Giordano et al. / Earth and Planetary Science Letters 271 (2008) 123–134computational schemes were developed to model the effects of H 2 Oon the viscosity of single specific melt composition (Baker, 1996; Hessand Dingwell, 1996; Giordano et al., 2004a; Vetere et al., 2006). Thereare several models for melt viscosity that incorporate a non-ArrhenianT-dependence and span wide ranges of melt composition (e.g.,Giordano and Dingwell, 2003; Russell and Giordano, 2005; Giordanoet al., 2006). However, they do not incorporate the effects of dissolvedvolatiles (especially H 2 O and F). The sole exception is the modelpublished by Hui and Zhang (2007) which predicts melt viscosity as afunction of temperature and composition and is applicable to hydroussilicate melts. Currently, this is the only viscosity model for multicomponentsilicate melts that accounts for the effects of H 2 O.Here we present a multicomponent chemical model for predictingthe viscosity of naturally-occurring silicate melts based on experimentalmeasurements of viscosity at T(K) on melts of knowncomposition (Fig. 1) at atmospheric pressure (10 5 Pa). The model hasthe following attributes: i) it spans most of the compositional rangefound in naturally-occurring volcanic rocks, ii) it captures the effectsof 10 major and minor oxide components and the volatile componentsH 2 O and F, iii) it is computationally continuous across the entirecompositional and temperature spectrum of the database, iv) it iscapable of accommodating both strong (near-Arrhenian T-dependence)and fragile (non-Arrhenian T-dependence) behaviour of silicatemelts (e.g., Angell, 1985), and v) it reproduces observed relationshipsbetween melt composition and transport properties such as glasstransition temperature (T g ) and fragility (m) (Angell, 1985; Plazek andNgai, 1991) (see Section 5.2 for definition).We anticipate this model finding widespread use in the petrologicaland volcanological sciences because of these traits. In particular,the low number (i.e. 18) of model parameters should facilitate incorporationinto complex applications (e.g., volcanic eruption models)that involve dynamic changes in melt composition and for greaterstability when the model is extrapolated outside the compositionalrange of the experimental database.2. Experimental databaseFig. 1. Melt compositions used in calibration of model for silicate melt viscosity, includingvolatile-free (open circles) and volatile-enriched (H 2O and F 2O −1) melts. Melt compositionsplotted as: (A) wt.% SiO 2 vs. Na 2 O+K 2 O, (B) molar ratios of K/Na vs. Al/(Na+K), and (C) wt.%SiO 2 vs. total volatile content.The primary dataset, against which the model is calibrated, comprises1774 experimentally measured pairs of values of T(K) and log η on silicatemelts of known composition. Our database includes measurements frommany laboratories but most are from work in experimental labs from thepast 20 years; sources of data are available as supporting material in theAppendix. Most measurements derive from high-T concentric cylinderexperimentation (η~10 −1 to 10 5 Pa s) and from micropenetrationdilatometricor parallel plate techniques for low-T (η~10 8 to 10 14 Pa s). Byexploiting the relative differences in structural relaxation times scales andrates of crystallization and vesiculation at temperatures immediatelyabove glass transition temperatures, the micropenetration and theparallel plate techniques can be used for viscosity measurements onboth dry and hydrous silicate melts. The hydrous melts are synthesized athigh-T and high-P conditions using conventional piston cylinder orhydrothermal bombs techniques (Giordano et al., 2004a,b; Dingwell,2006; Vetere et al., 2006). The apparent gap in data between 10 5 Pa s and10 8 Pa s results from a conflict between the timescales of melt relaxation(i.e., measurement) and timescales of processes that modify the materialproperties (i.e., crystallization and vesiculation).The range of melt compositions in the database spans virtually allcommon terrestrial volcanic rocks: from basic to silicic, from subalkalineto peralkaline, and from metaluminous to peraluminous (Fig. 1).The total number of experiments used in this study is substantiallylarger than that used in previous analyses and represents virtually allpublished measurements of viscosity on multicomponent natural ornatural equivalent silicate melts. We have elected not to includedatasets from simple non-natural chemical systems (e.g., Russell andGiordano, 2005; Giordano and Russell, 2007).The database for anhydrous melt compositions includes 932measurements of viscosity on 58 melt compositions spanning a temperaturerange of 535–1705 °C (Fig. 2A). Measured values of viscosityare from 10 − 1 to 10 13.8 Pa s. The calibration dataset also includes 842measurements on volatile (H 2 O and F) enriched melts (Fig. 2B). Theseexperiments commonly use the anhydrous melts as a base compositionto which volatiles have been added. Including variations involatile content (Fig. 1C), the 842 experiments are performed on 140different melt compositions, and explore essentially the same range ofviscosity values (10 0.1 to 10 13.4 Pa s) but over a considerably lowerrange of experimental temperatures: 245–1580 °C (Fig. 2B).The multicomponent model is calibrated on melt compositionsspanning oxide contents (wt.%) of: SiO 2 (41–79), TiO 2 (0–3), Al 2 O 3(0–23), FeO Tot (0–12), MnO (0–0.3), MgO (0–32), CaO (0–26), Na 2 O(0–11), K 2 O (0.3–9), P 2 O 5 (0–1.2). Dissolved volatile contents vary fromabout 0 to 8 wt.% H 2 O and 0 to 4 wt.% F (Fig. 1C). The base compositions(e.g., anhydrous) of the volatile-enriched melts span nearly the same

Giordano et al. / Earth and Planetary Science Letters 271 (2008) 123–134125where A, B and C are adjustable parameters, including the preexponentialfactor, pseudo-activation energy, and the VFT-temperature,respectively. On the basis of theoretical and numerical arguments(Myuller, 1955; Eyring et al., 1982; Angell, 1985; Russell et al., 2002,2003) we assume A to be an unknown constant. This implies that thecompositional controls on viscosity reside only in B and C.3.1. The constant A conceptFig. 2. Summary of data used to calibrate VFT model for compositional dependence ofsilicate melt viscosity. Data shown as log η vs. 10,000/T(K) for (A) volatile-free, and(B) volatile-rich melts (Sources listed as supporting material in the Appendix). Notevertical axes are equivalent but horizontal axis for (B) has been extended to lowertemperatures.compositional range as the anhydrous dataset (Fig. 1A, B). In the presentanalysis the NBO/T parameter (number of non-bridging oxygens pertetrahedra), representing a first order approximation to the degree ofpolymerization of the melt, is calculated accordingly to Mysen (1988) byassuming that SiO 2 , TiO 2 , Al 2 O 3 , and Fe 2 O 3 are network formers. For thepurposes of NBO/T calculations only, total iron (FeO T ) was split equally(wt.%) between FeO and Fe 2 O 3 (Giordano and Dingwell, 2003; Giordanoet al., 2006); calculated values of NBO/T for all melts in the database rangefrom 0 to 1.8.3. Model optimizationThe experimental database comprises only viscosity measurementsthat are coupled to melts for which there are complete andaccurate compositions, including direct analysis of volatiles (e.g.,spectroscopic or volumentric). We use the oxide mol% as a chemicalbasis and treat all iron as FeO even though there is evidence that Fe 2 O 3and FeO play distinct roles in governing melt structure (Mysen, 1988)and that the redox state of very Fe-rich melts does measurablyinfluence viscosity (Dingwell, 1991). Our redox simplification here ispurely empirical, resulting from the fact that tests for modelimprovement, based on a redox factor, fail to produce an improvementof the fit. Fluorine is treated as mol% F 2 O − 1 (Giordano et al., 2004b).Temperature dependence of viscosity (η) is modelled by the VFTequation (Vogel, 1921; Fulcher, 1925):The parameter A is the value of log η (Pa s) at infinite temperatureand, thus, represents the high temperature limit to silicate melt viscosity(log η ∞ ). The assumption that A is constant for all melts (i.e., independentof composition) implies that all melts converge to a single, commonvalue of viscosity at high-T. The expectation is that at super-liquidustemperatures, all silicate melts will become highly dissociated liquidsregardless of their lower temperature structure and converge to lowerlimiting value of viscosity. The “constant A concept” is supported byobservations on many low-T glass-forming systems including polymermelts (e.g., polyisobutane), organic liquids (e.g., Salol and O-terphenyl)and even liquid elements (e.g., molten Se) (Angell, 1991; Scopigno et al.,2003). In these systems, experiments can be run at temperaturesthat are well above the corresponding glass transition temperatures(e.g., T g /T → 0) and, thus, can directly explore the high-T properties ofmelts. These experiments have shown that, at temperatures well aboveT g , both strong and fragile melts commonly converge to a commonviscosity (e.g., η T→∞ ~10 −5 Pa s; e.g., Eyring et al.,1982; Angell,1991,1995;Russell et al., 2003; Scopigno et al., 2003).The concept of a high-T limit to silicate melt viscosity (e.g., constant A)is also supported by considering the time scales of relaxation processes inmelts (Eyring et al., 1982; Angell, 1991, 1995; Richet and Bottinga, 1995;Russell et al., 2003; Scopigno et al., 2003 and reference therein). TheMaxwell relationship (τ=η 0 /G ∞ ) can be used to constrain the lower limitsto melt viscosity (η 0 ). The bulk shear modulus (G ∞ ) of the melt at infinitefrequency can be assigned an average value of ~10 10 Pa (Dingwell andWebb, 1989; Toplis, 1998). The relaxation time scale (τ) of the melt isdictated by the quasilattice vibration period (~10 −14 s) which representsthe time between successive assaults on the energy barriers to meltrearrangement (e.g., Angell, 1991; Toplis, 1998). Thus, the lowerlimiting value to viscosity (η 0 ) should approximate 10 − 4 Pa s.Allowing for some variation in these physical constants, would stillrestrict A to ±1 logunits and establish the high-T viscosity limits formelts at between 10 − 3.5 –10 − 5.5 Pa s (e.g., Angell, 1991; Toplis, 1998).3.2. Compositional dependenciesCompositional effects are ascribed to the parameters B and C byassuming that both parameters can be expressed as a linear ensembleof combinations of oxide components and a subordinate number ofmultiplicative oxide cross-terms:B ¼ X7i¼1C ¼ X6i¼1½b i M i Š þ X3 b 1j M1 1j M2 1jj¼1½c i N i Š þ ½c 11 ðN1 11 N2 11 ÞŠ ð3Þwhere Ms and Ns refer to the combinations of mol% oxides reported inTable 1 for B and C, respectively. Two terms involve logarithms of thevolatile contents. The 17 unknown coefficients (b i , b 1j , c i , c 11 ) definedin Eqs. (2) and (3) are suffice to compute the values of B and C for anyindividual melt composition.3.3.
