Includes the following session:

T31. Magmatic processes of the Midwestern Proterozoic: Mid-Continent Rift to St. Francois Mountains

Convenor: Craig Lundstrom (

While out stable platform location now leads to little igneous activity, the Proterozoic provided a great deal of magmatism, which emplaced large amounts of basaltic to rhyolitic magmas. This session solicits contributions related to igneous petrology of the Midcontinent Rift and Granite-Rhyolite Province. Observations, experiments, and numerical models of petrogenesis are welcomed.
