Methane-bearing fluids in the upper mantle: an experimental approach

Matjuschkin, Vladimir; Woodland, A.B.; Yaxley, Greg


The main obstacle to understanding of the geological role of reduced, CH4-bearing fluids is the absence of a reliable experimental technique applicable to solid-media high-pressure apparatuses, allowing their observation and direct characterisation under laboratory conditions. In this study, we describe the main pitfalls of earlier designs and technical aspects related to achievement of strongly reduced oxygen fugacity (fO2) conditions (i.e., Fe–FeO, IW) and maintenance of a constant fluid...[Show more]
