Deep Lithosphere Dataset Home

The Deep Lithosphere dataset is now part of PetDB. New xenolith data is added regularly.


The deep lithosphere dataset provides analytical data on deep crustal and mantle xenoliths including major and trace element chemistry, isotopic composition of bulk rock and minerals, modal abundance, fluid and melt inclusion data, host rock — xenolith relationships, and thermobarometry, as determined in the original articles.


PetDB Search has a "Mantle Xenolith Data" button to quick-access the data





Xenolith locations as of May, 2016 viewed in the GeoMapApp browser.
