UPPER MANTLE OXYGEN FUGACITY RECORDED BY SPINEL LHERZOLITES

Abstract:

The oxygen fugacities (fO2s) recorded by rocks from the Earth's upper mantle have been the subject of much recent study and controversy1-7. Discussion has been stimulated by reported differences of several orders of magnitude between measurements made by different methods (Fig. 1). Oxygen fugacity is an important parameter because, together with temperature, pressure and composition, fO2 controls the petrogenesis of mantle-derived magmas, affects the composition and speciation of mantle fluid...
