Abstract

In view of the prime importance of silicate melting as a clue to the origin of chemical stratification in the mantle, we have developed an experimental technique to make static experiments on melting of silicates up to 20GPa. We have carried out melting experiments on several silicates in the pressure range from 10-20GPa. Melting behavior has been studied on fayalite to 16GPa, forsterite to 15GPa, pyrope to 10GPA, and the binary systems of fayalite-ferrosilite and pyrope-forsterite at 5GPa. Results are presented.-Authors
