    Magma is the molten or semi-molten natural material from which all igneous rocks are formed. Magma is found beneath the surface of the Earth, and evidence of magmatism has also been discovered on other terrestrial planets and some natural satellites. Besides molten rock, magma may also contain suspended crystals and gas bubbles. Magma is produced by melting of the mantle or the crust at .   McBirney AR, Murase T () Rheological properties of magmas.

    TECTONICS OF BASALTIC VOLCANISM ON EARTH IN THE LATTER HALF OF EARTH HISTORY: Tectonics of basaltic eruption at plate margins in the past: Tectonics of non-plate-margin basalt in the past: TECTONICS OF BASALTIC VOLCANISM ON EARTH IN THE FIRST HALF OF EARTH HISTORY: Tectonics of Archean basaltic volcanism: Basaltic magmas, generated in the mantle, by flux melting, decompression melting or frictional heat, rise into the crust, carrying heat with them. Because basaltic liquids have a higher density than crust, they may not make it all the way to the surface, but instead intrude and cool slowly at depth.

    Magmatism and Geodynamics presents a comprehensive review of the origin of magmas and their relation to geodynamic processes through the Earth's history by O.A. Bogatikov and three of his. Different compositions represent different magmas. Different magma types are common to specific tectonic areas. Factors affecting magma generation. Heating - solid/liquid phase change. Depth of burial - an obvious source of heat. Friction - common in a subduction zone. Addition of water "Wet" rock melts at a lower temperature than "dry" rock.

Basaltic magmatism is a common feature of dynamically active terrestrial planets. The compositions of basalts reflect the temperatures and pressures of magma generation, providing windows into a planet's thermal state.

Here, we present new thermobarometers based on magma Si and Mg contents to estimate the pressures and temperatures of basaltic magma generation on Earth and other terrestrial Cited by: Compositional Variation of Arc Magmas.

Water is a key ingredient in the generation of magmas in subduction zones, and it also influences chemical differentiation that occurs when magmas cool and crystallize in the crust. The source of H 2O for arc magma generation is hydrous minerals that are carried into the mantle by the subducting slab.

Very large variations in heat flux occur locally within the Pleistocene volcanic area, the result of advective cooling of intrusive magmas. The measured heat generation of crustal samples along the entire profile is low, – μW m − by: The upwelling of magmas and related fluids into the crust can result in the generation of crustally derived magmas.

The mantle- and lower crustal-derived magmas are themselves buoyant in the crust, and transport matter to the mid- and upper crust. The water contents in arc basalt magmas are estimated to be about 3,and nearly O wt % for the AOB, HAB, and OTB, respectively, on the basis of the solubility limit of water in silicate melts.

Based on these estimates and the experimental results, the AOB, HAB, and OTB magmas are suggested to segregate from the mantle at about °C and Cited by: Basaltic magmatism is a common feature of dynamically active terrestrial planets.

Because the compositions of basalts reflect temperatures and pressures of magma generation, these basalts are. Basic magmas generated by the subduction of the Aegean arc, which subsequently rose to higher levels provided the heat for the melting of the continental crust. After their generation these primary crustal melts rose to a shallow magma chamber, where they underwent intense fractional crystallisation mainly of alkali-feldspar and plagioclase before their eruption.

The magmas that erupt from volcanoes on Earth originate primarily through partial melting processes initiated in the Earth's mantle. This chapter will discuss the structure and physical properties of the Earth's upper mantle that influence magma generation, physical mechanisms leading to melting, and the chemical compositions of mantle melts.

First, the formation of magmas requires partial melting of the crust or mantle, and second, melting occurs in response to some dynamic process that is able to focus heat into a small, high-temperature volume of rock.

The results of seismic measurements along the deep seismic sounding profile VII and terrestrial heat flow measurements used for construction of heat generation models for the crust in the Paleozoic Platform region, the Sudetic Mountains (Variscan Internides) and the European Precambrian Platform show considerable differences in mantle heat flow and by: The heat flow-heat generation relationship has been studied for 42 sites.
