TitleDeformation of feldspar aggregate experiment(TEM)
DescriptionTEM thin section from experimentally deformed feldspar aggregate. It shows a high density of tangled dislocations on one side, which were developed in an original grain. The individial dislocation segments are straight, not curved, indicating that climb was very difficult. The rock cannot undergo steady state flow until the strain is weakened and there is 100% recrystallization.
