Major element and primary sulfur concentrations in Apollo 12 mare basalts: The view from melt inclusions

Bombardieri, Daniel; Norman, Marc; Kamenetsky, Vadim S; Danyushevsky, Leonid V.

Description

Major element and sulfur concentrations have been determined in experimentally heated olivine-hosted melt inclusions from a suite of Apollo 12 picritic basalts (samples 12009, 12075, 12020, 12018, 12040, 12035). These lunar basalts are likely to be genetically related by olivine accumulation (Walker et al. 1976a, b). Our results show that major element compositions of melt inclusions from samples 12009, 12075, and 12020 follow model crystallization trends from a parental liquid similar in...[Show more]
