From: Water distribution in quartz schists of the Sanbagawa Metamorphic Belt, Japan: infrared spectroscopic mapping and comparison of the calibrations proposed for determining water contents

Fig. 8

IR mapping result for albite–biotite zone specimen No. 7-35, which shows aligned fluid inclusions. a Optical photomicrograph, plane-polarized light. b Cross-polarized light. Cracks are also seen. The aligned fluid inclusions in the quartz are indicated by arrows. The IR mapped areas are shown by squares. c Water distributions using the calibration of Paterson (1982). Numbers represent raw IR spectra in d. Aligned fluid inclusions show relatively high values (lines 3 and 4)
