Collaborative Research: Constraining the Petrogenesis and Mantle Source of Adare Basin Seamount Lavas
Entry ID: NSF-ANT05-38266

Abstract: This award supports the study of lava samples from seamounts in the Cape Adare region of the western Ross Sea. Volcanism in this area is poorly understood, and the geochemistry of these lavas may offer new insight into regional geodynamics and global mantle geochemistry. Because the Cape Adare seamounts are located on oceanic lithosphere, they may be free of the contamination that affects lavas ... View entire text
