Since 1976, Ofioliti provides an international forum for original contributions and reviews in the field of the geodynamics, petrology, geochemistry, stratigraphy, tectonics and paleogeography applied to ophiolitic terrains and modern oceanic lithosphere, including their sedimentary cover. Studies of related topics such as geodynamics of the mantle and the evolution of orogens including ophiolites are also welcome.
