Francis John Turner - WikipediaThis book is intended for the use of advanced students research workers and teachers in the field of petrology. Its aim is to present a unified general impression of the origin and evolution of rocks that are generally believed to have crystallized or to have been profoundly modified at high temperatures and at pressures such as prevail from the earths surface to a depth of perhaps 20 km. This impression must necessarily be marred and blurred by omissions and misinterpretations on the part. Of the authors for it is based on data of field association mineralogy chemistry-end fabric of the rocks themselves too voluminous to be grasped and adequately handled by one or even two students. More-over its limitations reflect the prejudices and necessarily restricted geological experience of two individuals.
[PDF.43oz] Igneous and Metamorphic Petrology
At Otago he became interested in metamorphism and studied the unexplored metamorphic rocks of South Island on which he earned his PhD in from the University of New Zealand. His application and expansion of Pentti Eskola 's concept of metamorphic facies led to his publication of Mineralogical and Structural Evolution of Metamorphic Rocks , the book that established his position in the field of petrology and was a great influence on a generation of geologists. In he accepted a position at the University of California in Berkeley. At Berkeley he gained insight into experimental studies of petrology and geochemistry. He later collaborated with John Verhoogen on the classic work Igneous and Metamorphic Petrology published in

how to make a study guide for a book
The popular interpretation of lunar maria, as sequences of primary picritic flood basalts derived by remelting a mantle that had accumulated from a global magma ocean, has many unsatisfactory aspects. The expertise of Keith Cox would have been valuable in their interpretation. Few among us will ever see more basalt at a glance than one can see any fine night with a full Moon. Basaltic magmas have played a very important role in planetary crust formation see Basaltic Volcanism Study Project, and basaltic igneous activity has predominated on at least seven extra-terrestrial bodies in the Solar System e. Shearer et al. Samples of at least four of these bodies are available through meteorite discoveries, or through manned and unmanned mission returns, yet in the 40 years of the existence of Journal of Petrology it has carried remarkably few papers dealing with the petrology and petrogenesis of extra-terrestrial basalts.
