Abstract:
We report the occurrence of ferrobasalts recovered from the Central Indian Ocean Basin crust generated at the Southeast Indian Ridge during a phase of moderate to fast spreading accretion (~110-190 mm/yr, full rate).The rocks are rich in plagioclase, FeO* (13/19 %), and TiO2 (2.27/2.76 %), poor in olivine and MgO (3.44/6.20%), and associated with topographic highs and increased amplitude magnetic anomalies corresponding to chrons A25 and A24. We suggest that secon dary eruptions from ancient N-MORB magma, which may have been trapped at a shallow depth in a horizon of neutral buoyancy, could have produced the ferrobasalts.
