Project: Research

Project Details


Our objectives include to: (1) investigate the plausibility of forming Fe-Ti oxide rich deposits during open system melt migration processes involving melt-rock interactions; (2) formulate microstructural and chemical fingerprints of melt migration as the source of Fe-Ti oxides; and (3) assess the rheological consequence of melt migration and melt-rock interactions
