Kendrick, Mark; Hemond, C.; Kamenetsky, V. S.; Danyushevsky, L.; Devey, C.; Rodemann, T.; Jackson, M. G.; Perfit, M. R.


The extent to which water and halogens have primordial origins in the Earth's mantle, or are dominated by seawater-derived components introduced by subduction, remains a matter of debate. About 90% of non-radiogenic xenon in the Earth's mantle has a subducted atmospheric origin, but the degree to which atmospheric gases and other seawater components are coupled during subduction is unclear. Here we present the concentrations of water and halogens in samples of magmatic glasses collected from...[Show more]
