Abstract

Hole 504B provides a reference section for correlation of in situ petrological and geophysical studies with regional crustal models based on dredged samples and remote surveys; and, at least for the medium-spreading-rate CRI Rift, Hole 504B confirms that the main features of the upper part of an idealized ophiolite sequence occurs in the oceanic crust.
