Abstract: We investigated the potential of multi-collector secondary ion mass spectrometry (MC-SIMS) as a tool for obtaining Sr isotopic compositions in plagioclase, a ubiquitous mineral in igneous rocks that serves as a recorder of crystallization history. MC-SIMS allows for high spatial resolution analysis (similar to 12 mu m in this study) of isotopes, and therefore improves the temporal scale at which fluctuations in crystallization conditions can be recognized, ultimately improving our understanding of rates of magmatic processes. Plagioclase crystals from two young rhyolitic deposits from two major eruptive complexes, Tarawera and Haroharo, of the Okataina Volcanic Centre in New Zealand were analysed. Results were corrected for matrix effects using linear modelling of MC-SIMS data versus An contents, as well as Sr-87/Sr-86 ratios acquired via laser ablation inductively-coupled plasma mass spectrometry (LA-MC-ICP-MS). Corrected MC-SIMS Sr isotopic ratios had an average 2 sigma uncertainty of +/- 0.0008 per spot, and were homogeneous in Okataina plagioclase at high spatial resolutions. Average LA-MC-ICP-MS Sr-87/Sr-86 ratios of plagioclase from both intra-caldera volcanic complexes (Tarawera Sr-87/Sr-86 = 0.7056 and Haroharo Sr-87/Sr-86 = 0.7054) suggest similar magma sources and similar assimilation and fractional crystallization processes for the two complexes. Overall homogeneity of plagioclase (excluding relict cores) indicates no significant changes in contributions (i.e., crustal assimilation, mafic influx) to the system during the majority of plagioclase crystal growth. Furthermore, lack of Sr-87/Sr-86 ratio fluctuations in plagioclase rims suggest interaction between the resident silicic magma and the intruding mafic magma that triggered the eruptions was largely limited to volatile and heat transfer. Using appropriate standards and analysis, this MC-SIMS method can be used to detect short-lived, open-system events in magma reservoirs where differences in Sr-87/Sr-86 isotopic ratios are significant.
