Igneous and metamorphic petrology has over the last twenty yearsexpanded rapidly into a broad, multifaceted and increasinglyquantitative science. Advances in geochemistry, geochronology, andgeophysics, as well as the appearance of new analytical tools, haveall contributed to new ways of thinking about the origin andevolution of magmas, and the processes driving metamorphism.
This book is designed to give students a balanced andcomprehensive coverage of these new advances, as well as a firmgrounding in the classical aspects of igneous and metamorphicpetrology. The emphasis throughout is on the processes controllingpetrogenesis, but care is taken to present the importantdescriptive information so crucial to interpretation.
One of the most up-to-date synthesis of igneous and metamorphicpetrology available.
Emphasis throughout on latest experimental and fielddata.
Igneous and metamorphic sections can be used independently ifnecessary. read more
