Collaborative Research: Testing Source vs. Crustal Processing in High-Mg# Arc Magmas by Os-O-He-Olivine Systematics
- Lead PI: Dr. Susanne M. Straub
Unit Affiliation: Geochemistry, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (LDEO)
- August 2019 - July 2022
- Central America ; North America ; Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory (LDEO) ; Nacional Autónoma de México Centro de Geociencias (UNAM-CGEO) ; Kilbride, Scotland ; Eugene, OR
- Project Type: Research
DESCRIPTION: The project will focus on olivine minerals that crystallizes first when magmas cools and start to solidify. Thus, the olivine contain information about the earliest processes that affect melt evolution, which we will investigate through a combination of helium, oxygen and osmium isotopes.
