This is the third book in a four-part series, cataloguing the world occurrences of alkaline rocks and carbonatites. The first part lists the occurrences in North and South America (Wooley ) while the second part deals with those in the former U.S.S.R. (Kogarko et al. ). The fourth part will cover Asia.

Particular attention is paid to carbonatites, lamprophyres, and lamproites which are rock suites of current interest not recently reviewed. Deformed alkaline rocks and carbonatites (DARCs) are extremely rare rocks. Woolley reported only 32 DARCs among the thousands of alkaline rocks and carbonatites that he catalogued from Africa.

This volume describes and provides ready access to the literature for all known occurrences of alkaline igneous rocks and carbonatites of Antarctica, Asia and Europe excluding the former USSR, Australasia and oceanic islands. More than 1, occurrences from 59 countries are outlined together with those of 57 oceanic islands and island groups.

J.E. Mungall, in Treatise on Geochemistry, Carbonatite. Carbonatites are igneous rocks composed of more than 50% carbonate minerals, usually spatially and temporally associated with alkaline silicate magmas, and have somewhat contentious origins. Although carbonatites make up a vanishingly small proportion of the Earth’s crust, they account for a large number of the world.

This text describes and provides ready access to the literature for all known occurrences of alkaline igneous rocks and carbonatites of Africa. Over occurrences are described from 40 countries. The descriptions include geographical co-ordinates and information of structure, general geology, rock types, petrography, mineralogy, ages, economic aspects and principal references.

An interesting suite of alkaline rocks with nepheline syenite as the most dominant component occurs in the area around Kishangarh, northeast of Ajmer (Fig.

Carbonatite (/ k ɑːr ˈ b ɒ n ə t aɪ t /) is a type of intrusive or extrusive igneous rock defined by mineralogic composition consisting of greater than 50% carbonate minerals.

Carbonatites may be confused with marble and may require geochemical verification. Carbonatites usually occur as small plugs within zoned alkalic intrusive complexes, or as dikes, sills, breccias, and y: carbonate minerals, (> 50%).Alkaline rocks and carbonatites are causing interest once in his book The Alkaline Rocks (Wiley), Woolley Alkaline Rocks and Carbonatites of the World.
