Fig. 6

Stress—grain-size map for quartz at 1000 MPa pressure and 500 °C, showing strain-rate contours in sec−1, the boundary (red) between the dislocation creep and thin-film pressure solution fields, and the location of the Pelona Schist metacherts. Pressure solution flow law from Den Brok (1998), dislocation creep flow law from Hirth et al. (2001) assuming water activity of one, and piezometric line from Stipp and Tullis (2003), with correction from Holyoke and Kronenberg (2010)
