Re-Os isotopes have been measured on postorogenic potassic lavas from the Tibetan Plateau, the Betic domain of southeastern Spain, and the Colorado Plateau of the southwestern United States. Previous work has established that these lavas were all derived from parts of the subcontinental lithospheric mantle that had undergone metasomatic enrichment in incompatible elements, following various degrees of melt depletion. Cratonic depleted subcontinental lithospheric mantle peridotites typically… CONTINUE READING
