To investigate eclogite melting under mantle conditions, we have performed a series of piston-cylinder experiments using a homogeneous synthetic starting material (GA2) that is representative of altered mid-ocean ridge basalt. Experiments were conducted at pressures of 3·0, 4·0 and 5·0 GPa and over a temperature range of 1200-1600°C. The subsolidus mineralogy of GA2 consists of garnet and clinopyroxene with minor quartz-coesite, rutile and feldspar. Solidus temperatures are located at 1230°C at...[Show more]
