Item log A (MPa−n/s) n r Q (kJ/mol) V (cm3/mol)
UC −4.9 2.97 1.0 242. 0
LC 0.2 3.0 1.0 345. 38.

  1. Footnote: aThe parameters for the upper crust (UC), lower crust (LC), and upper mantle (UM) correspond to those for quartz, anorthite, and olivine from Rutter and Brodie (2004), Rybacki et al. (2006), and Hirth and Kohlstedt (2003), respectively.
