  • The address is a wide-ranging commentary on the physical aspects of granitic magma and deals especially with the mode of emplacement. Recommendations on the nomenclature of plutons and batholiths involve both a description of the actual shape and their modeling by experimental and salt-diapir analogues. The nature of granitic crystal-mushes, wet or dry, is discussed in the light of the special properties of pseudoplastics, particularly the influence of the physical state on the sinking of… CONTINUE READING
