Abstract: Lithospheric xenoliths are a convenient and relatively cost efficient means of gaining an insight into the petrology of the deep earth. As such, they provide important information on lithospheric structure and processes and can be used to gauge thermal regime and possibly , the timing of events. Lithospheric xenoliths were collected in the 1989/90 and 1990/91 season from Marie Byrd Land, West ... View entire text
