The fiux of halogens into the Earth's mantle at subduction zones is a critical yet poorly constrained parameter in the geochemical evolution of the planet. Here we report the first ever combined high-precision measurements of chlorine, bromine, and iodine for backarc basin basalt (BABB) and ocean island basalt (OIB) glasses. The measurements were undertaken in order to evaluate the depth and extent of the halogen subduction cycle by comparing: (1) melts formed in the Manus Basin (Papua New...[Show more]
