The geometrical distribution of the aqueous fluid in textural equilibrium with forsterite has been investigated by measurements of the dihedral angle, θ, at pressures of 3 and 5 GPa and at 1000°C. The measured θ at 3 and 5 GPa are 48° and 40° to 42°, respectively. Since a value of θ smaller than 60° indicates that the aqueous fluid can form an interconnected network along the three-grain and through the four-grain junctions, the existing aqueous fluid in the mantle can migrate by percolation… CONTINUE READING
