Title

Seismic evidence of effects of water on melt transport in the Lau back-arc mantle

Subject

Description

Tomographically derived seismic velocities are used to infer the distribution of partial melt below the Lau Basin, revealing an unexpected relationship between the amount of in situ melt and the water content of the magma, indicating that subducted water enhances melt extraction.
