Igneous and Metamorphic Petrology 2e

December 2002, ©2002, Wiley-Blackwell
Igneous and Metamorphic Petrology 2e (EHEP002673) cover image
Igneous and metamorphic petrology has over the last twenty years expanded rapidly into a broad, multifaceted and increasingly quantitative science. Advances in geochemistry, geochronology, and geophysics, as well as the appearance of new analytical tools, have all contributed to new ways of thinking about the origin and evolution of magmas, and the processes driving metamorphism.

This book is designed to give students a balanced and comprehensive coverage of these new advances, as well as a firm grounding in the classical aspects of igneous and metamorphic petrology. The emphasis throughout is on the processes controlling petrogenesis, but care is taken to present the important descriptive information so crucial to interpretation.


  • One of the most up-to-date synthesis of igneous and metamorphic petrology available.
  • Emphasis throughout on latest experimental and field data.
  • Igneous and metamorphic sections can be used independently if necessary.
