Description of conditions of melts and solutions differentiation in the mantle and crust

© O. V. Usenko

Melt is a solution of electrolyte and its structure under PT-conditions of the mantle is similar to the structure of water solution. As independent parameters describing its behavior under constant pressure and temperature we propose to use characteristics h and . Detailed reconstruction of physical-chemical interactions taking place in the mantle and crust permits to solve not only theoretical problems but also essentially localize the sites of search of mineral deposits related to magmatic melts and hydrothermal solutions.
