A review of South African research on volcanic rocks and mantle processes, 1987-1991

Verwoerd W.J. (1992)

Although South African scientists are seldom concerned with active volcanism, some other topics falling under the dual ambit of the International Association of Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth's Interior are of long-standing importance in South African geology, for example plateau basalts, ignimbrites, komatites, kimberlites and carbonatites. Most of this research is orientated towards the petrographic and geochemical characteristics of lavas, intrusives and deep-seated xenoliths in order to attempt to understand processes in ther upper mantle of the Earth. -from Author
