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. 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.
