G-cubed: High-Pressure Phase Relations of a Depleted Peridotite Fluxed by CO2-H2O-Bearing Siliceous Melts and the Origin of Mid-Lithospheric Discontinuity

High-Pressure Phase Relations of a Depleted Peridotite Fluxed by CO2-H2O-Bearing Siliceous Melts and the Origin of Mid-Lithospheric Discontinuity Abstract: We present phase equilibria experiments on a depleted peridotite (Mg# 92) fluxed with variable proportions of a slab-derived rhyolitic melt (with 9.4 wt.% H2O, 5 wt.% CO2), envisaging an interaction that could occur during formation of […]
