Effects of fro and HzO on andesite phase relations between 2 and 4 kbar

Abstract : Experimentalp hasee quilibriah ave been investigatedo n three medium-K silicic andesite (60-61 wt % SiO2) samples from Mount Pelhe at 2-4 kbar, 850-1040øC, under both vapor-saturatedC O2-freea nd vapor-saturatedC O2-bearingc onditions.M ost experiments were crystallizatione xperimentsu singd ry glassesp reparedf rom the naturalr ocks.B oth normal-a nd rapidq uenche xperimentsw ere performed.T wo rangeso f oxygenf ugacity( fo2) were investigatedN: NO (Ni-NiO buffer) to NNO + 1 and NNO + 2 to NNO + 3. At 2 kbar for moderatelyo xidizing conditionsp, lagioclase( pl) and magnetite( mt) are the liquidus phases, followed by low-Ca pyroxene (opx); these three phases coexist over a large temperature( T)-H20 range( 875-950øC and 5-7 wt % H20 in melt). Amphibole (am) is stable undern ear vapor-saturatedC O2-freec onditionsa t 876øC. At 900øC, ilmenite (ilm) is found only in experimentsle sst hano r equalt o NNO. Upon increasingp ressure( P) underv aporsaturatedC O2-freec onditionsp, l + mt is replacedb y am + mt on the liquidusa bove3 .5 kbar. For highly oxidizingc onditionsm, t is the solel iquidusp hasea t 2 kbar, followed by pl and opx, except in the most H20-rich part of the diagram at 930øC, where opx is replaced by Carich pyroxene( cpx) and am.
