EMU Notes in Mineralogy 16

Published by the European Mineralogical Union and the Mineralogical Society of Great Britain & Ireland

In the late 20th century advances in experimentation and in material characterization greatly fostered the development of internally consistent thermodynamic data. Together with the development of thermodynamic modelling tools this enhanced our ability to analyse phase equilibria in rocks and to obtain accurate quantitative information on the conditions of magmatic and metamorphic crystallization. This gave an unprecedented boost to mineralogy, petrology and geochemistry and helped illuminate long-standing questions in geodynamics as well as in geo- and cosmochemistry. Attainment of thermodynamic equilibrium among the phases constituting a rock and metastable preservation of equilibrium phase relations, which are indispensable pre-requisites for application of equilibrium thermodynamics, could be demonstrated or, in many cases, were tacitly assumed.

This volume accompanies an EMU School which was intended to bring contemporary research on mineral reaction kinetics to the attention of young researchers and to put it into the context of recent developments in related disciplines. The school and the accompanying volume cannot give a comprehensive review of the current state of geomaterials research. Rather a selection of topics, methods and concepts, which the contributors deem currently most relevant and instructive, is presented.
