The influence of ridge geometry at the ultraslow-spreading Southwest Indian Ridge (9⁰-25⁰E) : basalt composition sensitivity to variations in source and process
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
Between 90-25° E on the ultraslow-spreading Southwest Indian Ridge lie two sharply contrasting supersegments. One 630 km long supersegment erupts N-MORB that is progressively enriched in incompatible element concentrations ...
Geochemical characerization of endmember mantle components
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
This thesis uses trace elements and radiogenic isotope tracers to define elemental abundances in reservoirs of the Earth's mantle, including EM2 (the Enriched Mantle 2), as seen in the Samoan hotspot track, and DMM (the ...
