Probing the Mantle Cargo of Kimberlites – A Geochemical Investigation of Different Mineral Components and Evaluation of their Potential as Petrogenetic and Exploration ToolsDownload
This thesis applies microanalytical tools to the geochemical investigation of different mineral components in the volcanic rock kimberlite. This work significantly advances the application of one of these tools, deep UV (193 nm) laser ablation inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry...
The aluminum-in-olivine thermometer for mantle peridotites — Experimental versus empirical calibration and potential applicationsDownload
This study provides an experimental calibration of the empirical Al-in-olivine thermometer for mantle peridotites proposed by De Hoog et al. (2010). We report Al concentrations measured by secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS) in olivines produced in the original high-pressure, high-temperature,...
The evolution of calcite-bearing kimberlites by melt-rock reaction: evidence from polymineralic inclusions within clinopyroxene and garnet megacrysts from Lac de Gras kimberlites, CanadaDownload
Megacrystic (>1 cm) clinopyroxene (Cr-diopside) and garnet (Cr-pyrope) xenocrysts within kimberlites from Lac de Gras (Northwest Territories, Canada) contain fully crystallized melt inclusions. These ‘polymineralic inclusions’ have previously been interpreted to form by necking down of melts at...
