Scambelluri, Marco; Bottazzi, P; Trommsdorff, Volkmar; Vannucci, R; Hermann, Joerg; Gomez-Pugnaire, Maria Teresa; Sanchez-Vizcaino, V


We present first trace element analyses of the fluid produced during breakdown of antigorite serpentine, a major dehydration reaction occurring at depth within subducting oceanic plates. Microinclusions filled with crystals+aqueous liquid are disseminated within olivine and orthopyroxene grown at pressures and temperatures beyond the stability field of antigorite. Despite hydrogen loss and significant major element changes that have affected the analyzed inclusions, their trace element...[Show more]
