Estimation of trace element concentrations in the lunar magma ocean using mineral- and metal-silicate melt partition coefficients
(The Meteoritical Society, 2015)
Abstract–This study uses experimentally determined plagioclase-melt D values to estimate the trace element concentrations of Sr, Hf, Ga, W, Mo, Ru, Pd, Au, Ni, and Co in a crystallizing lunar ...
