Diffusion and solubilities of selected trace elements in olivine

Zhukova, Irina


Olivine with major element composition approximately (Mg0.9Fe0.1)2SiO4 is the principal mineral in the Earth's upper mantle and, as a consequence, its chemical and physical properties are of great importance for understanding processes in the deep Earth. Among the most important properties is diffusion, which controls the rates of many mantle processes. The effect of temperature, pressure and oxygen fugacity on olivine diffusion rates has been well studied. But the effects of varying the...[Show more]
