Title: Volume Relations in Open-Space Replacements

Author(s): G. E. Anderson (2), C. A. Merritt (3)


Metasomatism of the igneous and the metamorphic types takes place volume for volume, as has been proved by Lindgren and others. This concept has not been applied to "open-space" replacement (including hydration), which commonly takes place near the earth's surface under normal temperature and pressure. The writers hold that this concept is also applicable to the latter reactions and present evidence in support of this contention.
