Volume 32 Of Reviews In Mineralogy Introduces The Basic Concepts Of Melt Physics And Relaxation Theory As Applied To Silicate Melts, Then To Describe The Current State Of Experimental And Computer Simulation Techniques For Exploring The Detailed Atomic Structure And Dynamic Processes Which Occur At High Temperature, And Finally To Consider The Relationships Between Melt Structure, Thermodynamic Properties And Rheology Within These Liquids These Fundamental Relations Serve To Bridge The Extrapolation From Often Highly Simplified Melt Compositions Studied In The Laboratory To The Multicomponent Systems Found In Nature This Volume Focuses On The Properties Of Simple Model Silicate Systems, Which Are Usually Volatile Free The Behavior Of Natural Magmas Has Been Summarized In A Previous Short Course Volume Nicholls And Russell, Editors, 1990 Reviews In Mineralogy, Vol 24 , And The Effect Of Volatiles On Magmatic Properties In Yet Another Carroll And Holloway, Editors, 1994 Vol 30.The Mineralogical Society Of America Sponsored A Short Course For Which This Was The Text At Stanford University December 9 And 10, 1995, Preceding The Fall Meeting Of The American Geophysical Union And MSA In San Fransisco, With About 100 Professionals And Graduate Students In Attendance.
