Physical Properties of Silicate Melt at High Pressure

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In order to understand the magmatic process, a knowledge of the physical properties of silicate melt is required. Density and viscosity are especially fundamental properties, which control the migration of magmas and the separation of residual crystals. In this article, recent advances in the investigation of silicate melt at high pressure are reviewed.
