The effect of temperature on the equilibrium distribution of trace elements between clinopyroxene, orthopyroxene, olivine and spinel in upper mantle peridotite

Witt-Eickschen, G; O'Neill, Hugh


The abundance of 30 trace elements has been determined in the minerals of 16 well-equilibrated spinel lherzolite xenoliths by laser-ablation inductively-coupled-plasma mass-spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS). Major elements were analysed by electron microprobe. The xenoliths span a range of equilibration temperatures from 1150 to 1500 K (calculated at an assumed pressure of 1.5 GPa from two-pyroxene geothermometry), allowing the trace-element partitioning relationships among the phases (olivine,...[Show more]
