There are four ways by which OH- commonly substitutes into olivine, namely those associated with (1) Si vacancies, (2) Mg vacancies, (3) Ti, or (4) trivalent cations. The four mechanisms, which we label [Si], [Mg], [Ti], and [triv], respectively, may each be fingerprinted by their characteristic O-H stretching modes in the infrared spectrum. We show by comparing the integrated intensities of these characteristic infrared peaks against total water content analyzed by secondary ion mass...[Show more]
