Reverse Modelling in R

Part of the Springer Geochemistry book series (SPRIGEO)


This chapter contains two solved problems on reverse modelling of the behaviour of trace elements using R (see Chap. 12 for principles). One concerns fractionation of tonalitic magma (given the compositions of primitive and fractionated melt and partition coefficients of the principal mineral phases). The other is a reverse problem of garnet lherzolite melting, yielding a basaltic melt
