Thermodynamics and P-T

Today Updates Lecture outline: ? Gibbs free energy Reactions
P-T estimates

Index minerals make zones, but COMPOSITION DEPENDENT Change in composition, means change in minerals occurring Chlorite zone. Biotite zone. Garnet zone. Staurolite zone. Kyanite zone. Sillimanite zone. => Facies is better to compare different metamorphic rocks Chlorite Biotite Cordierite Andalusite Sillimanite

High Strain Rocks

High Strain Rocks Rock types to expect with depth/deformation
A simple and easy to use classification: Terminology for high-strain shear-zone related rocks proposed by Wise et al. (1984) Fault-related rocks: Suggestions for terminology. Geology, 12,

Why do we care about metamorphic rocks?

Natural systems tend toward states of minimum energy
Thermodynamics Consider a chemical system in terms of energy Natural systems tend toward states of minimum energy (and maximum entropy)

Energy States Unstable: falling or rolling
Stable: at rest in lowest energy state Metastable: in low-energy perch Figure 5-1. Stability states. Winter (2001) An Introduction to Igneous and Metamorphic Petrology. Prentice Hall.

Gibbs Free Energy Gibbs free energy for 1 phase: G = H - TS
Gibbs free energy is used to describe chemical energy Gibbs free energy for 1 phase: G = H - TS Where: G = Gibbs Free Energy H = Enthalpy (heat content) T = Temperature in Kelvins S = Entropy (can think of as randomness)

Change in Gibbs f.e. in reaction
DG for a reaction of the type: 2 A B = C + 4 D DG = S (n G)products - S(n G)reactants = GC + 4GD - 2GA - 3GB What side of the reaction is more stable?

Gibbs f.e. @ different PT  
From 2nd law of thermodynamics, can derive for other PT: dG = VdP - SdT (Spear, Ch 6) where V = volume and S = entropy (both molar) We can use this equation to calculate G for any phase at any T and P by integrating P T G - G =  2 VdP -  2 SdT T P T P 2 2 1 1 P T 1 1

For a reaction: Now consider a reaction, we can then use the equation:
dDG = DVdP - DSdT (ignoring DX) DG for any reaction = 0 at equilibrium

Initial roundup So: G measures relative chemical stability
Get G from H and S measurements Expand to other PT mathematically Need change in V, S: dV/dP is the coefficient of isothermal compressibility dS/dT is the heat capacity (Cp)

Result of changing composition
Effect of adding Ca to “albite = jadeite + quartz” DGT, P = DGoT, P + RTlnK DGoT, P = equilibrium (= 0 at some P and T) Changing Ca => RTlnK We could assume ideal solution and K Jd Pyx SiO Q Ab Plag = X 2 All coefficients = 1

Chemical potential -  = K RT ln K term and chemical potential:
At constant P&T: G = ∑ *n ( = chem. pot., n = moles)  for component I (think phase diagrams) in phase A is: i,A = i,o + RT ln ai,a (a = activity, i,o =  STP) K C c D d A a B b = General case: aA + bB = cC + dD RTlnK = RTln{(aC*aD)/(aA*aB)}

Compositional variations
Effect of adding Ca to albite = jadeite + quartz DGP, T = DGoP, T + RTlnK numbers are values for K In summary, we can use thermodynamics to calculate equilibrium for mixtures of minerals, gases, and liquids, either pure or impure at a wide range of pressures and temperatures We can also use the principles qualitatively to assess the effects of P, T, and X on equilibrium Figure P-T phase diagram for the reaction Jadeite + Quartz = Albite for various values of K. The equilibrium curve for K = 1.0 is the reaction for pure end-member minerals (Figure 27-1). Data from SUPCRT (Helgeson et al., 1978).

Geothermobarometry Use measured distribution of elements in coexisting phases from experiments at known P and T to estimate P and T of equilibrium in natural samples

Geothermobarometry The Garnet - Biotite geothermometer

Geothermobarometry The GASP geobarometer
Figure P-T phase diagram showing the experimental results of Koziol and Newton (1988), and the equilibrium curve for reaction (27-37). Open triangles indicate runs in which An grew, closed triangles indicate runs in which Grs + Ky + Qtz grew, and half-filled triangles indicate no significant reaction. The univariant equilibrium curve is a best-fit regression of the data brackets. The line at 650oC is Koziol and Newton’s estimate of the reaction location based on reactions involving zoisite. The shaded area is the uncertainty envelope. After Koziol and Newton (1988) Amer. Mineral., 73, From 3rd equation can extract DH from slope (know P and DV) and DS from intercept
