Melt extraction and crustal thickness variations at segmented mid-ocean ridges
Mid-ocean ridges are underwater volcanic mountains extending more than 55,000 km in ocean basins worldwide, accounting for nearly 80% of the Earth’s volcanism. They are the birthplace of new seafloor, resurfacing two thirds ...
CONSTRAINTS ON THE LITHOSPHERIC STRUCTURE OF MID OCEAN RIDGES FROM OCEANIC CORE COMPLEX MORPHOLOGY
The Mid-oceanic ridge system is a feature unique to Earth. It is one of the fundamental components of plate tectonics and reflects interior processes of mantle convection within the Earth. The thermal structure beneath the ...
