Alkali basalt volcanism along a subduction-related magmatic arc: The case of Puyuhuapi Quaternary volcanic line, Southern Andes (44deg20minS)
Entry ID: 159-96_03

Abstract: In Southern Chile, plate configuration is characterized by ridge-ridge-trench
collision in correspondence of Taitao peninsula (Chile triple junction). The
different converging rates of Nazca and Antarctic plates favored the formation
of a forearc sliver (Chiloe block) limited to west by a dextral transcurrent
fault system, Known as Liquine-Ofqui fault system (LOFS). During the Quatenary
time, a ... View entire text

Quality A set of 16 samples from PVC was analyzed for major elements; 8 samples were
selected for trace elements analyses. Whole-rock major elements determination
were carried out by XRF using a Philips 1480 X-ray spectrometer. Na2O and MgO
contents were determined by AAS, and FeO by the titration method. Volatile
components were determined as ignition loss at 1000 deg C on 110 deg C-dried
powders, assuming a total oxidation of Fe2+ into Fe3+. Trace elements were
analyzed by a VG Elemental Plasma Quad 2 Plus Inductively Coupled Plasma
Spectrometer. Analyses of the mineral phases were carried out by a Jeol
JXA-8600 electron microprobe.
