[SCG63-02] Petrogenesis of Low-Si Boninites Drilled from IBM Fore-arc by IODP Expedition352: implications from LA-ICP-MS study
Keywords:boninite, forearc basalt, Izu-Bonin-Mariana
Many low-Si boninites with high Cr content (500-1500 ppm) contain reversely-zoned olivine and clinopyroxene phenocrysts: Fo# [=Mg/(Mg+Fe2+)mol] of olivine varies from ~87 at core to >90 at rim, and Mg# [=Mg/(Mg+Fe2+)mol] of clinopyroxene varies from < 83 at core to >89 at rim. Measured 207Pb/206Pb (0.823–0.842) and 208Pb/206Pb (2.02–2.06) of boninites’ groundmass from Expedition 352 are similar to the reported 207Pb/206Pb (0.814–0.839) and 208Pb/206Pb (2.021–2.063) of boninites from Izu-Bonin and Mariana (IBM) fore-arcs. Low-Si boninites with intermediate Cr content (500-800 ppm) show higher 207Pb/206Pb (0.828–0.842) and 208Pb/206Pb (2.035–2.063) than those with the highest Cr content (~1400 ppm) (207Pb/206Pb ~ 0.827–0.831 and 208Pb/206Pb ~ 2.042) but lower than the reported 207Pb/206Pb (0.830–0.856) and 208Pb/206Pb (2.055–2.097) of FABs from IBM.
Low-Si boninites with high Cr content show positive correlation between Zr/Ti and Cr content, which is hard to reproduce simply by differences in the degree of melting, fractional crystallization or crystal accumulation. One plausible mechanism to reproduce the geochemical variations observed for low-Si boninites with high Cr content is mixing between low-Si boninite with the highest Cr content and FAB. The intermediate 207Pb/206Pb and 208Pb/206Pb of low-Si boninites with intermediate Cr content as well as the presence of reversely-zoned clinopyroxene phenocrysts support mixing model, which can also reproduce variations in published whole-rock trace elements and isotope compositions of boninites and FABs.
