FTIR spectroscopy of Ti-chondrodite, Ti-clinohumite, and olivine in deeply subducted serpentinites and implications for the deep water cycle

Shen, Tingting; Hermann, Joerg; Zhang, Lifei; Padron-Navarta, Jose; Chen, Jing


Separated olivine grains from a deeply subducted serpentinized wehrlite (Changawuzi in the western Tianshan ultrahigh-pressure belt, China) were analysed with unpolarized transmission FTIR and the Ti contents were determined using LA-ICP-MS. The major bands in the olivine spectra display striking similarities to Ti-clinohumite and are interpreted as OH in lamellae. The quantification of the water content in lamellae requires calibration of the IR-absorption for such bands. We have obtained a...[Show more]
