At confining pressures up to 6 GPa (200 km depth), antigorite is the most abundant hydrous phase in the mantle between 300 and 700 °C (Wunder and Schreyer 1997). Therefore, the dehydration of antigorite has been studied for decades as it is considered as the most probable trigger of earthquakes in the mantle of subducting slabs (10 to 40 km below the subduction interface; e.g., Peacock 2001; Hacker et al. 2003; Abers et al. 2013).

Liu et al. (2019) studied the kinetics of antigorite dehydration at 1 atm using non-isothermal thermogravimetric analysis, which allows determination...
