The Mineralogy and Petrology of Carbonatites: A Tribute to John Gittins

Volume 46, Part 4, 2008
Editors : R. H. Mitchell, A. R. Chakhmouradian, D. R. Lentz, R. F. Martin

This collection of papers is published as a tribute to the long and distinguished career of John Gittins, Professor Emeritus of Geology, University of Toronto.

The 22 articles that make up the issue cover virtually every aspect of carbonatite petrogenesis and reflect our current understanding of these unusual rocks.

It will hopefully provide a step forward toward the resolution of some of the outstanding controversies surrounding carbonatites.
