Basalt types: tholeiites vs alkali basalts Lucky Sci

31/07/2014 Basalt types: tholeiites vs alkali basalts. Cortney July 31, 2014 Science & Technology + geochemistry, geology, hawaii, magma. Leave a reply. Essentially, tholeiites are less evolved. They have different normalized rare earth element REE signatures: when normalized by chondrites, the more primitive tholeiites have flatter REE patterns, while calc-alkalis show enrichment in the light REEs

Basalt

Geologists classify igneous rock by its mineral content whenever possible, with the relative volume percentages of quartz, alkali feldspar, plagioclase, and feldspathoid (QAPF) being particularly important. An aphanitic(fine-grained) igneous rock is classified as basalt when its QAPF fraction is composed of less than 10% feldspathoid and less than 20% quartz, with plagioclase making up at least 65% of its feldspar co

Types of Oceanic basalts

Types of Oceanic basalts. Basalt is a fine-grained igneous rock composed mainly of plagioclase and pyroxene, and it is black because it has a high iron content.

Alkali basalt

Alkali basalt or alkali olivine basalt is a dark-colored, porphyritic volcanic rock usually found in oceanic and continental areas associated with volcanic activity, such as oceanic islands, continental rifts and volcanic fields. Alkali basalt is characterized by relatively high alkali (Na 2 O and K 2 O) content relative to other basalts and by the presence of olivine and titanium-rich

For this reason, they will be hereafter-named medium-Ti basalts (MTB). These rocks have been
