Episodic nature of continental arc activity since 750 Ma: A global compilation

Episodic nature of continental arc activity since 750 Ma: A global compilation Wenrong Cao, Cin-Ty Lee, Jade Star Lackey Earth and Planetary Science Letters (2017) 461:85-95 http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.epsl.2016.12.044 Continental arcs have been recently hypothesized to outflux large amounts of CO2 compared to island arcs so that global flare-ups in continental arc magmatism might drive long-term greenhouse […]
