Fluorine partitioning between eclogitic garnet, clinopyroxene, and melt at upper mantle conditions

Beyer, C.; Klemme, S.; Grützner, T.; Ireland, Trevor; Magee, C. W.; Frost, D. J.


Halogens show a range from moderate (F) to highly (Cl, Br, I) volatile and incompatible behavior, which makes them excellent tracers for volatile transport processes in the Earth’s mantle. Experimentally determined fluorine and chlorine partitioning data between mantle minerals and silicate melt enable us to estimate Mid Ocean Ridge Basalt (MORB) and Ocean Island Basalt (OIB) source region concentrations for these elements. This study investigates the effect of varying small amounts of water on...[Show more]
