14 Tholeiitic vs. Calc-alkaline differentiation seems to depend on K C-A shows continually increasing SiO2 and lacks dramatic Fe enrichmentHigh K
15 Calc-alkaline differentiation WHY? Early (as opposed to late in Tholeiites) crystallization of an Fe-Ti oxide phase.Probably related to the high water content of calc-alkaline magmas in arcsIron is removed early so a middle fractionation high iron composition cannot occur as it does in Tholeiites
16 Other Trends Spatial Temporal Antilles more alkaline N S Aleutians segmented with C-A prevalent in center and tholeiite prevalent at endsIDEA: source/collection points for high K clays (Illite) near trench?TemporalEarly Tholeiitic later C-A and often latest alkaline is commonMany exceptions to any trend!
17 Trace Elements REEs HREE flat in all, so garnet, which sequesters the HREEs, not in equilibrium with the meltGarnet last to go in partial melting of Lherzolite. If melted, HREE would be high.also not from subducted basalt, which becomes eclogite with garnet at 110 km.Trace ElementsThe HREE are flat, implying that garnet, which strongly partitions (holds) the HREE, was not in equilibrium with the melt. Melts derived from eclogite are depleted in HREE (abundant garnet in residue). This causes the characteristic low HREEFigure 16-10

25 Not 1a the subducted basalt fide flat HREEs The trace element and isotopic data suggest that both 1b and 1c, the subducted sediments and water and 2, the mantle wedge contribute to arc magmatism. How, and to what extent?Dry peridotite solidus too high for melting of anhydrous mantle to occur anywhere in the thermal regime shownLIL/HFS ratios of arc magmas water plays a significant role in arc magmatismSince we know what the general composition of the constituents in Fig are, it is a matter of combining this information with the other information in the figure showing us the pressure-temperature conditions to which the constituents will be subjected as they move through the subduction zone, and considering the consequences
26 Freezing Point Depression always occurs in a mixture
27 An upside-down PT diagram Even small amounts of water (0.5%) and carbon dioxide (0.5%) strongly depress the temperatures of the solidus, moving it below the geotherm at all depths. This effect dominates in subduction environments, where arc magmas are generated. (Modified from B. M. Wilson (1989) Igneous petrogenesis: a global tectonic approach.

After Peacock (1991), Tatsumi and Eggins (1995). Winter (2001). An Introduction to Igneous and Metamorphic Petrology. Prentice Hall.Areas in which the dehydration curves are crossed by the P-T-t paths below the wet solidus for peridotite are blue and labeled D for dehydrationAreas in which the dehydration curves are crossed above the wet solidus are purple and labeled M for melting.Note that although the slab crust usually dehydrates, the wedge peridotite melts as amphibole dehydrates above the wet solidusA second melting may also occur as phlogopite dehydrates in the presence of two pyroxenes.
29 The data from LIL Large Ion Lithophiles and HFS High Field Strength trace elements underscore the importance of slab-derived water and a MORB-like mantle wedge sourceThe flat HREE pattern argues against a garnet-bearing (eclogite) sourceThus modern opinion has swung toward a non-melting subducted lithosphere slab model for most cases of IA genesisMcCulloch (1993) suggests that young, warm subducted crust is more likely to melt before it dehydrates. Thus slab melting may be more common where the a subduction zone is close to a ridge, or during the Archean, when heat production was greater
30 Island Arc Petrogenesis Model Mantle here is too shallow to have Garnet. Subducted slab turns to Eclogite with Garnet at 110 km.Phlogopite is stable in ultramafic rocks beyond the conditions at which amphibole breaks downP-T-t paths for the wedge reach the phlogopite-2-pyroxene dehydration reaction at about 200 km depthIf this occurs above the wet peridotite solidus, a second phase of melting will occur at B a position appropriate for the secondary volcanic chain that exists behind the primary chain in several island arcsThe P-T-t paths are nearly parallel to the solidus, and may be above it or below it. Thus dehydration may or may not be accompanied by melting, so that the development of a second arc will depend critically upon the thermal and flow regime of a particular arcMelting initiated by the breakdown of the potassium-rich mica will probably be more potassic, as is true in most secondary arc occurrences.The K-h relationship probably more complex, reflecting the decreasing quantity of H2O with depth and thus the degree of partial melting, as well as the depth of melting (which becomes more alkaline with depth), and perhaps the vertical length of the rising melt diapir column within the mantle wedgeFigure 16-11b.

47 Why are granitoids so abundant? Experiments show Tonalites(granitoids with low K-spar) can be formed by the partial fusion remelting of gabbroic magmas under hydrous conditions.Up-arched mantle results in partial melting and underplate gabbros.During later compression, heat added by more underplate magmas remelts the underplate gabbros to produce tonalites.Figure Schematic diagram illustrating (a) the formation of a gabbroic crustal underplate at an continental arc and (b) the remelting of the underplate to generate tonalitic plutons.
