Glass deformation experiments under hydrothermal conditions


Publication Date


Proctor, B.P., and Lockner, D.A., 2017, Glass deformation experiments under hydrothermal conditions: U.S. Geological Survey data release,


Six time-series data files are included in this release. The files contain mechanical data (described in metadata file below) collected during deformation experiments performed on obsidian gouge. A detailed description of the experiments along with the data reduction procedures are provided in the published manuscript: Proctor, B.P., Lockner, D.A., Lowenstern, J.B., and Beeler, N.M., 2017, Conversion of Wet Glass to Melt at Lower Seismogenic Zone Conditions: Implications for Pseudotachylyte Creep: Geophysical Research Letters, v. 44, no. 20, p. 10248–10255,
