Systematics of metals, metalloids, and volatiles in MORB melts: Effects of partial melting, crystal fractionation and degassing (a case study of Macquarie Island glasses)

Kamenetsky, Vadim S; Eggins, Stephen


Magnesian basaltic glasses from the Miocene Macquarie Island ophiolite (SW Pacific) are used for understanding the effects of progressive partial melting of the mantle peridotite, and subsequent magma crystallisation and degassing on the composition of mid-ocean ridge basalts. These glasses are represented by two suites, near-primitive (Group I) and fractionated (Group II), which show clear parent-daughter relationships. Their exceptional compositional diversity in major, trace lithophile and...[Show more]
