|Petrology and P Guide - Resources and Review
|Association that represents the primary international focus for research in volcanology, efforts to mitigate volcanic disasters, and research into related disciplines, such as igneous geochemistry and petrology, geochronology, volcanogenic mineral deposits, and the physics of the generation and ascent of magmas in the upper mantle and crust.|| |
|An international journal on the geophysical, geochemical, petrological, economic and environmental aspects of volcanology and geothermal research.|| |
|Copyright notes and self|
directed exercises which complement the lectures and laboratories of Geology 202, Introduction to Petrology - a course offered in the Geological Sciences Department of the University of British Columbia.
|Collection of links to journals, publishers, surveys, mineralogical databases, professional societies, laboratories, and research groups concerned with mineralogy and petrology.|| |
|Collection of hundreds of gem images including examples of agate, amber, azurite beryl, coral, cordierite, corundum, crysoberyl, feldspars, garnet, ivory, lapis lazuli malachite, olivine, opal, pearls, pyroxenes, quartz, rutile, spinel, tagua tanzanite, topaz, tourmaline, turquoise and zircon.|| |
|Research and theory in geophysics, geochemistry, sedimentology, geomorphology, petrology, plate tectonics, volcanology, structural geology, mineralogy, and planetary sciences. Tables of contents available.|| |
|OUP journal. Topics include trace element and isotope geochemistry and geochronology applied to petrogenesis; experimental petrology; processes of magma generation, differentiation and emplacement; quantitative studies of rock|
forming minerals and their paragenesis; regional studies of igneous and meta morphic rocks which contribute to the solution of fundamental petrological problems; theoretical modelling of petrogenetic processes.
|Set of pictures of fluorescent minerals photographed under long wave or short wave ultraviolet light.|| |
|Full text of classic book on sediments, originally intended to supplement lecture and laboratory material given in sedimentary petrology courses at the University of Texas.|| |
|Introduction to igneous rocks, explaining the composition of granite, diorite, gabbro, rhyolite, andesite, basalt, and intrusive and extrusive rocks. Images of rock outcrops in their natural settings accompany the explanatory text, and the tour ends with a short quiz.|| |
