About this book

This book brings together review and research articles united by the theme of deformation-enhanced fluid transport, with the aim of emphasizing the many common roots of this important body of work. Subjects covered include the movement of basaltic melts in the mantle; the segregation, ascent and emplacement of granitic melts in the crust; the flow through the crust of volatile fluids produced during metamorphic events; and the movement of aqueous fluids through fractured rocks near the Earth's surface.


The importance and wide application of fluid flow linked to deformation; static permeability models of mantle and crustal materials; basitic melts; granitic melts; metamorphic volatiles.
