Hot lherzolite exhumation, UHT migmatite formation, and acid volcanism driven by Miocene rollback of the Banda Arc, eastern Indonesia
The northern Banda Arc, eastern Indonesia, exposes upper mantle/lower crustal complexes comprising lherzolites and granulite facies migmatites of the 'Kobipoto Complex'. Residual garnet–sillimanite granulites, which contain spinel + quartz inclusions within garnet, experienced ultrahigh-temperature (UHT; > 900˚C) conditions at 16 Ma due to heat supplied by lherzolites exhumed during slab rollback in the Banda Arc. Here, we present U–Pb zircon ages and new whole-rock geochemical analyses that...[Show more]
