Binary and Greater Systems Phase.ppt

John Winter, Department of Geology

This PowerPoint presentation is part of the Whitman College petrology course. The presentation covers isobaric ternary T-X diagrams (An-Di-Fo), liquidus, intensive variables, cotectic, peritectic, and cooling paths. Solid solution and 4 component diagrams are described as well as the effect of water on melting temperatures. This resource is part of the Teaching Petrology collection.

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.
