Partitioning Experiments

Research Interests

With Prof. Philip Candela and students in the Laboratory for Mineral Deposits Research, we are a performing a wide variety of hydrothermal experiments. These experiments are designed to allow for the acqusition of geologically reasonable processes, in a fashion that can provide useful and fundamental, thermodynamically valid, data. These experiments have been formulated to yield information about the transport of metals in silicic magmas in mineral, melts and magmatic fluids, and to model sub-solidus alteration associated with the crystallization of plutons and dikes.
