Lithospheric deformation on Earth is localized under both brittle and ductile deformation conditions. As high-temperature ductile rheologies are fundamentally strain-rate hardening, the formation of localized ductile shear zones must involve a structural or ...

TECTONICALLY CONTROLLED, TIME-PREDICTABLE BASALTIC VOLCANISM FROM ALITHOSPHERIC MANTLE SOURCE (CENTRAL BASIN AND RANGE PROVINCE, USA) (2007)
This paper summarizes physical volcanological, geochemical, and time-volume characteristics of the Plio-Pleistocene part of the Southwestern Nevada Volcanic Field (SNVF) as an example of an extremely low volume-flux end member of basaltic fields.

MANTLE PROCESSES DURING OCEAN FORMATION: PETROLOGIC RECORDS IN PERIDOTITES FROM THE ALPINE APENNINE OPHIOLITES (2003)
Mantle peridotites were early exposed at the sea-ﬂoor of the Jurassic Tethys derived from the subcontinental mantle of the Europe-Adria system. During continental rifting and oceanic spreading, these lithospheric peridotites were percolated via diffuse reactive ...
