HYPERSOLIDUS DEFORMATION AT THE SOUTHWEST INDIAN RIDGE, ODP LEG 176,HOLE 735B

In addition to my work in ophiolites, I have also participated in a cruise with the Ocean Drilling Program (ODP Leg 176) to the Southwest Indian Ridge that drilled over 1500 m of lower crustal gabbro. If you'd like to learn more about some of this work, click on the following titles to pull up portions of a poster presented at a Penrose conference.
