Partial Melt Distributions from Inversion of Rare Earth

The rare earth concentrations in mare basalts require melt fractions of up to 7% in the spinel peridotite stability field, and can be generated by adiabatic upwelling of mantle whose potential temperature is 1300C beneath a mechanical boundary layer that is 150 km thick.

Rare Earth Elements from Coal. Trace amounts are measured in microscopic concentrations of 100 parts per million or less. However, small amounts can be concentrated by large-scale mining and preparation. In fact, a recent study suggests that Appalachian coal bed refuse may contain one of the largest REE resources in the United States (Taggart and others, 2016).
