Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Mantle Melting and Volcanism

Session ID#: 23792

Session Description:
Melting within the Earth, across a range of depths, has fundamental consequences for planetary dynamics and evolution. Yet, questions regarding source composition, melt migration and distribution, in situ melt fraction, and magma storage and evolution remain unanswered. We invite contributions from studies of asthenosphere/lithosphere melting in various tectonic environments (e.g., mid-ocean ridges, subduction zones, hotspots), as well as deep planetary melting (e.g., transition zone, magma ocean). Topics covered by this session include: (1) magmatic processes in the presence of volatiles and heterogeneous rock assemblages, (2) melt migration and melt-rock interaction, (3) melting and solidification at the core-mantle boundary, (4) imaging melt within the Earth through seismic or magnetotelluric approaches, (5) plume vs. non-plume origin of intraplate volcanism, and (6) magmatic processes and the evolution of magmas in the early Earth. We solicit research that combines the strengths of geochemistry, petrology, geology, geodynamics, geophysics, and mineral physics.
