Oceanic Intraplate Volcanism

John Winter, Department of Geology

This PowerPoint presentation is part of the Whitman College petrology course. This 29-slide presentation covers the compositional evolution of basalt using high field strength, large-ion lithophile, rare earth elements, and isotope geochemistry. Mantle reservoirs (depleted mantle, bulk silicate earth, enriched mantle, prevalent mantle, High mu mantle) are discussed and illustrated. 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.
