Contributor(s): Ague, Jay J.
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: Cambridge, UK ; New York : Cambridge University Press, 2009Edition: 2nd ed.Description: xviii, 667 p. : ill., maps, plans ; 29 cm.ISBN: 9780521880060; 0521880068.Subject(s): Volkanik kayalar | Başkalaşım kayaları | Petroloji | Igneous rocks | Metamorphic rocks | PetrologyDDC classification: 552.1
Contents:
Introduction -- Physical properties of magma -- Intrusion of magma -- Forms of igneous bodies -- Cooling of igneous bodies and other diffusion processes -- Classification of igneous rocks -- Introduction to thermodynamics -- Free energy and phase equilibria -- Thermodynamics of solutions -- Phase equilibria in igneous systems -- Effects of volatiles on melt equilibria -- Crystal growth -- Isotope geochemistry related to petrology -- Magmatic processes -- Igneous rock associations -- Metamorphism and metamorphic facies -- Deformation and textures of metamorphic rocks -- Graphical analysis of metamorphic mineral assemblages -- Geothermometry, geobarometry, and mineral reactions among solid solutions -- Mineral reactions involving H2O and CO2 -- Material transport during metamorphism -- Pressure-temperature-time paths and heat transfer during metamorphism -- Origin of rocks.
Review: "This textbook provides a basic understanding of the formative processes of igneous and metamorphic rock through quantitative applications of simple physical and chemical principles. 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. With over 350 illustrations, this revised edition contains valuable new material on the structure of the Earth's mantle and core, the properties and behaviour of magmas, recent results from satellite imaging, and more."--BOOK JACKET.
