  • The advents of Zr-in-rutile thermometer and Ti-in-zircon thermometer have prompted wide applications to petrological problems as well as ongoing tests of its validity.The thermometers have gained much attention and wide application to different types of high-grade metamorphic rocks due to their simplicity and validity.There are several different calibrations for each thermometer.However,the applicability of those calibrations is still ambiguous with hot debates on interpretation of thermometric… CONTINUE READING
