  • Elkins, Lynne J. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2009-02)
    To explore the ability of melting mafic lithologies to produce alkaline ocean-island basalts (OIB), an experimental study was carried out measuring clinopyroxene (Cpx)- melt and garnet (Gt)-melt partition coefficients ...
  • Oschmann, Lynn A. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1991-08)
    Sr, Nd and Pb isotopic analyses of 477 samples representing 30 islands or island groups, 3 seamounts or seamount chains, 2 oceanic ridges and 1 oceanic plateau [for a total of 36 geographic features] are compiled to form ...
  • Kurz, Mark D. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1982-06)
    The concentrations and isotopic compositions of helium have been measured in a number of mantle derived oceanic basalts. The goal of this research is to use the helium isotopic systematics to constrain the nature and ...
  • Humphris, Susan E. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1976-10)
    Considerable geological and geophysical evidence now exists to support the hypothesis that seawater circulates through freshly intruded basalt at the mid-ocean ridges. As a consequence of this process, reactions between ...
  • Snow, Jonathan E. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1993-06)
    This dissertation studies several aspects of the formation of the Earth's oceanic mantle and crust, using a variety of geologic techniques, principally major elements, radiogenic isotopes and trace elements, but including ...
  • Peirce, John Wentworth (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1977-01)
    This thes is is a collection of papers on the paleomagnetics of samples from several Deep Sea Drilling Project (DSDP) sites in the Indian Ocean. These papers present the basic paleomagnetic data, discuss the statistical ...
