Magma Diversification

John Winter, Department of Geology

This PowerPoint presentation is part of the Whitman College petrology course. Subjects include fractional crystallization, compaction, flow segregation, volatile transport, the Soret Effect, thermogravitational diffusion, magma mixing, and assimilation. Tectonic-igneous relationships are also addressed. 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.
