PRINCIPLES OF IGNEOUS AND METAMORPHIC PETROLOGY PHILPOTTS PDF

It is helpful in consequence to advise geology students that the study of thin sections is not only concerned with the identification of their mineral content. To do so would mean they could not see the wood for the trees. Accurate identification of the indi vidual minerals that form rocks is fundamental in their description but the analysis of their textures and habits is also essential. Study of textural features enforces constraints upon the inter pretation of the origin and history of a rock. The analysis of micro textures cannot and should never be an aim in itself, out must be sup ported by qualitative and quantitative correlations with theories of petrogenesis.

This concise, accessible, market-leading textbook brings together the wide-ranging fundamentals students need to understand rocks and minerals, and shows them how they relate to the broader Earth, materials and environmental sciences. Designed spe The end-of-chapter problems for students are excellent. It will definitely be the best undergraduate petrology text when it appears on the shelf. You have a winner.

Of great utility are the problems at the end of each chapter This is a fantastic book. My high expectations were not disappointed. The content is rigorous, in-depth and up-to-date.

Those who decide to study it, will get a firm foundation on which they may build future research. I highly recommend this textbook and really regret that I had not the chance to use it during my own university education. He has worked on Precambrian massif type anorthosites, pseudotachylites, alkaline rocks, liquid immiscibility in Fe-Ti oxide systems and in tholeiitic magmas.

Principles of 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 book encourages a deeper comprehension of the subject by explaining the petrologic principles rather than simply presenting the student with petrologic facts and terminology. Assuming knowledge of only introductory college-level courses in physics, chemistry, and calculus, it lucidly outlines mathematical derivations fully and at an elementary level, and is ideal for intermediate and advanced courses in igneous and metamorphic petrology. The end-of-chapter quantitative problem sets facilitate student learning by working through simple applications. They also introduce several widely-used thermodynamic software programs for calculating igneous and metamorphic phase equilibria and image analysis software.

He has worked on Precambrian massif type anorthosites, pseudotachylites, alkaline rocks, liquid immiscibility in Fe—Ti oxide systems and in tholeiitic magmas.
