This volume features contributions by distinguished researchers that report the generation, migration, and geological consequences of such melts. Topics include melt geometry and mantle metasomatism, melt migration and mantle heterogeneity beneath oceanic islands, intershield geochemical differences among Hawaiian volcanoes, and continental magmatic underplating, to name but a few. Researchers and students in geology and geophysics will find this book of substantial interest.
