Oceanic plateaus are formed by a large volume of basaltic rocks on top of the oceanic lithosphere. Alteration of these basalt lava piles leads to significant chemical element exchanges between mantle and oceans that can strongly influence chemical budget. Here we report boron (B), chlorine (Cl), and other element concentrations in basalt samples from the Shatsky Rise to define alteration processes and to estimate the significance of oceanic plateaus in storing these elements. Sampling includes 121 basaltic lavas and 92 fresh glasses collected at various depths from Holes U1346A, U1347A, U1349A, and U1350A during Integrated Ocean Drilling Program Expedition 324....
