INFILTRATION OF AQUEOUS FLUID AND HIGH FLUID - ROCK RATIOS DURING GREENSCHIST FACIES METAMORPHISM - A DISCUSSION

Abstract:

Ferry's (1984) analysis of the biotite isograd in pelitic schists of the Waterville Formation (south-central Maine, U.S.A.) led to the conclusion that metamorphism had been caused by infiltration of 1-2 rock volumes of aqueous fluid. We find that this important observation is extremely sensitive to the assumed temperature of metamorphism and to corresponding uncertainties in the thermodynamic data and solution assumptions. Uncertainties in the experimental calibrations of the geothermometers ...
