Summary

Providing enough background to be rigorous,without being exhaustive, it gives readers 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. Requires only a working knowledge of algebra, and makes extensive use of spreadsheets. Includes an accompanying diskette of programs and data files. This book offers unique, comprehensive, up-to-date coverage of both igneousand metamorphic petrologyin a single volume and provides the quantitative and technical background required to critically evaluate igneous and metamorphic phenomena.
