John Winter, Montana State University


This PowerPoint presentation is part of the Whitman College petrology course. The presentation covers the crystal behavior of melts through the phase rule, pressure/temperature diagrams, isobaric temperature/weight percentage diagrams, two component eutectic systems, and binary peritectic systems. This resource is part of the Teaching Petrology collection. http://serc.carleton.edu/NAGTWorkshops/petrology03/index.html

Part of the Cutting Edge collection. The NAGT/DLESE On the Cutting Edge project helps geoscience faculty stay up-to-date with both geoscience research and teaching methods.
