Precise geothermometry on fluid inclusion populations that trapped mixtures of immiscible fluids

Loucks, R.R.


A population of fluid inclusions that sampled boiling, condensing, effervescing, or otherwise immiscible fluids (aqueous, carbonic, or silicate melt) is potentially the most sensitive of geothermobarometers for diagenetic, hydrothermal, metamorphic, and igneous environments. This paper introduces a new, simple procedure for high-precision (to tenths of a degree usually) retrieval of crystal growth temperatures, which extends applications of fluid-inclusion studies for gradient-reconstructive...[Show more]
