The various contributions made in this field in the last two decades are critically reviewed. The authors present some of their results for the first time. The crystal-chemical details, which are necessary to understand the atomic forces governing Fe2+-Mg distribution in ferromagnesian silicates, as well as the experimental techniques commonly used to determine Fe2+-Mg distribution, are reviewed in Part I. Part II deals with the thermodynamics and kinetics of Fe2+-Mg order-disorder and their application to geological problems.-C.N.
