A geochemical comparison of basalts of Ainsley Beach, Nanoose Bay, B.C. to a back-arc basin
MetadataShow full item record
The aim of this study was to determine the geologic setting in which the basalts at Ainsley Beach were formed, and more specifically if they formed in a back-arc basin setting. Geochemical comparisons between selected Vancouver Island rock units using archived, and newly collected data sets will be analyzed to determine tectonic setting of rock formation.
