Mineraly of oceanic crust from the Kane Transform, Mid-Atlantic Ridge, supplement to: Meurer, William P; Gee, Jeff S (2002): Evidence for the protracted construction of slow-spread oceanic crust by small magmatic injections. Earth and Planetary Science Letters, 201(1), 45-55

William P Meurer & Jeff S Gee
Gabbroic cumulates drilled south of the Kane Transform Fault on the slow-spread Mid-Atlantic Ridge preserve up to three discrete magnetization components. Here we use absolute age constraints derived from the paleomagnetic data to develop a model for the magmatic construction of this section of the lower oceanic crust. By comparing the paleomagnetic data with mineral compositions, and based on thermal models of local reheating, we infer that magmas that began crystallizing in the upper mantle...
