Determining the Source for the Magmas of Monte Amiata (Central Italy) Using Strontium, Neodymium, and Lead Isotope Analysis

  title={Determining the Source for the Magmas of Monte Amiata (Central Italy) Using Strontium, Neodymium, and Lead Isotope Analysis},
  author={Kristen M. James},
Monte Amiata is a recently extinct volcano that produced trachydacites and a few small olivine latite flows. The Amiata suite showed crustal strontium, neodymium, and lead isotopic signatures. Sr/Sr ratio values ranged from 0.712447 to 0.713068 and Nd/Nd ratios ranged from 0.512094 to 0.512203. Pb/Pb values ranged from 15.6694 to 16.2330 and Pb/Pb ratios ranged from 18.7125 to 19.0882. The olivine latite flows towards the end of volcanic activity would suggest more mantle influence than the…

Source contamination and mantle heterogeneity in the genesis of Italian potassic and ultrapotassic volcanic rocks: Sr–Nd–Pb isotope data from Roman Province and Southern Tuscany
Summary The Tyrrhenian border of the Italian peninsula has been the site of intense magmatism from Pliocene to recent times. Although calc-alkaline, potassic and ultrapotassic volcanism overlaps in
Geochemical and isotopic variations in the calc-alkaline rocks of Aeolian arc, southern Tyrrhenian Sea, Italy: constraints on magma genesis
New geochemical and isotopic data are reported for calc-alkaline (CA) volcanics of the Aeolian arc. Three main groups are recognized: the Alicudi and Filicudi volcanics in the western part of the
The volcanism of southern Italy: Role of subduction and the relationship between potassic and sodic alkaline magmatism
The ultrapotassic magmatism of southern Italy (the Roman province) is well known, and recently these highly unusual lavas have been explained in terms of subduction-related processes. Less well
Crustal contamination versus enriched mantle: 143Nd/144Nd and 87Sr/86Sr evidence from the Italian volcanics
Abstract143Nd/144Nd, 87Sr/86Sr, and REE analyses are presented on a wide variety of Pliocene-Recent volcanic rocks from central Italy. 143Nd/144Nd varies from 0.51214–0.51289 and 87Sr/86Sr from
