this is the first announcement of “Alpine Ophiolites and Modern Analogues”,
a three-days international workshop organized by the Italian Working Group
on Mediterranean Ophiolites.
It will be held on September 30 to October 2, 2009 in Parma, ITALY. Abstract
and registration deadline is July 3, 2009
The Workshop aims at discussing multidisciplinary aspects related to
continental rifting and formation/evolution of an oceanic basin, based on
studies from MORB-type Alpine ophiolites and their modern analogues, i.e.
magma-poor passive margins and slow-to ultra-slow spreading ridges.
The Workshop consists of three days of oral/poster presentations. Two
optional field excursions on Ligurian ophiolites (September 28-29) and Lanzo
Peridotite Massif (October 3-4) are also planned.
The oral presentation schedule will include some key-note lectures by H.
Dick, M.Cannat, B. Ildefonse, G. Manatschal, O. Müntener, B. Tucholke.
