Processes in Geophysics Studied by Mössbauer Spectroscopy

  • Örn Helgason
Conference paper

Abstract

Mössbauer spectroscopy has been appreciated in geoscience as a powerful tool to study magnetic and structural properties of a wide range of minerals and rocks. In this presentation the application of Mössbauer spectroscopy in different geophysical processes such as tracing the development of magma during volcanic eruptions and phase transitions of magnetic minerals due to thermal impact of dikes in earlier lava formation or hydrothermal alteration will be discussed.

Key words

Mössbauer spectroscopy mantle-derived magma oxidation state rock magnetism titanomagnetite geothermal alteration
