Mineral equilibria modelling for earth processes

Grant number: DP0451770

Abstract

The aim of the project is to develop methodologies, and to generate an internally-consistent set of thermodynamic descriptions of minerals, in multicomponent systems, so that reliable mineral equilibria modelling can be undertaken in the majority of systems of geological interest. Such mineral equilibria modelling will allow the testing of hypotheses regarding Earth processes, for example in relation to mountain building, granite magmatism, and the generation of gold deposits.
