Forsterite, the most abundant mineral in meteorites, forms at high temperatures often associated with nebular processes. It evaporates congruently, and its equilibrium evaporation is rather well understood [e.g.]. For these reasons, in part, many recent studies have focused on the more difficult kinetics of the free (Langmuir or nonequilibrium) evaporation of this mineral.
