Figure F24. Plots of MgO vs. Fe2O3T and TiO2 for basaltic rock samples, Hole U1382A. Data for aphyric and porphyritic basalts from corresponding depths in Hole 395A (Rhodes et al., 1979; Bougault et al., 1979) are also shown for comparison. The possible olivine fractionation and plagioclase accumulation lines are for illustrative purpose only and are not intended as lines of best fit or to imply that the basalts are related simply by olivine and plagioclase fractionation. Fe2O3T = total iron as Fe2O3.
