Decompression partial melting

This video summarizes the decompression partial melting process beneath oceanic-oceanic divergent boundaries.

Magma evolution rise from mantle

This video summarizes how rising magma from the mantle interacts with the lithosphere, thus creating a range in magmatic compositions.

The Earth's crust is rising faster in central Iceland each year, due to the accelerated retreat of melting glaciers from global warming, says a new study led by University of Arizona researchers. The study's significance is that for the first time ...

“If Basin and Range extension were to occur here, it could result in an eruption, because when the crust is stretched and pressure are released, decompression melting can occur.” Craters of the Moon encompasses more than 1,100 square miles, roughly the ...

In one scenario, the melt occurs and is retained beneath the crust as a result of the mantle upwelling and decompression melting that forms the newly emerging plate material. Another theory proposes that the melt is generated in small amounts ...

Magma can then be generated by decompression melting as the asthenosphere ascends to fill in the space of the detached lithosphere. Although there is supporting evidence for lithospheric detachment form geophysical data, the process remains unproven.

... asthenosphere is "hot and somewhat buoyant, and if there's a topographic gradient along the asthenosphere's upper surface, as there is under the Colorado Plateau, the asthenosphere will flow with it and undergo a small amount of decompression ...

England and Katz models suggest that in the mantle wedge, there is a very restricted zone where this type of melting - decompression melting like we find at the midocean ridges - is allowed and it is this zone that dictates the location of the arc (see ...

“At the end of the last ice age, the rate of eruption in Iceland was some 30 times higher than historic rates. “This is because the reduction in the ice load reduced the pressure in the mantle, leading to decompression melting there. “Since the late ...
