The viscosity of magma plays a crucial role in the dynamics of the Earth: from the crystallization of a magma ocean during its initial stages to modern-day volcanic processes. However, the pressure-dependence behavior of viscosity at high pressure remains controversial. In this study, we report the results of first-principles molecular dynamics sim...
Water influences geodynamic processes such as melting, deformation and rheology. Yet its distribution in the oceanic upper mantle is primarily known indirectly from melt inclusions and glasses of erupted mantle melts (i.e. mid-ocean ridge and ocean island basalts). To better constrain the mechanisms influencing the distribution of H2O in the mantle...
Water in the mantle influences magmatism and rheology. Yet existing water contents in mantle xenolith phases show a highly variable water content distribution in the oceanic lithosphere [1,2]. Here, water concentrations in olivine and pyroxenes were determined by FTIR in harzburgite and dunite xenoliths from Savai’i (Samoa) to better constrain the...
