Geochemistry of rare earth elements in basalts from Walvis Ridge, supplement to: Humphris, Susan E; Thompson, Geoffrey (1983): Geochemistry of rare earth elements in basalts from the Walvis Ridge: implications for its origin and evolution. Earth and Planetary Science Letters, 66, 223-242

Susan E Humphris & Geoffrey Thompson
Selected basalts from a suite of dredged and drilled samples (IPOD sites 525, 527, 528 and 530) from the Walvis Ridge have been analysed to determine their rare earth element (REE) contents in order to investigate the origin and evolution of this major structural feature in the South Atlantic Ocean. All of the samples show a high degree of light rare earth element (LREE) enrichment, quite unlike the flat or depleted patterns normally observed for...
