John Winter, Department of Geology


This 93-slide PowerPoint presentation is part of the Whitman College petrology course. The presentation discusses the compatibility of elements, addressing Goldschmidt's Rules, fractionation, and bulk distribution coefficients. Other topics described include batch melting, fractional crystallization, Rayleigh fractionation, rare-earth elements, large-ion-lithophile and high field strength elements. This resource is part of the Teaching Petrology collection. http://serc.carleton.edu/NAGTWorkshops/petrology03/index.html

Part of the Cutting Edge collection. The NAGT/DLESE On the Cutting Edge project helps geoscience faculty stay up-to-date with both geoscience research and teaching methods.
