Basaltic Melt Density

(provided by Y. Zhang)


Density (kg/m3) = 2973 - 0.2290*T(K) + 0.1655*P(MPa) - 57.38*H2O(wt%). 

"The Equation is re-parameterized from the density model of Lange and Carmichael (1990, Reviews in Mineralogy, 24, 25-64) and Ochs and Lange (1999, Science, 283, 1314-1317) for Etna basaltic melt by R.A. Lange."
