"Chapter to chapter consistency in style and approach is excellent."The text is an extremely useful teaching tool." Professor Calvin Miller, Vanderbilt University "This is going to be my favorite Petrology textbook. It is very well written and up-to-date. I would recommend it to anybody who is looking for a petrology text." Professor Michai Ducea, California Institute of TechnologyReseña del editor:
Igneous Petrology provides up-to-date, integrated, comprehensive coverage of physical and chemical facets of magmatic rocks and magma systems. Field relations and fabrics of rocks together with their mineralogical, chemical and isotopic compositions facilitate interpretation of rock origin. The dynamic evolution of magma systems is considered from thermodynamics and from their chemical, physical and kinetic properties. Sources of magmas and how they are generated and subsequently evolve are considered in the context of global tectonics. The textbook stresses petrologic processes while also providing thorough descriptions of rock products suitable for the undergraduate student.
