Mt Bambouto Volcano, Cameroon Line: Mantle Source and Differentiation of Within-plate Alkaline Rocks
The Late Cretaceous-Quaternary Cameroon Volcanic Line (CVL) is a 1600km long chain of volcanoes that straddles the continent-ocean boundary and extends from the Gulf of Guinea to the interior of the African continent. The magmatic activity started at 70Ma and has continued until the present. The products of this magmatic activity are distinctive in terms of petrology and isotope geochemistry, the variety of volcanic rocks ranging from ultrabasic, alkaline to sub-alkaline lavas to highly evolved...[Show more]
