原始语种摘要: Abstract(#br)The present work presents new field observations on the geological characteristics of the Neoproterozoic ophiolites of the Central Eastern Desert (CED) of Egypt. Based on mode of occurrences, the investigated ophiolites appear to show characteristics of both MORB-type and SSZ-type ophiolites and classified from oldest to youngest into: (1) MORB intact ophiolites (MIO), (2) dismembered ophiolites (DO), and (3) arc-associated ophiolites (AAO). Ophiolite components include serpentinized peridotite and other metamorphosed ultramafics, metagabbros, sheeted dykes, pillowed and massive metabasalts, minor boninites, and pelagic sediments. The rocks of the MIO and DO were subjected to two main phases of deformation (D 1 and D 2 ) and metamorphism, whereas the AAO have been affected...
