Several different databases and models have been developed over many years of petrological study carried out by several European and non-European groups on mantle xenoliths, peridotite massifs, ophiolites and mafic magmas spanning in age from Archaean to Recent times. This volume aims to bring together these different approaches and to integrate the geochemical perceptions of the European upper mantle. The papers include regional petrological studies of the European lithospheric mantle, from Spain to the Pannonian Basin, from Corsica and Serbia as far north as Svalbard. Six contributions are based on studies of mantle xenoliths, while the remaining three deal with ophiolitic and peridotitic complexes. A further article provides an update on the textural classification of mantle rocks using a computer-aided approach and there is an introductory overview.

What People are Saying About This

Istvan Koyacs

The book is an excellent compilation of ten contributions from difficult fields of mantle petrology, summarizing important episodes of the petrological evolution of the European lithospheric mantle.

The design and layout of the book is excellent. Only a very few minor typos were picked up upon reading, and in some cases, the quality of the maps and photomicrographs could have been slightly improved to more conveniently guide the reader. These minor shortcomings, however, do not influence the overall excellent quality of the book.

All in all, I strongly recommend this volume, not only to mantle petrologists but also to volcanologists who want to have a look at the ""other side"" of the caldera .. —Istvan Koyacs (Bull Volcanol 2011)
