Abstract/Summary

This report describes the general geological setting of Cyprus and the regional variation in lithological, geotechnical and mineralogical properties of the main cohesive soil formations (comprising marls, bentonitic clays, and 'melange') associated with the Troodos Ophiolite Complex. The rport serves as an adjunct to more detailed 'study area' reports describing the Nicosia Marls of central Cyprus; the Polis Marls of NW Cyprus; and the Kannaviou Formation bentonitic clays, the Melange, and other cohesive deposits derived from allochthanous Mamonia Complex rocks in the Phiti-Statos area of SW Cyprus. The report highlights the uncertainties in attempting to assess regional variations in geotechnical properties based on comparison and extrapolation of data from individual site-specific study areas and sampling localities.
