About the Book

Basics of Metamorphic Petrology covers various topics in metamorphic petrology. It discusses tectonic settings, physical conditions, types of metamorphism, classical study areas, mineral paragenesis and parent rock composition during metamorphism. It also explores facies, phase rule application in constructing chemographic diagrams, metamorphism of basic and pelitic rocks and the importance of petrogenetic grids. The behavior of impure calcareous rocks is explained using experimental data. The book explains thermodynamics and its application to metamorphic processes. It covers pressure and temperature determination (P-T) and briefly addresses the relevance of P-T-t paths in metamorphism. It includes a practical field guide for identifying metamorphic rocks. The final chapter explores the structure and texture of metamorphic rocks. Targeted at undergraduate and postgraduate geology students, the book aims to provide a solid foundation in metamorphic petrology, encompassing theory and field aspects. It enables independent understanding of the subject matter.

About the Author

Dr. R.M. Manickavasagam is a retired Professor from Earth Sciences and Institute Instrumentation Center, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Roorkee. He started his teaching career for undergraduate students of geology at one of the University colleges in Tamil Nadu for about six years. During that time, he taught various geology subjects, including theory, practical and field training. Later after obtaining a doctoral degree in geology, he moved to IIT, where he taught postgraduate students and guided Ph.D. scholars in the specialized field of metamorphic petrology, ore geology and geochemistry for more than two decades. Due to his vast experience in theoretical and practical knowledge in these subjects, the book is written comprehensively for the benefit of geology students.
