Summary:Lavas and pyroclastics on Ascension Island contain plutonic blocks that include fluid-inclusion-bearing peralkaline granite. The 18O/16O ratios, F and Cl were analysed on whole-rocks and/or minerals for lavas and granites. Whole-rock 18O/16O ratios of fresh alkali-basalt, hawaiite, trachyandesite, trachyte and comendite range 6.0-6.9%, with 18O tending to increase with increase in SiO2. The delta 18O values of the granites are 0.0-0.3per mille, depleted in 18O relative to the comendites. The O-isotopic trend of the lavas is consistent with a crystal fractionation model. Fresh igneous rocks with delta 18O values >7per mille involve processes in addition to crystal fractionation of a basaltic magma. The D/H ratios and Cl contents of the H2O-poor comenditic obsidians represent undegassed primary magmatic values. The H-isotope compositions and low H2O and Cl contents of the granites are consistent with major degassing of an H2O-saturated magma derived from interaction of sea- (or possibly meteoric) water with the H2O-undersaturated comenditic melt. It is proposed that, associated with caldera subsidence and stoping, water was sucked in around the residual magma before the system had time to be sealed. The magma consumed this H2O at a P of approx 1.5 kbar. The granites are the plutonic equivalents of rhyolitic pyroclastics and not directly of the comendites. Selected chemical and isotopic compositions of 24 samples from 11 localities are presented. [P.Br.]

The delta >18`O values of the granites are 0.0-0.3per mille, depleted in >18`O relative to the comendites. The O-isotopic trend of the lavas is consistent with a crystal fractionation model. Fresh igneous rocks with delta >18`O values #GT7per mille involve processes in addition to crystal fractionation of a basaltic magma.
