By R. S. Thorpe (auth.), R. S. Harmon, B. A. Barreiro (eds.)

Destructive plate margin magmagenesis is among the so much intensely studied and commonly debated themes within the earth sciences at the moment. Calc-alkaline volcanic and plutonic rocks in orogenic settings convey one of these variety of composition and personality that the subducted oceanic lithosphere, the overlying 'enriched' lithospheric mantle and the decrease continental crust all were recommended lately because the basic resource sector for island-arc and continental-margin basaltic to andesitic magmas. The position of the higher continental crust is additionally an issue of continuous controversy. it really is transparent that crustal illness is a standard, yet now not common, function of damaging plate margin magmatism. no matter if this infection is brought at resource through subduction-related approaches or happens in the course of magma transit via bulk anatexis and magma blending, selective infection or coupled fractional crystallization-assimilation mechanisms is critical to most present discussions of andesite petrogenesis. This booklet offers a chain of papers which without delay deal with those and different vital geological and geochemical difficulties in the context of the Mesozoic-Cenozoic calc-alkaline magmatism attribute of the Andean Cordillera of western South the USA. even though it is aimed basically at postgraduate scholars and researchers acquainted with the Andes, it's also an invaluable normal reference for employees in different fields who desire to achieve an perception into present concepts, rules and speculations on 'andesitic' magmatism at damaging plate margins.

Example text

Most rocks from this province are quartz-normative; olivine-normative rocks are rare. Province II rocks also fall in the subalkaline field on a Na20 + K20 versus Si02 diagram (Figure 1). However, in the AFM diagram (Figure 3) they exhibit a more tholeiitic character. On this basis, some authors have classified the basaltic rocks from this province as tholeiites, but on the basis of their high Al20 3(>17wt. %), high CaO (>8 wt. 5wt. , 1980). Actually, these major element features make these basalts very distinct from the ocean floor tholeiites.

73 (Halpern, 1973). , 1980). R. Stem et 01. is important in the generation of andesites and dacites in both the AVZ and the CVZ, the different ages and isotopic composition of the basement rocks in these two regions has resulted in distinctly different Sr, Nd and Ph isotope compositions of magmas which in other respects are very similar. High-Mg andesite, such as reaches the surface on Cook Island, is considered to be the appropriate parental composition for the other andesites and dacites in the AVZ, both because of the absence of basalts in this region and because of geochemical considerations.

Andesites and dacites from Mt. Burney, the next volcanic centre to the north, and from Aguilera, Nunatak and Lautaro, the three most northerly volcanoes in the AVZ, have progressively higher SiO z, K, Rb, Ba, 87S r/86S r and /) 180, and lower MgO, CaO, Sr, Ni, Cr, K/Rb and 14lNdf144Nd. These rocks are interpreted to have formed by increasing degrees of near-surface fractional crystallization, combined with small amounts of crustal contamination of a parental composition similar to the high-MgO andesites from Cook Island, the most primitive magma type identified in the AVZ.
