter) the place, because of a number of submersible dives, the neighborhood geology is understood with aprecision even greater than in lots of onshore ophiolites, mutual rela­ tionships among uppermost mantle and reduce crust are poorly recognized. by contrast, onshore ophiolites offer an important large-scale photograph equipped up over a long time of structural and petrological mapping.
