Various approaches have been made by different workers to determine the role of water in the mantle or the lower crust. For example, Kuroda et al. [1] determined the water content of some hydrosilicate minerals under high pressure and high temperature conditions. The stability field of some hydro-silicate minerals was studied by Kushiro [2], Kushiro et al. [3], Lambert and Wyllie [4], Hariya et al. [5,6] and others. The investigations of the role of water on the magma genesis (Allen et al. [7], Kushiro [8], and Burnham and Davis [9]) and the hydrogen and oxygen isotope frac-tionation of hydrous minerals (Kokubo et al. [10], Sheppard and Epstein [11], and Kuroda et al. [12]) also provide valuable information as to the concentration of water in the upper mantle or the lower crust.
