Genetic aspects of basalts from the Carlsberg Ridge
MetadataShow full item record
The origin of the basaltic rocks with heterogeneous composition from the Carlsberg Ridge (CR) is of interest for more than one reason. In comparison to other Mid-Oceanic Ridge (MOR) systems sufficient data on petrochemical and petrographical aspects of the CR rocks are sparse. The bulk chemical, mineral chemical and ore mineralization aspects of the dredged basalts from a segment of the CR (at 3°37¢N, 64°57¢E) are synthesized to indicate the influence of fractional crystallization coupled with magma mixing on their genesis.
