Summary:Ion imaging by SIMS (ion microprobe) techniques provides a novel approach to the identification of mechanisms of fluid-mineral interaction during hydrothermal experiments. There are two different methods of forming an ion image of the sample surface in the Cameca ims-4f: scanning ion image, and resistive anode encoder. Application of both systems to the study of such interactions is reviewed in which fluid or solid phases have been labelled with 18O-enriched isotopic tracers. These include studies of micropermeability and microporosity in feldspars, solid- state diffusion vs solution-reprecipitation, textural equilibration mechanisms, and O isotope exchange in silicate- carbonate systems.
