Experiments on rocks, minerals, magmas and fluids have contributed to the better understanding of geological processes in recent years. This introduction to experimental geochemistry and petrology is intended to stimulate earth scientists to further experimentation. With the use of case histories illustrating principles and techniques, the authors explain why experiments are useful, what kind of work can be done, what some of the major problems and limitations are and how they can be avoided.
The scope of experimental geochemistry; the good experiement; the machines; metamorphic experiements - solid-solid reactions; metamorphic experiments with fluids; just fluids; igneous experiements on melts and crystals; physical properties of earth materials.
