Lithospheric Mantle Evolution beneath the Eifel (Germany): Constraints from Sr-Nd-Pb Isotopes and Trace Eelement Abundances in Spinel Peridotite and Pyroxenite Xenoliths

Witt-Eickschen, G; Seck, H; Mezger, Klaus; Eggins, Stephen; Altherr, R


The Pb isotope compositions of amphiboles and clinopyroxenes in spinel peridotite and pyroxenite mantle xenoliths from the intra-plate Quaternary volcanic fields of the Eifel province (Germany) are strongly correlated with their Sr-Nd isotope and trace element compositions. High-temperature anhydrous xenoliths from a depth of around 60 km have trace element and Sr-Nd-Pb isotope compositions similar to the depleted source of mid-ocean ridge basalts (Depleted MORB Mantle, DMM). Amphibole-bearing...[Show more]
