Solidus of alkaline carbonatite in the deep mantle

Litasov, Konstantin; Shatskiy, Anton; Ohtani, Eiji; Yaxley, Gregory


Minor amounts of alkalies (Na and K) can reduce drastically the solidus temperatures of carbonated silicate mantle, by as much as 400-500 °C. Low-degree melting of carbonated peridotite and eclogite at pressures of 3-10 GPa produces Na- and K-bearing car
