Laboratory data for the physical minerals are critical in resolving many global geophysics. These experimental properties of rocks and fundamental problems of studies require careful and precise measurements under well-controlled and well-characterized conditions of pressure, temperature, oxygen fugacity, etc. Such experiments were the hallmark of the research career of Edward Schreiber. This volume is dedicated to his memory and contains papers which report state-of-the-art technological developments in the field of mineral and rock physics. Topics include papers on rocks and rock properties, acoustic studies of the elasticity and equation of state of minerals, diamond-anvil cell experiments, rheological investigations, and new advances in high-pressure calorimetry, diffusion, and pressure calibration techniques.
