Abstract

Rates of olivine dissolution in synthetic lunar basalt 77115 and a silica-enriched 77115 composition (Sil-77115) at superliquidus temperatures have been determined. Dissolution-rate data have been applied to the problem of the thermal history of fragment-laden impact-melt rocks of the lunar highlands. Textural and chemical criteria are discussed for the recognition of olivine resorption (and growth) phenomena in igneous rocks. -J.A.Z.
