In continental arcs the extension of geothermal gradients derived from shallow crustal levels to depth predicts widespread melting at pressures that are inconsistent with seismic studies. Numerical models of low-pressure metamorphism in continental arcs suggest that these extrapolations are problematic because magmatic advection is the dominant mechanism of heat transport in these terranes rather than conduction from the base of the lithosphere. Metamorphic thermobarometry data from the middle… CONTINUE READING
