Fig. 7

Schematic cross-sections of Izu-Bonin and Mariana fore-arcs at early stage and at present. This cartoon emphasizes the differences in structural settings that might favor the rise of serpentinite mud diapirs. FABs fore-arc basalts. As in Fig. 4, black and grey lines outline the present and reconstructed slab’s top and upper plate geometries with respect to a reference line that could be the present volcanic arc
