"CrustMaker"

building deep crust composition models

 

 

What is this program? A tool for constructing deep crustal compositional models. CrustMaker uses seismic velocities, geochemical data, and thermodynamic calculations to predict crustal composition at middle and lower crustal depths and temperatures. It can be used on the regional scale at high resolution, or global scale with a simplified dataset.
