Forward Modelling in R
This chapter contains five solved exercises on forward modelling of the behaviour of major elements using R (see Chap. 6 for principles). These include: fractional crystallization of a single mineral and of a more complex cumulate assemblage, partial melting of a mantle peridotite and origin of basaltic magmas, and calculation of a bulk rock composition given the proportions and chemistries of its constituent minerals.
