Robert A Duncan
Concordant plateau and isochron ages are obtained from 40Ar-39Ar incremental heating experiments on volcanic rocks recovered by drilling at three Leg 121 sites along the Ninetyeast Ridge and two dredge locations on the southern scarp of the Broken Ridge, eastern Indian Ocean. The new data confirm a northerly increase in the age of volcanism along the Ninetyeast Ridge, from 38 to 82 Ma; this lineament links current hotspot volcanism near the Kerguelen islands with the...
