Exploring the melting behaviour of the Earth's heterogeneous upper mantle

Rosenthal, Anja


The existence, creation and modification of compositional heterogeneities within the Earth's upper mantle and their influences on the petrogenesis of primitive magmas have been highly debated for decades. The possible origins of mantle heterogeneities within the Earth's peridotite-dominated mantle are numerous and complex. One major mechanism invokes an important role for recycling of oceanic crust at subduction zones, and the storage of these recycled mafic (and sedimentary) materials in the...[Show more]
