2020: Diamond forms during low pressure serpentinisation of oceanic lithosphere

Diamond forms during low pressure serpentinisation of oceanic lithosphere Abstract Diamond is commonly regarded as an indicator of ultra-high pressure conditions in Earth System Science. This canonical view is challenged by recent data and interpretations that suggest metastable growth of diamond in low pressure environments. One such environment is serpentinisation of oceanic lithosphere, which produces…

2020: Cryptic alkaline magmatism in the oceanic Caribbean arc (Camagüey area, Cuba)

Cryptic alkaline magmatism in the oceanic Caribbean arc (Camagüey area, Cuba) Abstract Mid and Late Cretaceous arc-related basaltic rocks in the Camagüey area, East Central Cuba, record an intriguing seemingly random enrichment in alkalis that suggests alkaline affinity, representing an oddity in the Greater Antilles. In this study, the petrology and geochemistry of volcanic rocks…
