Previous experimental deformation of orthorhombic enstatite at temperatures from 200° to 1000°C has produced clinoenstatite; yet, the natural occurrences of clinoenstatite in deformed rocks is extremely rare. The present experiments were conducted on the premise that transformation to clinoenstatite and slip in orthoenstatite are competing rate-controlled deformation processes, with slip having the higher activation energy. The results show that, at strain rates of 10−3 to 10−7 sec−1, slip… CONTINUE READING
