|dc.description||The enclosed core descriptions were compiled and edited by Louisa Douma,
Angela Dobson and Paul T. Robinson using detailed core descriptions written
by the observers listed on the individual core forms. Graphic representations
were drafted by the Cyprus Geological Survey.
During description of the core, cooling units were identified and numbered
sequentially down the ~ole. The unit numbers designate the· core ~ box in
which the unit first appears. Contacts were drawn at the tops of individual
pillows and at massive basalt flow margins.
Among the secondary minerals that occur throughout the section, chlorite
and smectite were impossible to distinguish in the field and are listed
usually as smectite or layer silicates. · Individual zeolites could only
rarely be distinguished in hand specimen. Estimates of groundmass alteration
were made from hand specimens and are approximate at best||en_US
