The high-pressure physical behavior of minerals and rocks is crucial in exploring the transport process and its surface response of deep Earth interior’s material at high temperature and high-pressure conditions. In the long history of formation and evolution for Earth and Planet, most of Earth materials are in a state of high-temperature and high-pressure environments. High-temperature and high-pressure experimental and theoretical calculations modelings are the most efficient methods in disclosing the deep understandings for the cause and origin of crust, mantle and core for the Earth and other terrestrial Planet. And thus, in order to further elucidate the complex physiochemical process in the deep interior of Earth and other terrestrial Planet, the high-pressure physical behavior of minerals and rocks plays a vital role among available geophysical methods. Some important high-pressure physical behavior for many physical parameters of minerals and rocks including electrical conductivity, elasticity, equation of state, rheology, deformation, et al. have been performed under controlled temperature, pressure, oxygen fugacity, water content and chemical composition in the recent several years.
High-temperature and high-pressure experimental and theoretical calculations modelings for minerals and rocks have long been an essential pathway to understanding high-pressure physical behavior. Notably, in order to efficiently model the material composition and transport conduction of deep interior for the Earth and other terrestrial Planet, some high-pressure physical parameter measurements and their theoretical modelings (e.g. electrical conductivity, elasticity, equation of state, rheology, deformation, et al.) have been successfully made great progress in the recent years. Almost all of minerals and rocks for the cycle layer in the deep interior Earth (crust, mantle and core) are well concerned. Some in-situ high-pressure experimental techniques and measurement methods, such as autoclave, piston-cylinder, multi-anvil press and diamond anvil cell have been advanced and wide adopted in different geological tectonic conditions. Besides, some new techniques including high-pressure spectroscopy (infrared, Raman), super-computer modeling, synchrotron X-ray diffraction et al. are employed and widespread applied to the deep material science of the Earth interior. All of them greatly make it advance for the high-pressure physical behavior of minerals and rocks. Except for the high-pressure physical behavior of minerals and rocks, some newest progress in the field of mineralogy, petrology and geochemistry are also paid attention in this Research Topic. Therefore, all of these researches will be moving forward the research of solid Earth geophysics and geochemistry.

This Research Topic aims to explore the high-pressure physical behavior of minerals and rocks, Mineralogy, Petrology and Geochemistry. All of these high-pressure physical behaviors for minerals and rocks including in-situ experimental measurements of high-pressure physical parameters, high-pressure spectroscopy characterizations and theoretical calculations are included at high-pressure conditions, as well as some mainstream in the solid geophysics and geochemistry including mineralogy, petrology and geochemistry in this section.
