Experimental conditions and phase compositions of partial melting of nominally anhydrous model Martian mantle
We constrained the solidus of Lodders & Fegley (1997) model Martian composition with low bulk Mg# (molar MgO/(MgO+FeOT)×100 ~75) and high total alkali (Na2O+K2O=1.09 wt.%) concentration at 2 to 5 GPa by experiments. This dataset includes the experimental conditions and the composition of different phases present in each experiment.
