An important distinction should be made between the concept of a P-T pseudosection and the prominently used P-T projection (petrogenetic grid). Lines on a P-T projection represent possible chemical reactions a particular rock may experience. However, all the reactions on a P-T projection are never experienced by a single bulk rock composition; only a subset of the possible reactions are experienced. In contrast, lines on a P-T pseudosection represent the P-T conditions at which the mode of a particular phase goes to zero for a specified bulk composition, and rarely represent any single reaction which appears on a simplified petrogenetic grid. If the bulk composition of a rock changes, than the positions of mode = 0 lines on a pseudosection will change, but the positions of reactions on a petrogenetic grid will not change. Therefore, pseudosections are a useful tool for showing the on a pseudosection will change, but the positions of reactions on a petrogenetic grid will not change....
