Convergent margin magmatism – also called arc magmatism – occurs at straight or curved alignments (arcs) of discrete volcano-plutonic complexes that form above a subduction zone, where oceanic plate material (lithosphere plus sediments) is recycled into Earth’s mantle (Fig. 1).Convergent plate margins are one of the two types of plate boundaries where abundant igneous activity is caused. Magmatism at Convergent Plate Margins 1. Convergent Plate Margins The convergent plate margins are the most intense areas of active magmatism above sea level at the present time. Most of world's violent volcanic activity occurs along these zones. In addition, much magmatism .

Destructive plate margin magmagenesis is one of the most intensely studied and widely debated topics in the earth sciences at present. Calc-alkaline volcanic and plutonic rocks in orogenic settings exhibit such a diversity of composition and character that the subducted oceanic lithosphere, the overlying 'enriched' lithospheric mantle.
