9780198705611: Granites: Petrology, Structure, Geological Setting, and Metallogeny

Granites are emblematic rocks developed from a magma that crystallized in the Earth's crust. They ultimately outcrop at the surface of every continent.

This book - translated, edited, and updated from the original French edition Petrologie des Granites published by Vuibert in 2011 - gives a modern presentation of granitic rocks, or granites, from magma genesis to their emplacement into the crust and their crystallization. Mineralogical, petrological, physical, and economical aspects are developed in a succession of 14 chapters. Special 'info boxes' discuss topics for those wishing to deepen their knowledge of the subject. Also included is a glossary, a comprehensive bibliography, as well as descriptions of modern techniques.

Granites are considered in their geological spatial and temporal frame, in relation with Plate Tectonics and Earth History, and assisted by a large number of high quality illustrations.

Review:


"[A] welcome addition to the English-language literature on geology. Recommended." --CHOICE


"The anticipated audience is expected to be broad-based, appealing to both an academic and general science readership. The book will be a valuable reference work for advanced undergraduate Earth Science courses in igneous geology, mineralogy and geochemistry and economic / ore geology. The authors, translator and publishers are to be congratulated on producing a welcome, authoritative and insightful contribution to the literature on granite. A recommended (and affordable) read!" --eoScientist
