Liquidus phase relations in hydrous and anhydrous silicate and aluminosilicate systems. (A) Pyroxene/olivine liquidus boundary at 2 GPa in the Mg2SiO4-CaMgSi2O6-SiO2 system with and without H2O from Kushiro (1969). (B) Evolution of feldspar/quartz liquidus boundaries in the NaAlSi3O8-KalSi3O8-SiO2 system with increasing H2O pressure compared with anhydrous 0.1 MPa liquidus boundaries H2O (data from Tuttle and Bowen 1958; Luth et al. 1964).
