The composition of the lower oceanic crust in the Wadi Khafifah section of the southern Samail (Oman) ophiolite

Jill VanTongeren, Peter Kelemen, Carlos Garrido, Marguerite Godard, Karen Hanghoj, Michael Braun & Julian Pearce
The composition of the intrusive gabbroic lower oceanic crust remains poorly characterized in comparison to the extrusive portion of the oceanic crust, especially for intermediate-fast spreading mid-ocean ridges. This is a consequence of limited exposures of extant lower oceanic crust and of ophiolites similar to mid-ocean ridge crust. One of the best analogues for mid-ocean ridge crust is the southern Samail ophiolite that formed during a period of rapid seafloor spreading above a nascent subduction...

Simulated yields and transmissivities for the weathered basement aquifer of Northern Ghana

Marco Bianchi, Alan MacDonald, David Macdonald & Enoch Asare
This dataset was generated with a novel process-based stochastic modelling approach to investigate the productivity and sustainability of groundwater abstractions in the Precambrian basement aquifer in Northern Ghana.
