Abstract

Petrological data based on 147 new major and trace element analyses are presented as a preliminary result of the research program on Jurassic ophiolites from Albania. Albanide ophiolites of the Mirdita tectonic zone represent one of the most complete, coherent sequences among all the Mediterranean ophiolites, and are constituted by two NNW-SSE trending subparallel belts, the Eastern Belt and the Western Belt. The petrological characteristics of the two belts are described, and a paleogeographic reconstruction of the Mirdita oceanic basin during the Jurassic is presented. -from Authors
