This comprehensive volume brings together in a well-organized format the vast experimental data on phase relationships in elements, oxides, and silicates at high temperatures and pressures. It also provides a useful introduction to the basic principles governing phase relationships and crystal structures of materials, and discusses how the data presented places constraints on possible earth models. The book is an essential resource to all those concerned with processes at depth within the earth, and is of particular significance to those doing research on the seismic structure of the mantle and on mantle convection.show more
