Dear Matt,

         I found the articles in the issue of Elements on "Continental 
Crust at Mantle Depths" to be a good overview of subduction zone 
processes. August 2013 – Volume 9 Number 4

I’m not looking for a single paper that discusses all these topics (if one even exists), rather something on geophysics, something on geochemistry, etc. I’d like to amass multiple possibilities for each topic.
