Theriak-Domino: Tips and Tools

(probably worth what you pay for them)

If you made it here, you probably know what Theriak-Domino is, what it does, and why you want to use it. I won’t bother going into any of that. Here are some Theriak-Domino resources besides those listed above.

When I first started using Theriak-Domino, phase diagrams turned out to be pretty easy to make. However, extracting modal and phase compositional information from a P-T grid was harder. Even after figuring a few things out, with help, I needed some tools. These web pages present some of the things I’ve learned, and a couple of the more useful tools.

Other thermodynamic software

  • Perple_X, a lot like T-D, better in some ways, harder to use in others. Lots of help information around.
  • Thermocalc, very sophisticated, if you know what you’re doing.
  • Melts, for magmas, with somewhat different models available for different magma compositions.
