THE GEOCHEMICAL BEHAVIOR OF SCANDIUM DURING FRACTIONAL CRYSTALLIZATION AND IMPLICATIONS FOR ORE FORMATION
Demand for scandium is increasing due to the use of scandium-aluminum alloys in the aerospace and sporting goods industries, and in solid-oxide fuel cells. Scandium deposits are associated with mafic intrusions and laterites, ...
Petrologic and geochronologic constraints on the thermal and structural evolution of paleo-subduction interfaces
In subduction zones, the interface between the downgoing slab and overriding plate controls a number of important dynamic processes. Both the rheologic behavior and thermal structure of the interface influence fluid release ...
CHARACTERIZING THE DURATION, PERIODICITY AND CHEMICAL IMPACT OF FLUID TRANSPORT IN THE SUBDUCTING SLAB: INSIGHTS FROM ISOTOPE GEOCHEMISTRY OF HIGH-PRESSURE METAMORPHOSED OCEANIC CRUST
Subduction zones are key loci of geochemical cycling and natural hazards on Earth including large earthquakes and explosive volcanic eruptions. Fluids produced during subduction are thought to play a role in all these ...
