Abstract

This thesis explores hydration and dehydration reactions of oceanic lithosphere at subduction zones. On a regional, subduction zone scale the intensity and timing of slab fluid is studied using a chemo-thermo-mechanical model. By coupling this model to a parameterized mantle convection model the global implications of plate subduction on the geochemical water cycle of the Earth's mantle are explored.
