Metamorphic Fluids and Metasomatism and Metasomatism.ppt

John Winter, Department of Geology

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. 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.
