In-situ proton-microprobe analyses are presented for glasses, plagioclases, pyroxenes, olivines, and spinels in eleven samples from Sites 834-836, 839, and 841 (vitrophyric rhyolite), plus a Tongan dacite. Elements analyzed are Mn, Ni, Cu, Zn, Ga, Rb, Sr, Y, Zr, Pb, and Sn (in spinels only). The data are used to calculate two sets of partition coefficients, one set based on the ratio of element in mineral/element in coexisting glass. The second set of coefficients, thought to be more robust, is corrected by application of the Rayleigh fractionation equations, which requires additional use of modal data. Data are presented for phenocryst core-rim phases and microphenocryst-groundmass phases from a few samples.
Comparison with published coefficients reveals an overall consistency with those presented here, but with some notable anomalies. Examples are relatively high Zr values for pyroxenes and abnormally low Mn values in olivines and clinopyroxenes from Site 839 lavas. Some anomalies may reflect kinetic effects, but interpretation of the coefficients is complicated, especially in olivines from Sites 836 and 839, by possible crystal-liquid disequilibrium resulting from mixing processes.
