Two mantle domains and timescales of fluid transfer beneath the Vanuatu arc
U-Th isotope disequilibria can provide constraints on the time elapsed since fluid addition to the mantle wedge beneath island arcs. The Vanuatu arc offers new insights into these processes because Pb isotopes there are not dominated by components from the subducting plate and so preserve the signatures of the mantle wedge. The Pb isotope data document the presence of separate Pacific and Indian mantle domains beneath the arc volcanoes. The Indian mantle was brought beneath the central part of...[Show more]
