CHAPTER 2 NEW GROUND: IGNEOUS ROCKS Degassing of volatiles is significant in controlling the nature of volcanic eruptions (Rothery, 2003). The amount of volatiles within a magma is very much related to the magma source. At divergent plate boundaries and hot spots, the basaltic magmas essentially contain only primordial gas trapped since the Earth’s formation. 2%. In subduction zones, however, the water content can range between 1 and 6% because of the water contained within the subducted sediments.
Pressure-release melting flux melting increase in temperature (associated with hot spots) magma migration and magma rise. Pressure-release melting Along divergent plate boundaries the two plates pull away from each other. As the gap widens, a graben or rift valley will form. Directly below the graben there is less weight on the rocks in the mantle, and thus less pressure. Although the temperature remains the same, the reduced pressure is enough to trigger partial melting of the rocks in the mantle.
These solid state changes that rocks 1 One explanation for the cyclical appearance of bands of sedimentary rocks, for example that can be seen exposed at sea cliffs (Fig. 17), is that these are brought about by climate changes caused by ‘Milankovitch cycles’. These are the collective effect of changes in the Earth’s movements upon its climate, named after Serbian civil engineer and mathematician Milutin Milankovic´ (1879–1958). The eccentricity, axial tilt, and precession of the Earth’s orbit vary in several patterns, resulting in 100 000year ice age cycles of the Quaternary glaciation over the past few million years.
