Continental Alkaline Magmatism Alk.ppt

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.

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.
