Pervasive flooding of CO2 has been proposed as the cause of granulite facies metamorphism that is capable of producing many distinctive characteristics of the deep continental crust: reduced water activity, orthopyroxene-bearing assemblages, depletion of large-ion lithophile (LIL) elements, and dehydration1–6. The calculations presented here of C–O–H fluid… CONTINUE READING
