Gill Thumbnail IEDA Data Rescue Mini-Award: Fiji, Izu, and Endeavour

Sample metadata and geochemical analyses from over 40 years of research in the Fiji Arc, Izu Arc, and the Endeavour segment of the Juan de Fuca Ridge have been compiled by James B. Gill, at the University of California, Santa Cruz. These data have been critical in studies of intra-oceanic arcs and spreading centers.

The global mid-ocean ridge is segmented in its seafloor morphology and magmatic systems, but the origin of and relationships between this tectonic and magmatic segmentation are poorly understood. At fast-spreading ridges, tectonic segmentation is observed on a fine scale but it is unclear whether this partitioning also occurs in the magmatic system. Fine-scale tectonic segmentation could have… Read More
