Summary:On the basis of available mineral kinetic data, some guidelines are presented for quantitative approaches to experimental kinetic studies. Proposals are made as to how the common variables that can affect mineral kinetics may be controlled in experiments, so that such data may be more realistically applied to natural situations. Kinetic data for the aragonite reverse= calcite transformation at approx 450°C and 1 bar-17 kbar are discussed. [R.A.H.]
