Changrong He, Li Luo, Quan-Ming Hao and Yongsheng Zhou Velocity-weakening behavior of plagioclase and pyroxene gouges and stabilizing effect of small amounts of quartz under hydrothermal conditions Journal of Geophysical Research: Solid Earth 118

Article first published online: 30 JUL 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/jgrb.50280

Key Points

  • Quartz-free gabbroic gouges show velocity weakening for temperature above 400C
  • Small-amounts of quartz stabilize velocity weakening of Pl-Px mixture
  • Small characteristic slip distance is the reason of unstable oscillatory slips
