This 33-slide PowerPoint presentation introduces metamorphic fluids and metasomatism. Topics covered include fluid speciation, solubility of chemical species, equilibrium of mineral species in zones, chemical potential, and variations in chemical potentials across metasomatic zones. A series of figures illustrates variations in skarns. Ternary diagrams and a number of graphs are used as instructive tools in this presentation.
