How partial melting helps to explain igneous rocks

Comparison of a model with reality to develop understanding of the partial melting process; 'Partial melting model and real rock' - an ELI+ activity.


This ELI is a consolidation exercise on partial melting, to ensure that students understand how a model mirrors processes in real rocks. The partial melting process can be directly linked to the key rock-forming minerals by reference to Bowen’s Reaction Series, which is explained in the activity.
