How is basalt formed

4. SOILS - VRO

Soil Formation on Basalt Basalt releases much calcium and will produce only clay and silt when it weathers to soil. It is one of the most common rocks in the area, so that the black clay soils, uniform texture, coarse structure and grey clay soils (Northcote's Ug category) which develop on the basalt, or the alluvium from it, are widespread. The

Mare Basalt Volcanism

formed in basaltic lava fountains on the lunar surface. Spectral studies by Earth telescope indicate that we did not sample all the lunar basalt types (Head 1976). Chemically, mare basalts can be divided into two broad groups (fig. 10); the older high-Ti group (age 3550 to …
