INTRODUCTION


The Rocking Mantle Group (RMG), at Nanjing University, is mainly engaged in the research of Igneous Petrology and Mantle Geochemistry.

Based on the field investigation, petrographic observation and geochemical study utilizing integrated tracer of elements and isotopes (e.g.,Sr, Nd, Pb, Hf and Mg) of mantle-derived volcanic rocks, we are aiming to study: (1) the chemical composition and evolution of mantle, (2) the melting process occurred in mantle, and (3) the deep and shallow evolution of magma.
