Crystallization temperatures of tholeiite parental liquids: Implications for the existence of thermally driven mantle plumes

Falloon, Trevor; Green, David; Danyushevsky, Leonid V.


To compare magmatic crystallization temperatures between ocean island basalt (OIB) proposed to be plume-related and normal mid-ocean ridge basalt (MORB) parental liquids, we have examined and compared in detail three representative magmatic suites from both ocean island (Hawaii, Iceland, and Réunion) and mid-ocean ridge settings (Cocos-Nazca, East Pacific Rise, and Mid-Atlantic Ridge). For each suite we have good data on both glass and olivine phenocryst compositions, including volatile (H2O)...[Show more]
