Chlorite stability in the subduction zone: Implications for water transport to the deep mantle, slab diapirs and mantle melting

Lakey, Shayne Lawrence


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]
