Hydrous minerals subducted at convergent margins provide the bulk of water to arc magmas. At temperatures beyond serpentinite stability, chlorite becomes the main water-bearing contributor in the subduction zone. The maximum stability field of chlorite is not well constrained, and the experimental studies which have been conducted have involved synthesis experiments using chlorite of clinochlore composition which may not adequately represent the variety of behaviour of naturally-occurring...[Show more]
