Empirical calibration of net-transfer and exchange equilibria as geological thermobarometers involves the use of input parameters, such as independent estimates of P and T, which can have large uncertainties. A calibration method is presented which propagates these uncertainties into uncertainties in reaction enthalpy and entropy. The results offer a means of testing the relative precision of various empirical and experimental thermobarometers. -J.A.Z.
