TiO2 and a possible guide to past oceanic spreading rates

Nisbet, E. and Pearce, Julian A. 1973. TiO2 and a possible guide to past oceanic spreading rates. Nature 246 (5434) , pp. 468-470. 10.1038/246468a0

THE work reported here shows that there is some sort of systematic relationship between the titanium content of present-day ocean-floor basalts and spreading rate. This simple geochemical indicator can be applied to estimate ancient spreading rates using basalts and spilites from ophiolite complexes.
