Alkaline-Carbonatitic magmatism

                          ◄ Back to journal


In the last twenty years the alkaline and carbonatitic magmatism have gained a considerable economic interest mainly due to the enrichment in the rocks of elements of considerable economic interest, as REE, Ta, Nb, Zr, U, Th. Moreover, besides their economic impact, alkaline-carbonatitic rocks provide important informations telative to the isotopic signatures and other geochemical features relative to the mechanism of magmatic evolution tracing the evolution of the Earth through the geological and geodynamical history.

This special issue is dedicated to Professor L.G. Gwalani for his important contributions above all on the genesis of alkaline rocks, carbonatites, lamprophyres, lamproite, kimberlites, flood basalts and associated intrusive complexes.
