Petrology (from Greek: “Petra”—“rock” and “logos”—“knowledge”) is the study of rocks, their occurrences, composition, origin and evolution. This research also focuses on the study of minerals and meteorites (Fig. ) as model to unravel the interiors of planetary raphy deals with the detailed description and classification of rocks, whereas petrology focuses.
Igneous petrology is the study of igneous rocks—those that are formed from magma. As a branch of geology, igneous petrology is closely related to volcanology, tectonophysics, and petrology in general. The modern study of igneous rocks utilizes a number of techniques, some of them developed in the fields of chemistry, physics, or other earth sciences. As a major text in igneous petrology, this innovative book offers a much-needed, radically different approach to the study of igneous rocks. Bridging a long-recognized gap in the literature by providing petrogenic models for magmatismin terms of global tectonic processes, it encompasses geophysics and geochemistry in a comprehensive treatment of the textbooks in igneous petrology.

Papers published during the period on the petrology and geochemistry of igneous rocks are discussed, with emphasis on tectonic environment.
Consideration is given to oceanic rocks, subdivided into divergent margin suites (mid-ocean ridge basalts, ridge-related seamounts, and. Igneous petrology relates to the study of rocks that solidified from hot, molten or partly molten material, i.e., igneous rocks (Latin ignis, fire). It includes volcanology (vulcanology) that deals with the processes by which magma and its gases rise into the crust and are extruded on the Earthŉs surface and into the atmosphere (volcanism.
This book is designed to give students a balanced and comprehensive coverage of these new advances, as well as a firm grounding in the classical aspects of igneous and metamorphic petrology. The emphasis throughout is on the processes controlling petrogenesis, but care is taken to present the important descriptive information so crucial to.
The study of volcanic and igneous plumbing system is a scientific discipline that builds on multi-disciplinary research on magma movement, evolution, and storage from the fields of volcanology, igneous petrology and geochemistry, geophysics and volcano geodesy.
As outlined in the chapters of this book, research has revealed a complex picture of. In summary, the later chapters of the book could usefully be assigned as reading to supplement another text. However, because of problems in level and style of presentation in the earlier chapters, it might be difficult to use this book as principal or sole text for an undergraduate course in igneous petrology.
