Middle Miocene volcanism in the vicinity of the Middle Hungarian zone: Evidence for an inherited enriched mantle source

Kovacs, Istvan; Szabo, Csaba


Middle Miocene igneous rocks in the vicinity of the Middle Hungarian zone (MHZ) show a number of subduction-related geochemical characteristics. Many of these characteristics appear to be time-integrated, showing a decreasing subduction signature with time. In contrast to previous models, which suggest southward-dipping subduction of European lithosphere beneath the Alcapa microplate (along the Western Carpathians) is responsible for the chemical characteristics seen in middle Miocene...[Show more]
