Tracking Magmatic And Metasomatic Processes In The East Asian Mantle Wedge

The Asian continental collage was formed by the assembly of several continental fragments through multiple subduction-accretion-collision processes. These prolonged tectonic cycles left their imprints on the East Asian mantle domain. The paper by Wang et al. (2019) attempts to investigate the magmatic and metasomatic processes in the mantle wedge beneath South Korea, a central region which was significantly affected by multiple subduction processes, including the ongoing subduction of the Pacific ocean lithosphere from the east. They used the isotopic composition...
