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.
