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.
