Metamorphic devolatilization generates fluids at, or near, lithostatic pressure. These fluids are ultimately expelled by compaction. It is doubtful that fluid generation and compaction operate on the same time scale at low metamorphic grade, even in rocks that are deforming by ductile mechanisms in response to tectonic stress. However, thermally-activated viscous compaction may dominate fluid flow patterns at moderate to high metamorphic grades. Compaction-driven fluid flow organizes into self… CONTINUE READING
