  • The SNC meteorites are a class of eight basaltic achondrites that have extremely young crystallization ages ({le}1.3 Ga). Chassigny, a unique SNC meteorite, is a dunite containing Of{sub 68} olivines and rare poikilitic Ca-pyroxenes. It is one of the most primitive SNC meteorites, and thus is most likely to reveal information about the SNC basalt source region. This study presents a detailed examination of partially crystallized melt inclusions in cumulus olivine grains in Chassigny. These trapped melts are argued to be representative samples of the melt that existed when Chassigny crystallized. This melt has been modified, however, by interaction withmore » the host olivine and by closed-system crystallization. The phases inside the melt inclusions include hydrous Ti-rich amphibole (kaersutite), biotite, two pyroxenes, and rhyolitic and alkali feldspar glasses. All phases have been extensively analyzed with an electron microprobe. The new mineralogical information is combined with a complementary experimental study of kaersutite/melt equilibria. This combined data set can be used to formulate a system of linear equations which can then be solved to determine the composition of the originally trapped melt. This calculation reveals that the trapped melt was an FeO-rich and Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}-poor basalt.« less
  • The thick oceanic crust of Iceland is formed by tholeiitic central volcanoes arranged in en echelon patterns along the 40-50 km wide rift zones. The Hengill central volcano in the southwestern rift zone has produced 25-30 km{sup 3} of hyaloclastites and lava during the last 0.11 m.y., with maximum productivity during the isostatic rebound following the degalciations 0.13 and 0.01 m.y. ago. The petrographic relations of pillow rim and hyaloclastite glass indicate that the basaltic melts were saturated with olivine and plagioclase, except for the most primitive ones that were undersaturated with plagioclase. Saturation with clinopyroxene was reached in somemore » of the intermediate and evolved basaltic melts. Corroded and partly resorbed crystals of clinopyroxene and partly disintegrated gabbro nodules with resorbed clinopyroxene indicate that selective assimilation contributed to the evolution of the most primitive melts. The intermediate and evolved basaltic glass compositions fall along the low-pressure cotectic for mid-ocean ridge basalt (MORB) compositions saturated with olivine, plagioclase, and clinopyroxene, but the primitive glasses fall well inside the low-pressure olivine + plagioclase primary phase volume. The dense picritic magmas were driven to the surface by magmatic overpressure in the mantle at an early deglaciation stage characterized by the absence of large, trapping magma chambers in the lower crust. The assimilation of clinopyroxene in these melts could proceed by direct contact with the solidified cumulate sequences and gabbro intrusions. Clinopyroxene assimilation in combination with olivine fractionation may also contribute to the chemical evolution of some of the most primitive MORB magmas.« less

  • Partitioning interwell tracer tests (PITTs) that were developed by the petroleum industry are being used to characterize the extent and amount of subsurface contamination by nonaqueous phase liquids (NAPLs). A promising application of PITTS is to estimate the volume of contamination removed by various remediation technologies by conducting the tests before and after remediation efforts. Laboratory experiments with a light NAPL from Hill Air Force Base, UT, the site of the SERDP demonstration of innovative technologies, indicate that the type of remediation technology used changes the partitioning of the tracer compounds between the NAPL and the aqueous phase. Partitioning coefficientsmore » (K{sub nw}) that were measured by static and dynamic methods showed a statistically significant change in value after the NAPL was treated in batchwise washes with a cosolvent that simulated enhanced dissolution. In contrast, the value of K{sub nw} showed little change before and after the NAPL was treated in a column with a cosolvent that simulated mobilization. The results indicate that PITTS could significantly underestimate the volume remaining of a complex NAPL like the Hill AFB material for an operation that employs the solubilization mechanism without a corrected K{sub nw} for the post-treatment test.« less
