Fate of recycled material in the mantle during decompression melting.

Semester: Spring 2024

Presentation description

This research project will reproduce pressure and temperature conditions found at mid-ocean ridges, tectonic plate regions that diverge and generate decompression melting, which play a critical role in the formation of magma in the Earth's mantle. I aim to recreate the decompression melting of a heterogeneous mantle to determine the conditions for the melts derived from recycled material to reach the surface without being in full re-equilibration with the surrounding mantle.
