12.718 Kinetics and Mass Transport


Class Info

Offers a broad overview of various kinetic and transport processes in geology, including volume and grain boundary solid-state diffusion, defects in minerals, rates of mineral reaction and transformation, crystal nucleation and growth, advective transport in porous media and partially molten aggregates, and percolation theory. Emphasis on processes in crystalline rocks. Covers theoretical, phenomenological, and experimental constraints, with a consistent application to "real-world" settings and actual case histories.

This class has no prerequisites.

12.718 will be offered this semester (Fall 2017). It is instructed by M. Behn and G. Gaetani (WHOI).

This class counts for a total of 9 credits.
