Partitioning of trace elements between plagioclase, clinopyroxene and melt

Schoneveld, Louise Elizabeth


This study focusses on the partitioning of trace elements between plagioclase, clinopyroxene and equilibrium melt. Such mineral/melt partition coefficients are widely used to model petrogenetic processes in igneous systems. However, theoretical considerations lead us to expect that the values of partition coefficients will change with many variables, including both mineral and melt compositions, as well as temperature and pressure.
