Abstract. Rheological properties of olivine and its high pressure polymorphs, both dry and hydrous, have been studied by monitoring x-ray diffraction peak broadening as a function of pressure, temperature and time. The measurements were carried out up to a pressure of 10 GPa and a temperature of 600øC for olivine and wadsleyite, and a pressure of 20 GPa and a temperature of 1000øC for ringwoodite. The observations indicate that olivine is much weaker than the other two minerals for this range of conditions, a…
