Title: Thermodynamic calculations of Fe–Mg interdiffusion in (Mg,Fe){sub 2}SiO{sub 4} polymorphs and perovskite

In this study, we show that the temperature and pressure dependence of Fe–Mg interdiffusion in (Fe,Mg){sub 2}SiO{sub 4} polymorphs (olivine, wadsleyite, and ringwoodite) and perovskite can be successfully reproduced in terms of bulk elastic and expansivity data through a thermodynamic model (so-called cBΩ model) that interconnects point defect parameters with bulk properties. Under dry and wet conditions, our calculated Fe–Mg interdiffusion coefficients D{sub calc}{sup Fe-Mg} (particularly for anisotropic diffusivity in olivine), activation enthalpy h{sup act}, and activation volume υ{sup act} over a wide range of geologically relevant temperatures (1000–2400 K) and pressures (0–100 GPa) are consistent with the experimental ones when the uncertainties are considered.
