Article – Variable water input controls evolution of the Lesser Antilles volcanic arc

IDL researcher David Schlaphorst co-authored the paper "Variable water input controls evolution of the Lesser Antilles volcanic arc" published in Nature Journal. Abstract: Oceanic lithosphere carries volatiles, notably water, into the mantle through subduction at convergent plate boundaries. This subducted water exercises control on the production of magma, earthquakes, formation of continental crust and mineral [...]
