Sulfur from the subducted slab dominates the sulfur budget of the mantle wedge under volcanic arcs

Abstract:

Sulfur is of a crucial importance in the Earth system influencing biological, climate, ore-forming, and redox processes. Subduction zones play a key role in the global sulfur cycle. Arc magmas have higher sulfur contents and are more oxidised than mid-ocean ridge basalts (MORBs) due to either an oxidised mantle source or magma differentiation. Melt oxidation state and sulfur content may interrelate, as sulfur is a potential oxidising agent during slab-mantle interaction. Here, we use melt inc...
