There will be a thematic session on Ophiolites and Modern Oceanic Lithosphere that will be held at the Sixth Italian Forum of Earth Sciences which will be followed by a field trip to Corsica ophiolites (16th-21nd September 2007).

Thematic session on ophiolites and modern oceanic lithosphere at the Sixth Italian Forum of Earth Sciences (Geoitalia 2007, Rimini, Italy 12th-14th September 2007). The aim of the session is to discuss the recent data and observations on the magmatic, tectonic, metamorphic, hydrothermal, sedimentary, and biogenic processes recorded by the peri-Mediterranean ophiolites, as well as on the mechanisms of their incorporation into the continental margins. Multidisciplinary researches on the modern oceanic lithosphere are also welcome.

Some invited speakers (L. Beccaluva, E. Bonatti, V. Bortolotti Y. Dilek, G.B.Piccardo) will give general talks on the state of art on preminent topics regarding ophiolites from different geodynamic settings and oceanic lithosphere.

We encourage all the interested people to submit abstracts in this session
