Gang Zeng, Li-Hui Chen, Sen-Lin Hu, Xi-Sheng Xu and Liang-Feng Yang Genesis of Cenozoic low-Ca alkaline basalts in the Nanjing basaltic field, eastern China: The case for mantle xenolith-magma interaction Geochemistry, Geophysics, Geosystems 14

Version of Record online: 31 MAY 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ggge.20127

Key Points

  • Low-Ca alkaline basalts have been contaminated by melts from mantle xenoliths
  • Low-P melting of peridotite is characterized by residues containing excess cpx
  • Low-P melting of peridotite produces melts with low Ca/Al and high Na/Ti
