2021-2022 Undergraduate Catalog

GEOL 413 Experimental Petrology

Students are introduced with several experimental apparatuses that are designed to simulate the behavior of Earth's materials at different P-T conditions. Student will learn various heterogeneous phase equilibria that are of interest to geologists. Students are expected to learn how to construct various phase diagrams and to apply appropriate melting systems to model the formation of solid Earth and the other terrestrial bodies.

Prerequisite: GEOL 310.
