Abstract

This textbook treate every aspect of igneous rocks, including their occurrence and emplacement, phase relations, geochemistry, and isotopic composition. In addition, results of field and laboratory studies are brought together in an integrated approach to the subject. The origins of all the main magma types are discussed, with particular reference to their occurrence in present-day volcanic regions. Equal attention is given to plutonic rocks, including those such as peridotite and anorthosite which are not seen in active volcanoes. Many of the classic localities of igneous petrology are also described. This book is profusely illustrated with maps, tables and diagrams, and contains an extensive bibliography, making it not only a textbook for student but also a reference source for research workers
