The "calc-alkaline" series of rocks was originally defined in the early 1930s on the basis of the "alkali-lime index" on a combined SiO2 versus (Na2O + K2O) and SiO2 versus CaO plot. The usage of the term has evolved considerably since, and today it is used variably for the subalkalic basaltandesite-dacite-rhyolite suite, or any rock suite containing andesite, or island-arc rocks, or rocks with high ratios of large-ion-lithophile elements (LILE) to high-field-strength elements (HFSE), or simply… Expand
