Summary
Abstract: Macquarie Island offers a rare land-based cross-section through the deep ocean floor, which covers 60% of our Earth. It formed 11 million years ago as slow spreading crust, which has had minimal study compared to more common fastspreading crust. Does the difference in spreading speed produce different crustal geometry, composition, hydrothermal fluids, and cycling of sulfur between ocean and ... View entire text
