[SMP40-P02] Trace element partitioning during partial melting in main zone of the Hidaka metamorphic belt
Keywords:Hidaka metamorphic belt, Japan, trace element, partitioning, LA-ICP-MS
Opx amphibolite consist of orthopyroxene (En0.58-0.62), brown-hornblende, plagioclase, quartz and ilmenite. Plagioclase rim show high-anorthite (An) content (An70-85) against low-An core (An45-69). Opx leucosome contain euhedral orthopyroxene (En0.54-0.64) which be thought as new product by following incongruent melting; Hbl+Qz→Opx+melt (Osanai et al., 2006). Opx leucosome lacks K-feldsper, and consist of orthopyroxene, plagioclase (An28-43), quartz, ilmenite and apatite.
We analyzed bulk and mineral composition including trace elements (Rb, Sr, Y, REEs and Hf). Kawanami et al. (2006) report bulk chemical composition of low-grade amphibolite which show N-MORB characteristics. REE pattern of Opx amphibolite show same or higher REE than N-MORB, and have a negative Eu anomaly. Opx leucosome show 52.8-64.4 [wt. %] of SiO2, and LREE-rich and HREE-deplete REE pattern having negative to positive Eu anomaly. REE pattern difference remarkably depend on modal amount of apatite.
We estimated melt compositions using simple calculation that remove orthopyroxene composition from bulk chemical composition, and calculate trace element ratio between orthopyroxene and melt. REE ratio between orthopyroxene and melt, become less than 1, and show LREE-deplete and HREE-enrich (0.6-6.1) pattern. This pattern almost same as previous partition coefficient (e. g. Green et al., 2000). And, we also find characteristics that minerals/plagioclase REE ratio in Opx leucosome become almost same between each samples collected from different place in main zone of the Hidaka metamorphic belt. In this presentation, we discuss more detail about melt composition, equilibrium and meanings of mineral/melt and mineral/mineral trace element ratio.
