The Thermal evolution of subduction zone lithosphere : evidence from the chemical development of Mt Ruapehu and surrounding vents, New Zealand

Abstract

Mt. Ruapehu is an andesite volcano located at the southwest termination of the Taupo Volcanic Zone (TVZ) in the North Island of New Zealand where the Pacific Plate subducts beneath the Australian Plate. Volcanism has migrated south with time as rifting from the Kermadec arc has propagated into the North Island lithosphere making Ruapehu the most recent addition to the TV
