Formation of Magma at Subduction Zone. This diagram shows the basic ideas regarding the formation of magma at a subduction zone. Note that there is a particular depth (D) at which the sediments are heated sufficiently so that they liberate their volatiles, and that this determines the distance from the trench to the volcano (V).
The origin of volcanic rocks and their primary magmas in subduction zones, including island arcs, is an important problem in igneous petrology.
Studies of volcanic rocks in the Japanese island arc began in the late 19th century and greatly advanced during the early-middle 20th century, based mainly on the petrological characters of volcanic rocks.

Keywords: subduction zone, magma, melting relation, mantle peridotite, degree of melting, H 2 O content. JOURNALS FREE ACCESS. Volume 83 Issue 1 Pages DOI https Cited by: Viscosity of Magmas Viscosity is the resistance to flow (opposite of fluidity).
Viscosity depends on primarily on the composition of the magma, and temperature. Higher SiO 2 (silica) content magmas have higher viscosity than lower SiO 2 content magmas (viscosity increases with increasing SiO 2 concentration in the magma). There are two general classes of models for magma generation in subduction zones; melting of the subducted slab, or magma derivation from the asthenosphere wedge overlying the subducted slab.

Shimozuru and I. Yokoyama eds.), Terra Scientific Publishing Company, Tokyo. Google Scholar. Primitive magmatic rocks with Mg# ≥60 have been identified in the literature from the Sona-Azuero, Golfito and Chagres-Bayano forearc segments of southern Costa Rica and Panama of the early (75–39 Ma) Central American Volcanic Arc system (CAVAS).
Primitive CAVAS basalts are remarkably similar in terms of major and many trace elements to primitive MORB and primitive basalts of the Mariana. If magmas are related to each other by some processes, that process would have to be one that causes magma composition to change.
Any process that causes magma composition to change is called magmatic the years, various process have been suggested to explain the variation of magma compositions observed within small regions. To help in the understanding of deposits of this type, in this book we first discuss the phase relations of simple sul- fide-oxide liquids and activity-composition relations within them.
We then discuss the solubility of sulfide in mafic and ultramafic melts, followed by the partitioning of elements between silicate magma and sulfide-oxide liquid. Studies of the origin of magmas in subduction zones, particularly in the Japanese island arc, have been significantly advanced by petrological, geochemical, geophysical and experimental studies.
Origin of Magma Addition of Water ~Occurs mainly at subduction zones ~As an oceanic plate sinks, heat and pressure drive water from the crust and overlying sediments ~Fluids migrate into the overlying wedge of mantle ~These melts are called primary or primitive magmas.
Magma Composition Andesitic and Granitic Magmas. Magma erupted at subduction-zone volcanoes contains mantle rocks and a mixture of fluids and sediments derived from the subducted slab. A synthesis of work over past years provides an integrated physico-chemical framework for subduction zones with mixing at the slab–mantle interface and transport towards the surface volcanoes by buoyant diapirs.
Dehydration and hydration reactions in both the downgoing lithosphere and the overlying mantle wedge have been examined in order to understand the role of H 2 O in the production of magmas at convergent plate boundaries.
The subduction of oceanic lithosphere, occurring with increasing pressures and rising temperatures, causes liberation of H2O from the slab.

Moderately evolved tholeiites with 7–9% MgO dominate the subaerial exposures of these volcanoes, and the compositions of these lavas provide important constraints on the nature.
Igneous rock - Igneous rock - Nature of magmas: Magmas are chemically complex fluid systems that differ in many ways from ordinary solutions, in which water is the solvent and the dominant constituent.
They can be thought of as mutual solutions, or melts, of rock-forming components that are variously present as simple ions, as complex ions and ionic groups, and as molecules. Mantle plume and spreading-ridge magmas tend to be consistently mafic, so effusive eruptions are the norm.
At subduction zones, the average magma composition is likely to be close to intermediate, but as we’ve seen, magma chambers can become zoned and so. Subduction zone, oceanic trench area marginal to a continent in which, according to the theory of plate tectonics, older and denser seafloor underthrusts the continental mass, dragging downward into the Earth’s upper mantle the accumulated trench sediments.
The subduction zone, accordingly, is the antithesis of the mid-oceanic seafloor is generated from the upper mantle at the mid. Origin of magmas in subduction zones: a review of experimental studies.

Studies of the origin of magmas in subduction zones, particularly in the Japanese island arc, have been significantly advanced by petrological, geochemical, geophysical and experimental studies during last 50 years. Kuno's original model(1)) for magma generation. The long Phanerozoic history of subduction along the proto-Pacific margin of Gondwanaland (e.g., Mukasa and Dalziel,Seton et al., ), including subduction of the Phoenix Plate in early Jurassic, offers a mechanism for geochemically modifying the mantle from which Ferrar magmas were derived (Cox,Elliot, ).

This review focuses on the role of water in the generation of magmas in the mantle wedge, the factors that allow melting to occur, and the plate tec-tonic variables controlling the location of arc volcanoes worldwide.
Water. Describe the way magmas are produced in the subduction zone. by addition of volatiles and heating as the subducting plate goes down.
What factors determine the nature of soils in different regions. Soil forming factors: climate, parent material, topography, time, and biotic activity. Compositional change in the magmas that ascend by the partial zone melting is dependent on the isobaric invariant point where olivine and orthopyroxene are involved and can be estimated on the basis of the present experiments.
Gravity Investigations of the Subduction Zone, The Geophysics of the Pacific Ocean Basin and Origin of magmas. 1. Introduction. Petrological estimates of sub-arc temperature conditions in both continental and oceanic subduction zones are systematically higher than predicted by thermal models, typically by – K, at depths less than ∼70 km (Kelemen et al.,Perrin et al., ).Similarly, measurements of geothermal heat flow in SW Oregon and NE Japan are higher than predicted by.

Magmatic Fe3+/SFe ratios increase toward subduction zones (at ridges, to ; at back arcs, to ; and at arcs, to ) and correlate linearly with H 2O content and element.
However, subduction zones can last for hundred of millions of years and changes in the location and dip of the subduction zone during that time result in arcs that are typically km wide. The width of the fore-arc region i.e.
between the arc and the trench, also changes with the clip of the subduction zone. Magma_6. How do magmas move. Answer 1) Shear zones might localize magmatic ascent.
2) Gas boiling out of magma (kimberlite magma) might provide the driving force in a process called gas coring or gas fluxion. Partial melting of rock yields liquid. The magma has a 15% increase in volume when compared to the rock from which it is generated.

Magmas from the mantle play an important role in the evolution of the Earth and its continents. Magma genesis, the formation of magma chambers in the crust and the processes that change the compositions of magmas en route to the surface, are important aspects of the Earth system.
Magmatic processes and the evolution of magmas throughout geological.Water is a key ingredient in the generation of magmas in subduction zones. This review focuses on the role of water in the generation of magmas in the mantle wedge, the factors that allow melting to occur, and the plate tectonic variables controlling the location of arc volcanoes worldwide.
Water also influences chemical differentiation that occurs when magmas cool and crystallize in Earth's.Volcanic arcs, which form above subduction zones, are the most visible manifestations of plate tectonics, the convection mechanism by which the Earth loses excess heat.
They are probably also the main location where new continental crust is formed, the so-called 'subduction factory'. About 40% of modern subduction zones on Earth are intra-oceanic.
