Subduction zone or arc magmas are known to display a characteristic depletion of High Field Strength Elements (HFSE) relative to other similarly incompatible elements, which can be attributed to the presence of the accessory mineral rutile (TiO2) in the residual slab. Here we show that the partitioning behavior of vanadium between rutile and silicate melt varies from incompatible (~0.1) to compatible (~18) as a function of oxygen fugacity. We also confirm that the HFSE are compatible in rutile,...[Show more]
