We have performed two suites of experiments at 600°C and 200 MPa on samples of Arkansas Novaculite to investigate the effect of fluid chemistry on the local distribution of fluids amid grains of solid rock under crustal conditions. Analysis of texture before and after these experiments indicates that fluid chemistry has an effect on both equilibrium wetting angles and the degree of fluid connectivity along triple junctions. The first suite of experiments shows that triple grain junctions in low… CONTINUE READING
