Geochemical Modelling of Shallow Fractionation and Deep Mantle Melting Below Mauna Loa Volcano, Hawaii

Prichard, Jennifer


Hawaii is the archetypal example of intra-plate 'hotspot' volcanism, yet the mechanisms of plume formation, hotspot volcano formation, and the nature of chemical heterogeneity in hotspot lavas such as those at Hawaii remain in question. Of particular interest is understanding what physical and chemical processes lead to the distinctive 'double-track' geochemical trend, whereby the volcanoes on the south-west side of the Hawaiian volcanic chain ('Loa' track) vary systematically compared...[Show more]
