Abstract

Thermal diffusivity and thermal conductivity of serpentine (antigorite) were measured up to 8.5GPa and 800K in the Kawai-type high-pressure apparatus. Antigorite has thermal diffusivity of 0.90×10-6m2s-1 and thermal conductivity of 2.7Wm-1K-1 at 5GPa and 300K, which are much lower than those of olivine. Furthermore, the pressure derivatives of thermal diffusivity and thermal conductivity are significantly smaller than those of olivine. The thermal properties of antigorite obtained in the present study imply existence of a thermal insulating layer in subduction zones. From the simultaneous measurement of both thermal diffusivity and thermal conductivity the heat capacity of antigorite was determined to be ≈1×103Jkg-1K-1, and increased to ≈1.5×103Jkg-1K-1 at ≈800K under high pressure. The heat capacity was nearly independent of pressure, which indicates nearly temperature-independent thermal expansivity of antigorite. Its characteristics also were hypothesized in terms of lattice dynamics of hydrous minerals involving hydrogen atoms and hydroxyl groups.
