III. Geodynamic Cycle of Volatile Elements

[caption id="attachment_8359" align="alignright" width="407"] Thin section microphotograph under plane polarised light. Characteristic lattice network of low-pressure serpentinisation is visible. Here, the ‘oceanisation’ process (i.e. hydrothermal metamorphism in ocean floor) represented by the networked lizardite, which is even cross cut by antigorite formed during the initial stage of the su...
