Implications of Reactions Between SO2 and Basaltic Glasses for the Mineralogy of Planetary Crusts

Renggli, Christian; Palm, Andrew; King, Penelope; Guagliardo, P.


Basalts are ubiquitous in volcanic systems on several planetary bodies, including the Earth, Mars, Venus, and Jupiter's moon Io, and are commonly associated with sulfur dioxide (SO2) degassing. We present the results of an experimental study of reactions between SO2 and basaltic glasses. We examined Fe‐free basalt, and Fe‐bearing tholeiitic and alkali basalts with a range of Fe3+/Fetotal (0.05 to 0.79) that encompass the oxygen fugacities proposed for most terrestrial planetary bodies....[Show more]
