    Description

    Principles Of Igneous And Metamorphic Petrology provides the quantitative and technical background required to critically evaluate igneous and metamorphic phenomena in a way that students at any level can understand and apply to practical situations.

    Summary Of The Book

    Principles Of Igneous And Metamorphic Petrology is considered an essential companion for a student of geology. Featuring an approach in which techniques are first presented and then applied to assess a field area, readers of this book will be well-equipped to expand the techniques according to the field examples.

    The theory has been presented in an accessible manner, and concentrates on the processes and principles involved in the generation of igneous and metamorphic matter. Such a treatment will help students develop a deeper understanding of the physical processes involved and provide them with skills that will prove valuable beyond the classroom.

    Principles Of Igneous And Metamorphic Petrology features a comprehensive section on petrogenesis, particularly igneous petrogenesis, covering important associations such as mid-ocean ridge processes, mid-ocean islands, island and continental arcs, granitoid rocks, and continental alkaline associations.

    Requiring only a working knowledge of algebra and calculus, the book does not place undue emphasis on knowledge of higher mathematics, chemistry, or physics. Chemical and physical principles are discussed at a level that is accessible and comprehensible.
    Finally, the book is armed with solved examples, problems, and computer-related problems.

    About the Author

    John D. Winter is Professor of Geology at Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington. His principal fields of interest are metamorphic petrology, mineralogy, crystallography, and geochemistry.

    Winter’s fieldwork has taken him to Greenland, Labrador, and Norway, where he studied the formation and development of the ancient deep continental crust.

    He 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.

    Winter lives in the Blue Mountains outside Walla Walla, Washington, with his wife and their two pets.

    Worth!

    Thanks to Flipkart for its fast and well packaged delivery as always it has been.
    The book is really awesome for UG as well as PG study. Igneous petrology has been very well explained with all processes well illustrated. Very easy to understand. Just as you start reading, you cant close the book until you finish the chapter that you are reading! (something like a novel)

    Metamorphic Petrology has been explained to a good extent. It would have been better if it was more.

    Good Book on Igneous & Metamorphic Petrology

    Given the price of the book & also otherwise it is a must read. Although Igneous petrology have been described in much more detail than required. Metamorphic petrology would have been much better with some more explanation. Still a very good book and the great thing is that it is an economy edition.
