Abstract On 27 January 2010 a small eruption of basaltic lava occurred 75 km NE of Quetta, Pakistan. This was highly unusual− no eruptions from this magmatically inactive area have ever been reported. Two petrographically distinct basalts types were indentified in the vesicular eruptive products. One basalt type consists of completely fresh, light brown glass with a few (<1 vol.%) partially resorbed quartz-rich xenoliths, whereas the other type is non-glassy and the lava is completely… 
Comments on the eruption of basaltic magma at Tor Zawar, Balochistan, Pakistan on 27 January 2010, with a discussion of the geochemical and petrological constraints on its petrogenesis
Abstract An article by A. C. Kerr and coworkers published in 2010 in Mineralogical Magazine (74, 1027-1036), reviewed an event that was interpreted as the eruption of a basaltic flow on 27th January
Occurrences of rock-fulgurites associated with steel pylons of the overhead electric transmission line at Tor Zawar, Ziarat District and Jang Tor Ghar, Muslim Bagh, Pakistan
We here report 3 occurrences of rock fulgurites: 2 at Tor Zawar, Ziarat District, and 1 at Jang Tor Ghar, Muslim Bagh, Pakistan. The first and second melting events occurred at Tor Zawar, Ziarat on

Plume-Associated Ultramafic Magmas of Phanerozoic Age
the importance of ultramafic magmatism is often diminA parameterization of experimental data in the 0·2–7·0 GPa pressure range constrains both forward models of potential primary ished in models of
Primary Magmas at Mid-Ocean Ridges, 'Hotspots,' and Other Intraplate Settings: Constraints on Mantle Potential Temperature
Intraplate, “hotspot,” and mid-ocean ridge basalts (MORB) are characteristic of the modern Earth, and within the plate tectonics interpretation of the Earth’s behavior become the basis for a
Platinum-group element geochemistry of mantle eclogites: a reconnaissance study of xenoliths from the Orapa kimberlite, Botswana
Abstract Eclogite xenoliths recovered from kimberlites and alkali basalts are clinoproxene and garnet rich rocks formed at high pressures within the mantle. They are broadly 'basaltic' in composition
An overview of adakite petrogenesis
The term adakite was originally proposed to define silica-rich, high Sr/Y and La/Yb volcanic and plutonic rocks derived from melting of the basaltic portion of oceanic crust subducted beneath
Heterogeneity in southern Central Indian Ridge MORB: Implications for ridge-hot spot interaction
Between the Rodrigues Triple Junction and the Marie Celeste fracture zone, basalts from the Central Indian Ridge (CIR) exhibit an enrichment in incompatible elements that increases in intensity
