Generation of talc in the mantle wedge and its role in subduction dynamics in central Mexico


a r t i c l e i n f o a b s t r a c t Keywords: subduction talc serpentine receiver function mantle wedge P-to-S velocity ratio Geophysical evidence shows the presence of low-seismic velocity material at the surface of slabs in subduction zones. In the central Mexican subduction zone this appears as a thin (∼4 km) low-velocity zone that absorbs nearly all… (More)
