Abstract

The authors comment that Salisbury & Christensen fail to appreciate and incorporate the variability of ophiolites and the overall general complexities of the Bay of Islands ophiolites. The authors argue that Blow-me-Down may not be representative of the Bay of Islands complex as a wole, and that each of geelogical and geometric constraints with regard to their traverse and section does not enable the samples to be precisely orientated nd positioned within the section.-P.N.Chroston
