Mantle melting as a function of water content beneath back-arc basins

  title={Mantle melting as a function of water content beneath back-arc basins},
  author={Katherine A. Kelley and Terry A. Plank and Timothy L Grove and Edward M. Stolper and Sally Newman and Erik H Hauri},
[1] Subduction zone magmas are characterized by high concentrations of H2O, presumably derived from the subducted plate and ultimately responsible for melting at this tectonic setting. Previous studies of the role of water during mantle melting beneath back-arc basins found positive correlations between the H2O concentration of the mantle (H2Oo) and the extent of melting (F), in contrast to the negative correlations observed at mid-ocean ridges. Here we examine data compiled from six back-arc… CONTINUE READING
