Abstract

"The apparent ages (Ar-Ar) suggest that initial oceanic plate disruption and tectonic emplacement of the Zagros and Makran ophiolites occurred in the middle Jurassic (170 Myr ago) with further displacements in the late Cretaceous (97 Myr and 89 Myr ago). The similarity of the Jurassic age with ophiolite emplacement ages in Yugoslavia and Greece is possible evidence of a middle Jurassic collision of an early Mesozoic Tethyan ridge system with both eastern Europe and central Asia".
