[MIS02-16] Overview of the physical property measurements, ChikyuOman 2017 and 2018: Crust and Mantle sections from ICDP Oman Drilling Project Phase I and II
Keywords:ICDP, D/V Chikyu, Oman Drilling Project, ophiolite, oceanic crust
Whole-round data, including X-ray CT images, natural gamma radiation (NGR), gamma ray attenuation (GRA) density, magnetic susceptibility (MS), P-wave velocity (Vp) and noncontact electrical resistivity were obtained. Split core color spectroscopy data were also collected. Magnetic susceptibility, electrical resistivity under both nominally dry and brine-saturated conditions, P-wave velocity, bulk/grain density, porosity and thermal conductivity were measured in discrete samples. Nearly 100% core recovery allowed us to take a large data set of petrophysical data on the cores from Oman ophiolite including fault zones and highly altered intervals.
Generally, gabbroic rock types have higher density, P-wave velocity, and electrical resistivity, and lower porosity than ultramafic lithologies. Serpentinized dunite have lower density, P-wave velocity and electrical resistivity, and higher porosity than serpentinized harzburgite, and these physical properties are correlated with magnetic susceptibility, probably due to crystallization of magnetite during alteration. Average X-ray CT values are also correlated with many other physical properties in most lithologies.
