The Oman Ophiolites is an assemblage of the neo-tethys oceanic crust and upper mantle (igneous) rocks and associated sedimentary rocks scraped off the top of neo-tethys ocean floor. The Oman ophiolites emplacement on top of northern Oman mountains started in about the Turonian time (~90 Ma) and was concluded during the Campanian time (~80Ma). This emplacement of the Oman ophiolites was part of a regional closure of the neo-tethys ocean. Oman ophiolite displacement is estimated to have moved ~400km away from its original location below sea floor. This presentation is aimed at taking you in a virtual fieldtrip to zoom into a window in the geological history of northern Oman mountains, specifically the Oman ophiolite emplacement period. We will virtually visit different outcrops of the Oman ophiolites that tells the emplacement process story.
