Thermobarometry of HP/UHP rocks is of vital importance for the understanding of tectonic and rock forming processes and large-scale vertical transport of matter at great depths within the Earth. In recent years new sets of experiments, the extraction of internally consistent thermodynamic data set, together with elaborated composition-activity models for critical minerals have taken the art of estimation of metamorphic conditions several important steps forward. In this contribution we would like to present methods we regard as important for basic and ultrabasic compositions, and address problems of vital interest in modern geothermobarometric evaluations of HP/UHP rocks.
