Start date March 6, 2016 End date May 31, 2017
Short description

Subduction zones are the prime regions where water is exchanged between the solid Earth, oceans and atmosphere. Yet, water transport through subduction is only partially understood. In this project, we target the Lesser Antilles Arc, one of only two zones that subducts lithosphere formed at the slowly spreading Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Atlantic lithosphere is more hydrated, especially in the mantle part, than lithosphere consumed at Pacific and Indian Ocean trenches, making it a key endmember to advance understanding.
