Abstract

The following paper presents the field trip through the unique mantle sequence composed of peridotites and exposed along Atalante Geo-Trail in Troodos Geopark, Cyprus. This manuscript briefly summarises data from many papers and presents authors’ own field observations, in order to provide information on evolution of enigmatic Troodos mantle peridotites.

Keywords: ophiolite; peridotite; serpentinite; Troodos Massif
