Low degree melting under the Southwest Indian Ridge: the roles of mantle temperature, conductive cooling and wet melting

Both low mantle temperatures and conductive cooling have been suggested as the cause of the atypically thin oceanic crust and the incompatible element enrichment characteristic of very slow-spreading ridges. Here we present a model of melting under the Southwest Indian Ridge, which takes into accoun...
