Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


For the Permian–Triassic foidite and meimechite lavas of Polar Siberia, both the whole-rock petrochemistry and geochemistry and that of melt inclusions in olivine phenocrysts from the same rocks have been demonstrated to be similar. In addition, their isotope characteristics imply the possibility of their generation from an abyssal parental melt compositionally resembling a high–Mg alkaline picrite.
