This 27-slide PowerPoint presentation contains a number of schematic diagrams showing continental arc settings. Chemical comparisons of various continental arc magmas are discussed using isotopic variation and the occurrence of rare earth elements. The presentation also covers isotopes, rare earth element characteristics, and the geographic occurrence of plutonic arcs. This resource is part of the Teaching Petrology collection. http://serc.carleton.edu/NAGTWorkshops/petrology03/index.html
Part of the Cutting Edge collection. The NAGT/DLESE On the Cutting Edge project helps geoscience faculty stay up-to-date with both geoscience research and teaching methods.
