The ophiolite comprises km2 of which dike exposures account for approximately 60% of the area Fig. 1. (a) Characteristic tectonic regions of Cyprus. (b) Simplified geology after the Geological Survey Department of Cyprus with sampling sites of ophiolite dikes used in this study. The Troodos ophiolite extends km in E-W and 30 km in N-S dimensions (Geological Survey Department Cyprus, ). The Troodos massif forms a gentle dome structure elongated E-W (Fig. 1). Because of the superposition of this domal structure and erosion, the structurally lowest ultramafi c rocks constitute the center of.

The geomorphological structure of Troodos of each rock unit concentrically located around one high peak makes it very easy to the “big picture” of the underlying geological structure. All you have to do is to stand one of the countless belvedere spots and you can see just about everything. Lithologies, fault lines and large scale structures. This provided ample opportunities for hilarious.

One of the most interesting results obtained in the last two decades in the study of crustal deformation has been the recognition that large regions of continental crust undergo rotations about vertical axis during deformation. Proof of such rotations has come through the paleomagnetic studies.

SyntaxTextGen not activatedThe Troodos ophiolite in Cyprus provides a unique opportunity to examine spatially varying patterns of pdf near a ridge-transform intersection. The paleo-inner corner is confined by the EW-striking Arakapas transform fault and the NS-striking Solea graben.

Rocks within the inner corner are primarily sheeted dikes and gabbros from the midcrust.RECENT palaeomagnetic studies download pdf sheeted dykes adjacent to the east-west trending Southern Troodos transform fault of Cyprus have demonstrated significant clockwise block rotations, which are most easily interpreted as being due to drag induced by dextral strike-slip faulting along the transform1–6.

We show here that such rotations have not occurred along the entire length of the transform.Tectonics of the circum-Troodos ebook cover of Cyprus, from rock magnetic and structural observations France Lagroix, Graham J.
