Fig. 6

Schematic tectono-magmatic model of IBM subduction initiation and early evolution. Special emphasis has been done on the geodynamic context of various magma eruptions. The white lines in stage "40 Ma - present" represent the former positions of plate boundaries or the base of the upper plate in stage "45-40 Ma". TF = transform fault, PAC = Pacific, FAB = Fore-arc basalts
