Magma generation is driven by lithospheric extension, which triggers shallow decompression melting ( o C) of dry upper mantle peridotite (≪ km). Similarly, lithospheric extension within continental regions produces somewhat different basaltic magmas and compositionally distinct silicic and potassic magmas because of the involvement of.

Basaltic magma s that form the oceanic crust of Earth are generated in the asthenosphere at a depth of about 70 kilometres. The mantle rocks located at depths from about 70 to kilometres are believed to exist at temperatures slightly above their melting point, and plate tectonics. In plate tectonics: Supercontinent cycle.

Melting the Mantle and the Generation of Basaltic Magma - Geology Geos with Mills at DePauw University - StudyBlue. Basaltic magmatism is a common feature of dynamically active terrestrial planets. The compositions of basalts reflect the temperatures and pressures of magma generation, providing windows into a planet's thermal state. Here, we present new thermobarometers based on magma Si and Mg contents to estimate the. The Generation of Granitic Magmas by Intrusion of Basalt into Continental Crust by HERBERT E. HUPPERT1 AND R.
