Dear WM, I send you two working papers (Paper 1, Paper 2) that describe new types of information on poorly known trace elements and their variations along the Iceland-Reykjanes Ridge region. The interpretations have been challenging. The data are available on the EarthChem Library and PeTDB for anyone to use and/or further interpret. Please solicit comments on our papers on your Mantle Plume website.–Jean-Guy Schilling

Dear WM, The number of plume types has now reached 70! Congratulations for this new milestone, and looking forward to the next ten!
