Tosi, Federico (2013) Magmatismo basaltico dei Colli Euganei. [Laurea triennale]
Full text disponibile come:
The volcanic activity of the Euganean Hills is part of the Tertiary Magmatic Province Veneta, and consists mainly in the issue of basic and acid products and over a period of time between the late Eocene and the Oligocene. The basic rocks are represented mainly by basalts. The geochemical study by X-ray fluorescence conducted on samples of Monte Oliveto and Monte Lovertino showed a strong bimodal character between these: a general enrichment in alkali and incompatible elements for the Lovertino group and a decidedly more tholeiitic character for the Oliveto basalts. The fractional crystallization was discarded as a possible link between the two magmas, as observed by modeling MELTS, in favor of a distinct parental magma issued from a similar mantle source yet at different melting degree (lower for Lovertino) or melting depth (deeper for Lovertino).
