A concise introductory textbook on the petrology of igneous and metamorphic rocks for one-semester courses. Topics are organized around the types of rocks to expect in tectonic environments, rather than around rock classifications. Application boxes engage students by showing how petrology connects to wider aspects of geology. Includes end-of-chapter exercises.

Críticas:

'An authoritative and contemporary petrology textbook ideal for today's undergraduate student ... distils the essence of igneous and metamorphic petrology.' Joshua Schwartz, California State University

'... a streamlined view of igneous and metamorphic petrology that is most appropriate for a one-semester undergraduate-level course.' Jeffrey M. Byrnes, Oklahoma State University

'... a soon to be very popular igneous and metamorphic petrology textbook ... I look forward to adopting this book!' Lawford Anderson, Boston University

'An introductory textbook that presents the basic principles of the subject matter in a simple and concise manner. Frost and Frost do a good job of linking igneous and metamorphic petrology to basic chemistry and major tectonic processes.' Aley K. El-Shazly, Marshall University, West Virginia

'... succeeds in its stated objective: to convey the essential petrologic information that is needed by all geoscientists ... will provide students with a solid, clearly written, well-illustrated foundation for understanding igneous and metamorphic rocks. I look forward to using this text in my own undergraduate petrology class.' Calvin G. Barnes, Texas Tech University

'The volume is very well illustrated with abundant clear appropriate maps, figures, and photos; additional color photos are available online. This book should be very successful in meeting the authors' stated objective of providing a concise text for a one-semester undergraduate course; it will also be a valuable resource for geologic professionals.' M. E. McCallum, Choice

'... I can highly recommend this book as a well-organized presentation of the essentials of igneous and metamorphic petrology and their application in an up-to-date mix of modern geochemistry and plate tectonics.' American Mineralogist

Reseña del editor:

All geoscience students need to understand the origins, environments and basic processes that produce igneous and metamorphic rocks. This concise textbook, written specifically for one-semester undergraduate courses, provides students with the key information they need to understand these processes. Topics are organized around the types of rocks to expect in a given tectonic environment, rather than around rock classifications: this is much more interesting and engaging for students, as it applies petrology to real geologic environments. This textbook includes over 250 illustrations and photos, and is supplemented by additional color photomicrographs made freely available online. Application boxes throughout the text encourage students to consider how petrology connects to wider aspects of geology, including economic geology, geologic hazards and geophysics. End-of-chapter exercises allow students to apply the concepts they have learnt and practice interpreting petrologic data.
