Redox-variability and controls in subduction zones from an iron-isotope perspective

Nebel, Oliver; Sossi, Paolo; Benard, Antoine; Wille, Martin; Vroon, P.Z.; Arculus, Richard


An ongoing controversy in mantle geochemistry concerns the oxidation state of the sources of island arc lavas (IAL). Three key factors control oxidation-reduction (redox) of IAL sources: (i) metasomatism of the mantle wedge by fluids and/or melts, liberated from the underlying subducted slab; (ii) the oxidation state of the wedge prior to melting and metasomatism; and (iii) the loss of melt from IAL sources. Subsequently, magmatic differentiation by fractional crystallisation, possible crustal...[Show more]
