Abstract

Considerable geophysical interest has focused on the mechanical properties of the orthorhombic mineral olivine, because continental drift is controlled by the high-temperature creep of olivine-rich rocks deep in the earth. The paper reports on single crystal, steady-state creep experiments, conducted at room pressure and 1300-1650 degree C, which combine with previously reported high-pressure deformation experiments to form a consistent picture of the creep properties of olivine over the differential stress range 50-15,000 bars and the temperature interval 725-1650 degree C.
