From: An in situ experimental study of Zr4+ transport capacity of water-rich fluids in the temperature and pressure range of the deep crust and upper mantle

Fig. 5

Zr concentration in fluids as a function of temperature and pressure for the systems indicated. Average pressure is that calculated from the regression line in Fig. 2. For actual pressure, see Table 1. Only two data points (at 725 and 800 °C) are shown for fluids in the ZrO2-SiO2-H2O system because at a lower temperature (and pressure) Raman signals that could be assigned to vibrations in Zr-bearing complexes in the fluid were not detected above background noise. Horizontal error bars represent calculated pressure uncertainty (±110 MPa; see text)
