Summary:Trondhjemite-tonalite-dacite magmas (high-Al TTD/adakite) with a unique compositional character can be generated by high-P partial melting of a basaltic source under garnet amphibolite to eclogitic conditions. Under the elevated geotherms of the Archaean, the production of high-Al TTD is considered to be a major continental crust-forming mechanism, whereas in Cainozoic tectonic regimes where young, hot oceanic crust has subducted, melting of the subducted slab can occur. The approximate upper age limit for slab melt generation is considered to be 25 m.y., on the basis of natural occurrences of adakites. Intermediate to felsic arc volcanic and plutonic rocks from an overthickened continental arc setting have some similarities with adakites due to plagioclase instability and involvement of garnet in their petrogenesis. However, adakites have lower Sr isotopic compositions, lower LIL element concentrations, a positive Sr anomaly and common presence of a mantle component in the slab melts. Adakites and transitional adakites show progressive enrichment in Cr and Ni due to mantle contamination. [R.A.H.]
