Abstract

The magmatic rocks from Jabuka, Brusnik, Vis Islands and the submerged Brusnik plateau have been investigated to define their age and genetic affinity, identifying their role in the geodynamics of the Adria Plate. The plutonic and lava flow samples have been characterized for their petrography, mineral chemistry, whole rock major and trace elements, and Sr and Nd isotopic compositions. The two samples with the freshest plagioclase crystals have been selected for 40Ar/39Ar analysis, which gave ages of 221.5 ± 2.5 Ma (Brusnik) and 227 ± 5 Ma (Jabuka), similar to those of the Triassic magmatism from the northern part of the Adria Plate and neighbouring territories. Geochemical and isotopic data suggest that the magmatism dominantly sourced from spinel peridotites variously metasomatized during pre-Mesozoic subduction events. Furthermore, the investigated rocks evidence interactions of the magmas with Mid-Late Triassic evaporites. The comparison with other coeval magmatic occurrences from the Adria Plate and its edges shows that the subduction signature of the Triassic within-plate magmatism is mainly related to the evolution of the upper mantle of the Adria Plate.
