Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Geophysical Monograph Series, Volume 101.

High pressure-tempertatur research is vital to understanding the formation and evolution of the Earth and planetary interiors. Recent advances in research techniques have enabled mineral physicists to simulate conditions prevailing throughout the Earth's interior. This volume presents new laboratory data as well as geophysical and geochemical field observations and their implications describing the nature and composition of the Earth and planetary interiors. These advances in state-of-the-art high pressure-temperature research and applications will interest mineral physicists, petrologists, geochemists, and planetologists.
