The application of olivine geothermometry to infer crystallization temperatures of parental liquids: implications for the temperature of MORB magmas

Falloon, Trevor; Danyushevsky, Leonid V.; Ariskin, A; Green, David; Ford, Clifford


We have performed a detailed evaluation of three olivine geothermometers for anhydrous systems representing three different approaches to modelling olivine-melt equilibrium. The Ford et al. [Ford, C. E., Russell, D. G., Craven, J.A., Fisk, M. R., 1983. Olivine-liquid equilibria: Temperature, pressure and composition dependence of the crystal/liquid cation partition coefficients for Mg, Fe2+, Ca and Mn. J. Petrol., 24, 256-265.] geothermometer describes olivine liquidus temperature as a function...[Show more]
