Abstract:

Midinfrared 6 to 40 micrometers spectra of igneous rocks and rock-forming minerals are presented. Molecular vibration bands are identified, and the extent of spectral scatter among different samples of the same rock type is illustrated. Conclusions are drawn concerning the extent to which midinfrared spectral behavior of igneous rocks is diagnostic of composition.
