Determination of fluid inclusions compositions in the H2O-NaCl-CaCl2 system

Download Excel Spreedsheet

Description

This Microsoft Excel spreadsheet implements the model of Steele-MacInnis et al. (2011) to allow determination of fluid inclusion compositions in the H2O-NaCl-CaCl2 system using either combination of measured melting temperatures (Tm) or Tm plus microanalytical compositional data (XNaCl) (e.g., from LA-ICPMS). The model is applicable for fluid inclusions in which either ice, hydrohalite, halite or antarcticite (or other CaCl2 hydrate) is the last solid phase to melt.

Description

This is a compliled Fortran program for determination of fluid inclusion compositions in the H2O-NaCl-KCl system based on microthermometric data for ice, hydrohalite, halite and/or sylvite. The program is described in detail in:
