Forman, Calibration of the Pressure Dependence of the Rl Ruby Fluorescence Line to 195 kbar, J.
1 kbar pressure raises [T.sub.g] and [T.sub.m] by 15-20[degrees]C [22, 23].
The system contains 60 mmolal U, and calculations are isobaric at 3 kbar.
Analyses of the multiequilibrium between chlorite and phengite solide solution following Lanari et al (2010) method, allow the estimation of metamorphic conditions at 400degC for 5 Kbar for this last event.
Geobarometers gave pressure estimates close to 6 kbar. The results of core-core and rim-rim thermobarometry suggested near-isobaric post-peak cooling of 85-170[degrees]C.
The origin of the mineral of the cordierite series, on the other hand, is abruptly discontinuous with regard to this metamorphism not only as for the metamorphic parameters with pressure sunk below 4 kbar (Kroner 1992) but also in time.
The ordering temperature increases with increasing pressure at the extraordinary rate of 23 K/kbar, where 1 kbar = [10.sup.8] Pa.
He investigated the behavior and transformation of polymeric materials under the simultaneous action of high pressure (up to tens of kbar), and shear deformation.
