Their eruption temperature of 1,ºC contrasts with ~1,ºC for basalts. Komatiites are ubiquitous in Archean greenstone terranes but are rare in Proterozoic or Phanerozoic counterparts (Arndt, ). Together with basalts, they represent intraoceanic plateaus or continental flood basalts. Full text of "A glossary of the mining and mineral industry" See other formats.

High. Rock formations in the rift zone As the crust began to rift or split apart, volcanoes became active in the western Lake Superior region and violently ejected volcanic cinder, ash, and bombs.

Then, somewhat subdued, these volcanoes poured out lava from long vents in quiet eruption. This lava is today called the Portage Lake Lava formation.

The name Proterozoic combines the two forms of ultimately Greek origin: protero-meaning "former, earlier", and -zoic, a suffix related to zoe "life".
