PREDICTION OF CRYSTAL-MELT PARTITION-COEFFICIENTS FROM ELASTIC-MODULI

Abstract:

Many geochemical processes, such as crystallization of silicate magmas or planetary differentiation, require a knowledge of the way in which elements become partitioned between coexisting crystal and liquid phases. But quantitative prediction of crystal/melt partition coefficients from thermodynamic principles has not previously been possible. By studying the partitioning of 15 elements between silicate minerals and their coexisting melts, we show here that the partitioning behaviour of any s...
