adakites

[′a·də‚kīts]
(geology)
Rocks formed from lavas that melted from subducting slabs associated with either volcanic arcs or arc/continent collision zones; they were first described from Adak Island in the Aleutians.

For both La Yeguada and El Valle, the term adakite was applied to the young group of rocks based on chemical composition (Richards, 2007) and was presumed to result from a change of style in sub-duction below the Panama block (Castillo, 2006).
