Fig. 7

Densities of the solidus melt and mantle peridotite at 1, 3, and 7 GPa. Diamonds and rectangles show densities of the primitive peridotite and densities of the near-solidus melts, respectively. The solidus melts are less dense than the mantle peridotite. Therefore, the solidus melts should ascend in the mantle
