Survival times of anomalous melt inclusions from element diffusion in olivine and chromite

Spandler, Carl; O'Neill, Hugh; Kamenetsky, Vadim S

Description

The chemical composition of basaltic magma erupted at the Earth's surface is the end product of a complex series of processes, beginning with partial melting and melt extraction from a mantle source and ending with fractional crystallization and crustal assimilation at lower pressures. It has been proposed that studying inclusions of melt trapped in early crystallizing phenocrysts such as Mg-rich olivine and chromite may help petrologists to see beyond the later-stage processes and back to the...[Show more]
