Depth to the under-saturated solidus: Approach II. Theory-based & constrained by water-saturated & dry solidi.

Depth to the under-saturated solidus: Approach II. Theory-based & constrained by water-saturated & dry solidi: 

Depth to the under-saturated solidus: Approach II. Theory-based & constrained by water-saturated & dry solidi water-saturated solidus aH2O=1 dry solidus aH2O=0 Map contours of aH2O between dry & saturated solidi. This gives Tsolidus(aH2O,P) Next we need to know aH2O....

Depth to the under-saturated solidus: Approach II. Theory-based & constrained by water-saturated & dry solidi: 

Depth to the under-saturated solidus: Approach II. Theory-based & constrained by water-saturated & dry solidi 2) Compute fraction saturation XH2O(P)=Col0/ Colsat(P) Olivine water content: Col0 of MORB source Colsat(P) (there’s something wrong with the data &/or analysis used for this part)

Depth to the under-saturated solidus: Approach II. Theory based & constrained by data for water-saturated & dry solidi: 

Depth to the under-saturated solidus: Approach II. Theory based & constrained by data for water-saturated & dry solidi 2) Compute fraction saturation XH2O(P)=Col0/ Colsat(P) 3) aH2O(P)=lXH2O(P), with activity coefficient l = 1.0

Depth to the under-saturated solidus: Approach II. : 

Depth to the under-saturated solidus: Approach II. water-saturated solidus aH2O=1 dry solidus aH2O=0 Map aH2O (in the solid) onto P-T phase diagram, Tsolidus(aH2O,P) Compute fraction saturation XH2O(P)=Col0/ Colsat(P) aH2O(P)=lXH2O(P), with activity coefficient l = 1.0 Combine (1) and (3) to get Tsolidus(aH2O (P) ,P) Tsolidus(P)

Depth to the under-saturated solidus: Approach III. adapted from Hirth and Kohlstedt pMELTS can deal with H2O in anhydrous minerals only hydrous minerals, melt, or vapor therefore... -Compute aH2O in olivine like HK, -Solves equilibrium mineralogy -Checks if pMELTS predicts melt or vapor phase
