The interplay between melting, refertilization and carbonatite metasomatism in off-cratonic lithospheric mantle under Zealandia: An integrated major, trace and platinum group element study
It is widely accepted that stabilization of the continental crust requires the presence of sub-continental lithospheric mantle. However, the degree of melt depletion required to stabilize the lithosphere and whether widespread refertilization is a significant process remain unresolved. Here, major and trace element, including platinum group elements (PGE), characterization of 40 mantle xenoliths from 13 localities is used to constrain the melt depletion, refertilization and metasomatic history...[Show more]
