Kimberlites I: Kimberlites and Related Rocks. Kimberlites II: The Mantle and Crust-Mantle Relationships



These volumes open with a tribute to academician Vladimir Stepanovich Sobolev, who died several days before the opening of the Third International Kimberlite Conference at Clermont Ferrand, France. V.S. Sobolev made major contributions to the field of kimberlite and upper mantle petrology throughout his lifetime and did much to spark the renaissance in this field that led to these conferences.
