Volume 11, Number 2 (April) • ARC MAGMATIC TEMPOS
The differentiation of our planet and formation of the continental crust and its underlying mantle lithosphere is in large part the result of magmatic processes at convergent margins. Therefore, it is imperative that we understand the underlying controls on the tempo of magmatic and tectonic activity in arcs and the cyclical nature of magmatism. These processes influence socially important processes such as long-term climate change, volcanic and fault hazards, and ore deposition. This issue will provide an overview of some recently developed models for cyclic behavior in subduction magmatism, from global to single magmatic systems, and explore the cause of high-flux events in subduction-related magmas.
