  • Abstract Ocean plate stratigraphy (OPS) is a term used to describe the sequence of sedimentary and volcanic rocks deposited on oceanic crust substratum from the time it forms at a spreading center, to the time it is incorporated into an accretionary prism at a convergent margin. In this study, we review the major geological characteristics of relict Cenozoic to early Archean oceanic crust and OPS persevered in Alaska, Japan, California (Franciscan Complex), Central Asia, British Isles, Canada… CONTINUE READING
