Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
The Kola Alkaline Province contains the world’s largest peralkaline and alkaline-ultrabasic massifs (Khibiny, Lovozero, Kovdor, Tury Mys, etc.), with giant deposits of strategic and critical metals, including Fe, Ti, Nb, Ta, Zr, Al, Na, K, Sc, REE, and P. Aspects of their genesis include plumes, magmatic reservoirs, magmatic and post-magmatic differentiation, geochemistry of incompatible elements, subsolidus events, plication and fault tectonics, accumulation and emission of hydrogen and hydrocarbon gases, etс. In addition, the Kola Alkaline Province is the world’s largest source of new mineral species (above 300) and natural prototypes of important functional materials (ETS-4, AM-4, IE-911, SIV, etc.), which makes it a source of important information on the crystal chemistry and conditions of synthesis of new mineral-like compounds.
This Special Issue will cover a wide range of topics related to the problems of geology, tectonics, petrology, geochemistry, mineralogy, and crystal chemistry of the Kola alkaline complexes, as well as technological problems of deep ore processing.
This Special Issue is dedicated to Dr. Gregory Yu. Ivanyuk on the occasion of his unexpected passing.
