Qopoto, Cromwell


The Solomon Islands arc a complex collage of crustal units or terranes (collectively called the Solomon Block) that have formed and accreted within an intra-oceanic environment during the Cretaceous and Tertiary Periods. The Solomon Block has recently being subdivided into five terranes based on: basement lithology and geochemistry, age, and development (or lack) of younger, arc-dominated, basaltic basement sequences. A combination of terrane assessment coupled with the ongoing magmatic and...[Show more]
