Melting and channelized magmatic flow in chemically heterogeneous, upwelling mantle

Abstract:

Beneath mid-ocean ridges, magma is thought to rise through a network of high porosity channels that form by reactive flow. Partial mantle melts travel rapidly through these channels to the surface, and retain the geochemical signature of their source rock. Global analyses of mid-ocean ridge lavas indicates that the mantle is chemically heterogeneous, but the consequences of this heterogeneity for reactive porous flow remain unclear. Using numerical models of coupled magma/mantle dynamics, we ...
