        Geological Society of America Penrose Conference:

                        Ophiolites and Oceanic Crust:
        New Insights from Field Studies and Ocean Drilling Program

September 13-17, 1998, Marconi Center, Tamales Bay, California, USA

Application Deadline (EXTENDED): Wednesday, 1 April, 1998
	The main themes of the conference are:

* Structure/tectonics of ophiolites and ophiolite-ocean crust analogy
* Structural and magmatic processes at spreading centers
* Hydrothermal alteration, serpentinization & mineralization
* Petrology and geochemistry of ophiolites and oceanic crust
* Sedimentation and sedimentary cover of ophiolites and oceanic crust
* Fracture zone tectonics in ophiolite/ocean crust geology
* Ophiolite emplacement, melange problem, and metamorphic soles
* Outstanding problems and future studies in ophiolite/ocean crust geology,
and * Drilling into oceanic crust in the 21st Century. 

Participants will be selected to include broad representation of different
relevant disciplines, particularly from scientists participated in projects
of the Ocean Drilling Program, and researchers from the marine
geology/geophysics and ophiolite geology communities.  Graduate students are
encouraged to apply; a partial subsidy will be available to some graduate
students.  The registration fee, which will cover lodging, meals, field
trips, and ground transportation during the meeting, is not expected to
exceed $700.
