Magmatic origin of low-Ca olivine in subduction-related magmas: Co-existence of contrasting magmas

Kamenetsky, Vadim S; Elburg, Marlina; Arculus, Richard; Thomas, Rainer


Unravelling the origin of different components contributing to subduction-related magmas is a prerequisite to understanding the sources and processes involved in their origins. Mafic, high-Ca subduction-related magmas from geographically-diverse areas (Indonesia, Solomon Islands, Kamchatka, Valu Fa Ridge) contain two populations of olivine crystals, of which only the high-Ca population (CaO = 0.3-0.5 wt.%) crystallized from the melt that dominantly contributed to the whole rock composition....[Show more]
