Different regions of the mantle and crust give rise to a wide range of fluid compositions which, according to temperature, pressure and composition, can show complete miscibility to complete immiscibility. Partial miscibility of fluids in the crust, and the changes in miscibility as conditions change, have a range of consequences, which are explored in this volume. There are 12 chapters on fluid–fluid interactions in the Earth’s lithosphere: Experimental Studies in Model Fluid Systems, Equations of State for Complex Fluids, Liquid Immiscibility in Silicate Melts and Related Systems, Phase Relations Involving Hydrous Silicate Melts, Aqueous fluids and Minerals, Numerical Simulation of...
