Volatile-rich silicate melts from Oldoinyo Lengai volcano (Tanzania): Implications for carbonatite genesis and eruptive behaviour

de Moor, J Maarten; Fischer, Tobias; King, Penelope; Botcharnikov, Roman; Hervig, Richard; Hilton, David; Barry, Peter; Mangasini, Frederick; Ramirez, Carlos


This study presents volatile, trace, and major element compositions of silicate glasses (nepheline-hosted melt inclusions and matrix glass) from the 2007-2008 explosive eruption at Oldoinyo Lengai volcano, Tanzania. The bulk compositions of the heterogeneous ash erupted in 2007-2008 are consistent with physical mixing between juvenile nephelinite magma and natrocarbonatite emplaced during the preceding ~25 years of effusive carbonatite eruption. The melt inclusions and matrix glasses span a...[Show more]
