Continuing the tradition of International Dyke Conference; this ebook; Dyke Swarms of the World: A Modern Perspective (PDF) is largely based on contributions from the IDC7 but also includes some chapters by invitation. It focuses on mafic dyke swarms and related associations: e.g. links with sills; syenites; kimberlites; carbonatites; and volcanics; discussing the following themes: (i) regional maps/reviews of dyke swarms and related units; (ii) the role of giant dyke swarms in the reconstruction of paleocontinents/supercontinents; (iii) mapping of dykes using remote sensing techniques; (iv) geochronology of dyke swarms; (v) geochemistry; petrology; and petrogenesis of dykes; (vi) emplacement mechanism of dykes; (vii) dyke swarms and planetary bodies; and (viii) links to mineralization and resources.
