Modal calculations, Fractional crystallization model, Excel spreadsheet
PetroMode is an Excel spreadsheet that can be used to (1) calculate the modal composition of a rock given the elemental composition of the rock and (2) calculate the major element mass balance to test the derivation of a daughter liquid by removal of minerals from a parent liquid (fractional crystallization).
