Trace Elements in Igneous Processes

William M. White, Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, Cornell University

This site is a chapter from a book on geochemistry by Dr. W. M. White used in a geochemistry course at Cornell University. All aspects of trace elements are discussed, including the definition, distribution, and behavior of trace elements, as well as their importance in igneous petrology. Figures accompany the text.
