[SCG64-18] Distributions of mantle heterogeneity across segment at southern segment of Central Indian Ridge

Recent petrological and geochemical investigations of MORB at the southern segments of Central Indian Ridge (CIR) reveal the heterogeneous distributions of MORB-source mantle (Sato et al., 2015). Sato et al. (2015) concluded that MORB from CIR-S2 segment and off-ridge area at the CIR-S1 segment are depleted compositions than typical MORB. Furthermore, depletions based on trace element geochemistry of off-ridge MORB from CIR-S1 segment decrease toward present spreading ridge. Because off-ridge MORB was recovered from several dredge sites parallel to the flow line, these distributions might indicate spatial distributions of mantle heterogeneity beneath CIR-S1 segment.
