Geochemical and field evidence suggest that melt transport in some regions of the mantle is localized into meso-scale “channels” that have widths of 0.1–100 meters or larger. Nevertheless, the mechanisms for formation of such channels from a grain-scale distribution of melt are poorly understood. The purpose of this paper is to investigate one possible mechanism for channel formation: the Reaction Infiltration Instability (RII). We present numerical solutions of the full equations for reactive… CONTINUE READING
