Magmatic stratigraphy in the Bushveld Northern Lobe: continuous geophysical and mineralogical data from the 2950 m Bellevue drillcore
We present a large database of geophysical, petrological and mineralogical measurements for the ~3000 m Bellevue borehole through the entire Upper Zone (UZ) and about half of the Main Zone (MZ) ofExpand

Petrogenesis of Neoproterozoic Granitoids and Related Rocks from the Seychelles: the Case for an Andean-type Arc Origin
compositions ( Nd 750 = +5·46 to −0·87; ISr 750 = 0·7021– The Seychelles islands consist of undeformed and unmetamorphosed, 0·7061) that can be modelled as basaltic magmas derived from metaluminousExpand

Sedimentology, geochronology and provenance of the Proterozoic Itremo Group, central Madagascar, and implications for pre-Gondwana palaeogeography
Proterozoic metasediments of the Itremo Group in central Madagascar probably represent a passive margin sequence predating Gondwana assembly. The quartzites are well-sorted quartz arenites thatExpand

Peri-Gondwanan elements in the Caledonian Nappes of Finnmark, Northern Norway: Implications for the paleogeographic framework of the Scandinavian Caledonides
The Kalak Nappe Complex in the northern Scandinavian Caledonides has historically been interpreted as representing the pre-Caledonian margin of Baltica consisting of a Precambrian basement and a lateExpand

THE TEMPORALITY OF ANORTHOSITES
The compositions, textures, associated rocks and tectonic environments of anorthosites allow categorization into six different types, some of which show distinct age-restrictions in terrestrial andExpand

Late Cretaceous India–Madagascar fit and timing of break‐up related magmatism
A U–Pb zircon age of 91.2 ± 0.2 Myr from western India (St. Mary islands) confidently links India with the Late Cretaceous magmatic province in Madagascar (≈ 84–92 Ma), and the U–Pb age is withinExpand

Late Cretaceous magmatism in Madagascar: palaeomagnetic evidence for a stationary Marion hotspot
Late Cretaceous basaltic volcanics in the Morondava Basin (SW Madagascar) possess high-quality and pre-fold palaeomagnetic data (declination 353.5°, inclination −54.8°, α95 = 2.4°). TheExpand
