Chen, Yanhong; Niu, Yaoling; Shen, Fangyu; Gao, Yajie; Wang, Xiaohong


The Troodos ophiolite is a classic and is one of the most complete and best-studied ophiolites on Earth. However, there are few studies on the geochronology of the plagiogranite in the Troodos ophiolite. With the advancement of zircon U-Pb in situ dating method developed in recent decades, it is necessary to revisit the age of the plagiogranite. In this study, we carried out detailed petrography, zircon U-Pb dating and mineral compositional analysis for the plagiogranite. Our new zircon...[Show more]
