[SGC52-P07] Volatiles in olivine-hosted melt inclusions in HIMU basalts from Raivavae, South Pacific
Keywords:Volatile, Ocean island basalts, Melt inclusion
The basalts from Raivavae are classified into two groups in terms of Pb isotopes. Most MI in less radiogenic-Pb basalts have similar Pb isotopic compositions to host basalts. MI in radiogenic-Pb basalts generally exhibit radiogenic (HIMU) character, but they show larger isotopic variation than the host basalts. It is notable that small number of MI have different Pb isotope ratios from host basalts, suggesting mingling of radiogenic melts and less radiogenic melts during olivine crystallization. Despite some exceptions, MI with radiogenic Pb isotopes are characterized by lower SiO2 and higher CaO, La/Yb, and Nd/Hf than MI with less radiogenic Pb. These facts suggest that the radiogenic-Pb (HIMU) melts were formed by low-degree partial melting of carbonated source. MI with radiogenic Pb clearly show elevated Cl/Nb and F/Nd relative to MI with less radiogenic Pb. Enrichment of Cl and F in radiogenic-Pb melts implies that these elements have been transported into the mantle via subduction of hydrothermally altered oceanic crusts. The correlation of H2O/Ce and CO2/Nb with Pb isotopes is somewhat blurred, probably owing to degassing and diffusive loss of CO2 and H2O. However, MI with the most radiogenic Pb have the lowest H2O/Ce and the highest CO2/Nb, which may also reflect the feature of the basalt source.
