Chemical exchange between oceanic lithosphere and seawater is important in setting the chemical composition of the oceans. In the past, budgets for chemical flux in the flanks of mid-ocean ridges have only considered exchange between basalt and seawater. Recent studies have shown that lower crustal and upper mantle lithologies make up a significant fraction of sea floor produced at the global mid-ocean ridge system. Moreover, the rugged topography of slow spread crust exposing lower crust...
