AbstractI love ophiolites. They contain a huge variety of rocks, preserved and arrayed on a scale that makes every outcrop a possible discovery site! Had I the option, I would spend the rest of my career investigating the Bay of Islands Complex in Newfoundland, where the rocks wait for someone who has the patience to listen to their story.
