Arc Basalt Simulator (ABS) version 3

Jun-Ichi Kimura
Arc Basalt Simulator (ABS) is a petrologic and geochemical simulation program for basalt to high-Mg andesite genesis in and above a subduction zone. ABS consists of three different calculation modules: (a) slab dehydration and melting along an appropriate subduction zone P-T path, (b) reaction of mantle peridotite with slab-derived melt or hydrous fluid migrating through the mantle wedge, and (c) melting of mantle wedge peridotite due to fluxing by this liquid. ABS is intended to...
