Geochronologic evidence of upper-crustal in situ differentiation: Silicic magmatism at the Organ caldera complex, New Mexico

Determining the processes that generate caldera-related silicic magmas and the origin of compositional zonation patterns of ignimbrites is central to our understanding of caldera-forming eruptions. Though the hazards associated with calderas are well known, caldera eruptions are infrequent and have not been directly observed. Because of this, most caldera magmatism models are developed using extinct caldera systems. In this study, Matthew Zimmerer and William McIntosh, conducted 40Ar/39Ar and laser ablation-inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry U/Pb zircon dating of the volcanic and plutonic rocks from the Organ caldera complex in order to accomplish two primary goals: (1) to investigate the time scales of caldera magmatism, from inception to cessation; and (2) to determine whether the caldera-forming silicic ignimbrites were generated by upper-crustal in situ differentiation or were generated at deeper crustal levels. This was accomplished by comparing the timing of caldera ignimbrite eruptions to the emplacement history of the Organ Needle pluton, the proposed residual crystal mush of the caldera magma chamber.
