We present trace element data for 80 samples from about 50 seamounts in the east equatorial Pacific near the East Pacific Ž . Rise. These data indicate that the heterogeneous mantle source that supplies the seamounts consists of two components: 1 Ž . an extremely depleted component, much more depleted than estimates of the source of depleted MORB; and 2 an enriched component even more enriched than average OIB. The depleted component shows large variations in ZrrHf, NbrTa, RbrCs, CerPb, and… CONTINUE READING
