    Magma mixing--two different magmas come into contact and mix, producing magma has composition intermediate between the two magmas. Mafic magma -- hotter than melting temperature of felsic rocks so mafic can melt felsic wall rocks wall rocks around a magma melt- . Our analysis of the compositions and liquidus temperatures of parental magmas at a hotspot (Hawaii) and at mid-ocean ridge settings finds that picritic magmas with >13% MgO are characteristic of.

    The composition of primitive magmas (molar Mg#>) varies systematically along the strike of the arc. section formed at a fast spreading mid-ocean ridge between ˜ Ma. Shallow crustal melt lenses have been seismically imaged along many portions of the global MOR system. In general, melt lens depths at fast-spreading ridges (>10 mm per year) are typically 1–2 km, at intermediate-spreading ridges (5–10 mm per year) depths are 2–3 km, and at slow-spreading rates .

    Introduction. First I summarize the reasons why a radical departure from the current MOR model is now essential. I then outline the new model and its apparent versatility, not only in providing the observed contrasting spreading-rate-dependent characteristics but also some of the other common features of the MOR system which warrant clearer explanation. 1. Introduction. The focusing of melt beneath mid‐ocean ridges (MORs) from a broad (potentially several hundred kilometers wide) partially molten zone at depth [The MELT Seismic Team, ] into a narrow (1–2 km wide) neovolcanic zone at the axis [e.g., Macdonald, ; Sinton and Detrick, ] remains a challenging observation for geodynamics to explain.

During the span of the Ridge Program, a new generation of models was developed to calculate the width of the melt region and the extent of melting beneath mid-ocean ridges, track the pathways. Mid-ocean ridges provide a unique opportunity to study mush processes: geophysical data indicate that, even at the most magmatically robust fast-spreading ridges, the magma plumbing system.

At Mid-Ocean ridges: solid mantle pulled up by spreading and rises to fill "void," crosses the solidus, and begins melting; melts because pressure is decreasing (no temperature increase) - buoyant At Hot Spots: mantle rising from hot spot is hotter than at mid-ocean ridges, so it is melting for a longer period of time because it has been.

magmas form at places in the lower crust and mantle where temperatures are high enough for at least partial melting of rock. Because the minerals within a rock melt at different temperatures, the composition of magmas varies with melting temperature.

Pressure raises the melting temperature of rock, and water lowers it. The magmas formed beneath spreading ridges are always felsic. false. Magma composition may change by crystal settling. true. Partial melting explains the origin and composition of magmas at spreading ridges but not subduction zones.

false. temperature and depth. The oceanic crust is formed from solidification of magmas produced during decompression melting of upwelling mantle beneath mid‐ocean ridges (MORs).

The release of latent heat during cooling and crystallization drives hydrothermal circulation at the seafloor and influences geothermal gradients in the oceanic lithosphere [e.g., Maclennan, ].

For a lherzolite mantle with about wt.-percent CO 2 or less, and a CO 2 /H 2 O mole ratio greater than about one, the mantle solidus curve in P-T space will have two important low-temperature regions, one centered at about 9 kbar (30 km depth) and another beginning at about 28 kbar (90 km depth).

It is argued that the depth of generation of primary tholeiitic magmas beneath. Temperatures and compositions of magmas ascending beneath actively spreading mid-ocean ridgesCited by: 3. Pressure-Release Melting at Mid-Ocean Ridges. Upwelling mantle melts beneath mid-ocean ridges. The melt ascends and freezes to form the basaltic oceanic crust.

Both the basaltic crust and the depleted residual mantle are less dense than the melt source region from which they differentiated. The composition of olivine phenocrysts in Hawaiian picrites and in Mid-Ocean Ridge picrites vary up to Mg# and Mg # respectively.

The compositions and liquidus temperatures of the magmas crystallizing the most magnesian phenocrysts can be estimated and anhydrous liquids temperatures (at 1 bar pressure) of Hawaiian tholeiitic. Mid-ocean ridges are considered the planet's largest magmatic system. At divergent plate boundaries, magma is generated by decompression melting of upwelling mantle.

Melts are focused as they ascend through the upper mantle and lower crust and collect beneath the ridge axis in elongate melt lenses. Plate spreading is accommodated by episodic faulting and magma injection into dikes.

The lowest extents of melting occur at shallowest depths in the mantle and are associated with the deepest ocean ridges.

Calculated mean primary magmas show a range in composition. For mid-ocean ridge of primary magmas beneath spreading ridges over a P range of approx kbar, with the majority being generated at a low-T region on the solidus at approx kbar.

Constraints on source region composition of HM magmas. The amount of melt present beneath the axis of a mid-ocean ridge depends on whether it is a fast spreading ridge (~15 cm yr −1; Slow spreading mid-ocean ridges possess an uneven topography because of numerous faults, and the ridges themselves can be up to 20 km wide with a.source rocks.

It appears that magmas ascending beneath a slowly spreading ridge are signigicantly hotter and therefore, form signifi-cantly deeper than those beneath a fast spreading ridge. The inferred difference in average temperatures of plagioclase formation between the two areas roughly corresponds to a difference of 1 1/ kms in.
