SHIPBOARD GEOPHYSICAL INDICATIONS OFASYMMETRY AND MELT PRODUCTION BENEATH THE EAST PACIFIC RISE NEAR THE MELT EXPERIMENT (1998)
This paper is about submarine volcanism. More specifically Near the Mantle Electromagnetic and Tomography (MELT) Experiment, seamounts form and off-axis lava flows occur in a zone that extends farther to the west of the East Pacific Rise than to the east, indicating a broad, asymmetric region of melt production. More seamounts, slower subsidence, and less dense mantle on the western flank suggest transport of hotter mantle toward the axis from the west.
