EXPERIMENTAL TESTS OF GARNET PERIDOTITE OXYGEN BAROMETRY

Abstract:

We have performed experiments aimed at testing the calibration of oxygen barometers for the garnet peridotite [garnet (Gt)-olivine (Ol)-orthopyroxene (Opx)] phase assemblage. These involved equilibrating a thin layer of garnet sandwiched between layers of olivine and orthopyroxene at 1300°C and 23-35 kbar for 1-7 days. Oxygen fugacity was controlled (but not buffered) by using inner capsules of Fe-Pt alloy or graphitc or molybdenum sealed in welded Pt outer capsules. Post-experiment measureme...
