Toward a Greater Kerguelen large igneous province: Evolving mantle source contributions in and around the Indian Ocean

Olierook, Hugo; Merle, Renaud; Jourdan, Fred


The link between the Kerguelen large igneous province and several moderately-voluminous magmatic domains emplaced on continental crust near the relict triple junction of eastern Gondwana remains tentative. In particular, linking Sr–Nd–Pb isotopic ratios of the 90,000 km2 submerged Naturaliste Plateau at the relict triple junction of eastern Gondwana to the Kerguelen LIP were difficult due to previous age estimates of ca. 100 Ma. Sericite hydrothermal plateau ages as old as 127.6 ± 0.6 Ma...[Show more]
