THE generation of calc-alkaline magmas in subduct ion zones is thought to be the most important mechanism for the growth of continental crust since the Proterozoic eon. It is widely assumed that most of these magmas are products of fluid-triggered melting in the mantle wedge above the subducted slab1,2. Fluid transport from the subducted slab into the zone of melting has also been invoked in order to explain many of the trace element and radiogenic isotope characteristics of calk-alkaline… CONTINUE READING
