The role of mechanical mixing in the formation of reaction zones in subduction-related melange
Traverses across metamorphic reaction zones at contacts between mafic rocks and ultramafic mélange matrix were analyzed in two mélange zones (Catalina Schist, Santa Catalina Island, CA, and Attic-Cycladic ...
Quantitative modeling of mantle heterogeneity and structure
Mantle-derived rocks, particularly mid-ocean ridge basalts (MORB) and intraplate ocean island basalts (OIB), provide insights into the compositional heterogeneity and first-order structural make-up of the modern mantle; ...
The Effect of CO2 on Copper Partitioning in Sulfur- Free and Sulfur-Bearing Felsic Melt-Vapor-Brine Assemblages
Analysis of fluid inclusions from porphyry copper deposits (PCD) reveals that magmatic vapor and/or brine are vital for the removal of copper from arc magmas and its transport to the site of ore formation. Experiments in ...
Reaction rates and textural development of hydrolysis reactions in the system MgO-SiO2-H2O
Experiments in the simplified systems MgO-SiO<sub>2</sub>-H<sub>2</sub>O (MSH) and MgO-SiO<sub>2</sub>-H<sub>2</sub>O-CO<sub>2</sub> (MSHC) have been conducted by using hydrothermal diamond anvil cells to investigate ...

Anatexis and crustal differentiation: Insights from the Fosdick migmatite-granite complex, West Antarctica
In the Fosdick migmatite-granite complex of West Antarctica, U-Pb geochronology of monazite in migmatites and zircon in granites records two episodes of high-temperature metamorphism, one in the Devonian-Carboniferous and ...
