Major compositions and mode of Kohistan lower crustal cumulates

Jingbo Zhang
Arc magmas, a major contributor to continental crust growth, are thought to be more oxidized than mid-ocean ridge basalts, but how arc magmas become oxidized is debated. In particular, fractionation of Fe-rich phases may change the Fe valence and thus the oxidation state of the derivative melt. Here we evaluate the redox effect of Fe-rich amphibole fractionation during arc magma differentiation. We present high precision Fe valence data determined by Mössbauer spectroscopy, and whole-rock Fe3+/∑Fe...
