9780321681324: Principles of 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.

Typical texts on igneous and metamorphic petrology are geared to either advanced or novice petrology students. This unique text offers 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 students at all levels can understand. 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.

From the Back Cover:

With enough background to be rigorous, yet not exhaustive, this book offers good preparation in the techniques of modern petrology; a clear and organized review of the classification, textures, and approach to petrologic study; and applies these concepts to the real occurrences of the rocks themselves. The goal throughout is for readers 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. A survey of actual occurrences of igneous and metamorphic rocks, and processes that produce them, is provided. This section is often greatly condensed in most other books, but it is the most interesting and dynamic aspect of petrology.
Some Fundamental Concepts ; Classification and Nomenclature of Igneous Rocks; Textures of Igneous Rocks; Igneous Structures and Field Relationships; An Introduction to Thermodynamics; The Phase Rule and One- and Two-Component Systems; Systems with More than Two Components; Chemical Petrology I: Major and Minor Elements; Chemical Petrology II: Trace Elements and Isotopes; Generation of Basaltic Magmas; Magma Diversity; Layered Mafic Intrusions; Mid-Ocean Ridge Volcanism; Oceanic Intraplate Volcanism; Continental Flood Basalts; Subduction-Related Igneous Activity Part I: Island Arcs; Subduction-Related Igneous Activity Part II: Continental Arcs; Granitoid Rocks; Continental Alkaline Magmatism; Anorthosites; An Introduction to Metamorphism; A Classification of Metamorphic Rocks; Structures and Textures of Metamorphic Rocks; Stable Mineral Assemblages in Metamorphic Rocks; Metamorphic Facies and Metamorphosed Mafic Rocks; Metamorphic Reactions; Thermodynamics of Metamorphic Reactions; Metamorphism of Pelitic Sediments; Metamorphism of Calcareous and Ultramafic Rocks; Metamorphic Fluids, Mass Transport and Metasomatism; Units and Constants; Abbreviations and Acronyms; The CIPW Norm.

A useful reference for anyone who wants to learn more about petrology.

About the Author:

John D. Winter did his undergraduate work in geology at the University of Illinois at Urbana, and earned his M.S. and Ph.D. at the University of Washington in Seattle. Now Professor of Geology at Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington, his principal fields of interest are in metamorphic petrology, mineralogy and crystallography, and geochemistry. He has spent several summers in Greenland, a summer in Labrador, and another in Norway, where he studied processes that take place during the formation and subsequent development of the ancient deep continental crust. He is also working on contact metamorphism in the Wallowa Mountains of NE Oregon. Briefly, he also worked as an exploration geologist in New Guinea.
 
Professor Winter teaches Mineralogy, Igneous and Metamorphic Petrology, Introductory Geology, Environmental Geology, and Geochemistry. Outside the classroom, his interests include travel, mountaineering, hiking, mountain biking, and telemark skiing.
