Progressive mixing of meteoritic veneer into the early Earth's deep mantle

Maier, Wolfgang D.; Barnes, Stephen J.; Campbell, Ian; Fiorentini, Marco; Peltonen, Peter; Barnes, S.-J.; Smithies, R H

Description

Komatiites are ancient volcanic rocks, mostly over 2.7 billion years old (from the Archaean era), that formed through high degrees of partial melting of the mantle and therefore provide reliable information on bulk mantle compositions. In particular, the
