<p>Serpentinites are metamorphic rocks that are produced by low grade metamorphism or hydrothermal alteration of ultramafic igneous rocks. They have been used for many centuries in the construction of major cultural and religious symbols. The serpentinization ...
SHEAR-RATE-DEPENDENT STRENGTH CONTROL ON THE DYNAMICS OF RAINFALL-TRIGGERED LANDSLIDES, TOKUSHIMA PREFECTURE, JAPAN (2010)
<p>To examine the mechanism for this landsliding characteristic in the Shiraishi area of Kisawa village (Japan), samples (weathered serpentinite) were taken from the field, and their shear behaviour was examined using ring shear tests.</p>
Petrographic and geochemical studies of the serpentinites from the Tehuitzingo body, the main ophiolitic outcrop of the Paleozoic Acatlan Complex of southern Mexico, provide new petrogenetic evidence and preliminary data on the nature of the fluids that interacted ...
In this article serpentinite from Banovina, Croatia, was studied.
This paper describes two projects in which serpentinite caused significant problems: during design of the Kusan - 3 HEPP dam in Indonesia: and during construction of the Berke powerhouse access tunnel in Turkey.
With regard to the number of mineral species ﬁrst discovered in a particular country, Italy ranks fourth, being preceded only by USA, Russia and Germany. Important rock-forming minerals like analcime, anorthite, anorthoclase, antigorite, celadonite, diopside, ...
MANTLE PROCESSES DURING OCEAN FORMATION: PETROLOGIC RECORDS IN PERIDOTITES FROM THE ALPINE APENNINE OPHIOLITES (2003)
Mantle peridotites were early exposed at the sea-ﬂoor of the Jurassic Tethys derived from the subcontinental mantle of the Europe-Adria system. During continental rifting and oceanic spreading, these lithospheric peridotites were percolated via diffuse reactive ...
METABASITES FROM THE NORTHERN SERPENTINITE BELT (CUBA) AND A METAMORPHIC PERSPECTIVE OF THE PLATE TECTONIC MODELS FOR THE CARIBBEAN REGION (2003)
<p>This paper is about the analysis of metamorphosed magmatic rocks along the northern serpentinite belt (Cuba) that suggests a variety of tectonic settings of formation and metamorphism.</p>
4. GEOCHEMISTRY OF SERPENTINITE MUDS AND METAMORPHIC ROCKS FROM THE MARIANA FOREARC ,ODP SITES 1200 AND 778-779, SOUTH CHAMORRO AND CONICAL SEAMOUNTS (1998)
New geochemical data on serpentinite muds and metamorphic clasts recovered during Ocean Drilling Program Legs 195 (Holes 1200A-1200E) and 125 (Holes 778A and 779A) provide insights into the proportions of rock types of various sources that compose the serpentinite ...
This paper is about a highly tectonized contact between serpentinite and younger pegmatite in the magnesite mine of Wiry that contains various layer silicates.
