Abstract

The main objective of this Dissertation is the investigation of the distribution of Galápagos plume material in the equatorial East Pacific. It provides a more detailed view on the Galápagos plume and the adjacent Galápagos Spreading Center (GSC; also known as Cocos-Nazca-Spreading Center (CNS)) and contributes to further our understanding of plume-ridge interaction and mantle material transport within the earth upper mantle. Of special interest in this context is the far-field lateral transport of plume material (subproject 1) and the temporal evolution of plume-ridge interaction at the Galápagos plume-Galápagos Spreading Center system (sub-project 2). The necessary sample material in order to address these questions was recovered during the cruise SO208 with the German research vessel R/V Sonne in July/August 2010.
