Computational petrology: Subsolidus equilibria in the upper mantle

Sommacal, Silvano


Processes that take place in the Earth’s mantle are not accessible to direct observation. Natural samples of mantle material that have been transported to the surface as xenoliths provide useful information on phase relations and compositions of phases at the pressure and temperature conditions of each rock fragment. In the past, considerable effort has been devoted by petrologists to investigate upper mantle processes experimentally. Results of high temperatures, high pressure experiments...[Show more]
