John Winter, Department of Geology


This 32 slide PowerPoint presentation presents a list of alkaline rocks followed by an in depth look at continental alkaline magmatism of the East African Rift system. A chemical, geographic, and structural look at carbonatites follows. The presentation progresses through discussions of lamproites, lamprophyres, and kimberlites. 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.
