Geochemical heterogeneity and element mobility in deeply subducted oceanic crust; insights from high-pressure mafic rocks from New Caledonia

Spandler, Carl; Hermann, Joerg; Arculus, Richard; Mavrogenes, John


Bulk-rock major and trace element geochemistry of a range of eclogite, garnet blueschist and garnet amphibolite rocks from northern New Caledonia has been determined in order to geochemically characterise subducted oceanic crust. The rocks experienced peak metamorphic conditions of 1.9 GPa and 600 °C and represent excellent samples of oceanic crust that was subducted to depths of approximately 60 km. The rocks can be divided into seven rock types that respectively have geochemical...[Show more]
