9780132403429: An Introduction to Igneous and Metamorphic Petrology

For a combined, one-semester, junior/senior-level course in Igneous and Metamorphic Petrology. Also useful for programs that teach Igneous Petrology and Metamorphic Petrology separately. Unlike other texts on igneous and metamorphic petrology--which are geared to either advanced or novice petrology students--this text offers unique, comprehensive, up-to-date coverage of both igneous and metamorphic petrology in a single volume and provides the quantitative and technical background required to critically evaluate igneous and metamorphic phenomena in a way that compels and encourages the more quantitatively-oriented students without leaving the others frustrated and dismayed. Providing enough background to be rigorous, without being exhaustive, it gives students good preparation in the techniques of modern petrology; a clear and organized review of the classification, textures, and approach to petrologic study; and then applies these concepts to the real occurrences of the rocks themselves. The text limits the theory to the extent that students can practice it on real occurrences--without such excessive detail that the course becomes more like chemistry than geology.The goal throughout is for students to be able to apply the techniques--and enjoy the insights of the results--rather than tinker with theory and develop everything from first principles.
