For a combined, one-semester, junior/senior-level course in Igneous and Metamorphic Petrology. Also useful for programs that teach Igneous Petrology and Metamorphic Petrology.
Typical texts on igneous and metamorphic petrology are geared to either advanced or novice petrology students. This unique text offers comprehensive, up-to-date coverage of both igneous and metamorphic petrology in a single volumeâ and provides the quantitative and technical background required to critically evaluate igneous and metamorphic phenomena in a way that students at all levels can understand. The goal throughout is for students to be able to apply the techniquesâ and enjoy the insights of the resultsâ rather than tinker with theory and develop everything from first principles.
John D. Winter did his undergraduate work in geology at the University of Illinois at Urbana, and earned his M.S. and Ph.D. at the University of Washington in Seattle. Now Professor of Geology at Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington, his principal fields of interest are in metamorphic petrology, mineralogy and crystallography, and geochemistry. He has spent several summers in Greenland, a summer in Labrador, and another in Norway, where he studied processes that take place during the formation and subsequent development of the ancient deep continental crust. He is also working on contact metamorphism in the Wallowa Mountains of NE Oregon. Briefly, he also worked as an exploration geologist in New Guinea.
Professor Winter teaches Mineralogy, Igneous and Metamorphic Petrology, Introductory Geology, Environmental Geology, and Geochemistry. Outside the classroom, his interests include travel, mountaineering, hiking, mountain biking, and telemark skiing.
