Recent Advances in Ideas on the Origin of the Igneous Rocks of the Tertiary Igneous Province—Introduction

  • J. N. Walsh (a1)

Extract

The first five papers of this issue of the Mineralogical Magazine have as a common theme Tertiary Igneous Geology. In May 1983 the Society held a thematic meeting on the igneous rocks of the Tertiary Province and from this has followed a collection of papers, grouped here together for convenience. The range of topics covered is broadly based and the papers demonstrate the extent of current research activity in the area.

All readers of the Magazine will be aware of the extent of the contribution made to igneous petrology and geochemistry by work done on the Tertiary Igneous Province. The Tertiary age of the igneous rocks had been recognized from work during the last century by Sir Archibald Geike and Professor J. W. Judd.
