MR018:
Physics and chemistry of carbon in planetary interiors





Session ID#: 24329

Session Description:
Carbon is one of the most abundant elements in the universe; its chemical flexibility results in its existence in many forms in the deep Earth including fluids, as a volatile in magmas, in subducting slabs and the mantle, and as a candidate light element in Earth’s core. The storage and cycling of carbon in planetary interiors depends on the stability of carbon-bearing minerals and melts at high pressure and temperature. Recent advances are providing new insights into the novel physics and chemistry of native carbon phases, carbonate minerals, ices, clathrates, carbides, and phases containing trace carbon. Diamonds and their inclusions provide key information about the mineralogy of deep reservoirs and the deep carbon cycle through geological time. We welcome petrological, mineralogical, geochemical, experimental, and theoretical contributions which address our understanding of the physical and chemical behavior of carbon at extreme conditions.
