Experimental study of trace element release during ultrahigh-pressure serpentinite dehydration

Spandler, Carl; Hermann, Joerg; Pettke, Thomas

Description

Subduction of serpentinite is envisaged to play a key role in volatile and element recycling at convergent plate margins, but there is currently little known about the composition of the fluid phase(s) released by devolatilisation of deeply subducted serpentinite. We have performed a series of ultrahigh pressure experiments to examine the phase relations and fluid compositions produced by reaction of a natural serpentinite under sub-arc conditions. We employ a novel technique of forming...[Show more]
