Abstract. Crystal size distributions (CSD) of plagioclase, olivine and clinopyroxene from the Kiglapait intrusion, Labrador were measured for a series of 13 samples spanning most of the exposed intrusion. All CSDs lack small crystals and are slightly curved to the right, concave up. All CSDs of a mineral sweep out a fan, as expected where there is relatively little variation in phase proportion. CSD dispersion can be replicated using the communicating neighbours model of textural coarsening… CONTINUE READING
