Lithospheric mantle duplex beneath the central Mojave Desert revealed by xenoliths from Dish Hill, California

Abstract

[1] Low-angle subduction of oceanic lithosphere may be an important process in modifying continental lithosphere. A classic example is the underthrusting of the Farallon plate beneath North America during the Laramide orogeny. To assess the relevance of this process to the evolution and composition of continental lithosphere, the mantle stratigraphy beneath… (More)
