The global pattern of trace-element distributions in ocean floor basalts

O'Neill, Hugh; Jenner, Frances

Description

The magmatic layers of the oceanic crust are created at constructive plate margins by partial melting of the mantle as it wells up. The chemistry of ocean floor basalts, the most accessible product of this magmatism, is studied for the insights it yields
