The Evolution of the Igneous Rocks, by N. L. Bowen, appeared in 1928 and had a profound influence on later generations of petrologists. Drawing on his series of lectures at Princeton University in the spring of 1927, Dr. Bowen identified, outlined, and applied the principles of physical chemistry relevant to petrological processes. Whereas the major petrochemical questions he discussed are still relevant today, the answers appear to change with time. The purpose of the present volume is to provide an updated view of those questions, in the light of almost fifty years of accumulated observations, using the principles Bowen set forth. Originally published in 1979. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.

Hess (geological sciences, Brown U.) explores the complex process of the generation and cooling of those rocks formed by solidification from a molten state, either intrusively, below the earth's crust, or extrusively as lava. Some topics treated are: magmatic differentiation and other processes; nature of silicate melts; island-arc volcanism; continental flood basalts and rifts; lunar petrology; ocean-floor volcanism. An advanced treatment. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

In 1928 a new landmark in petrology appeared, with the publication of Bowen's "The Evolution of the Igneous Rocks." There has been an increasing need for a sequel, especially to take into account the developments and consequences of high pressure experimentation, as the gap between Bowen's book and modern experimental petrology grew apace. This volume treats selected areas in depth, and the authors have tried to follow Bowen in producing a perspective view of the subject, advances made, relating the experiments to geological observations, and avoiding as much unfamiliar terminology as possible. This book is a basic text in experimental petrology, intended for earth scientists from the undergraduate level onwards.

The variety of volcanic activity in the Solar System is widely recognised, yet the majestic sequences of magmatic processes that operate within an active planet are much less well known. Providing an exposition of igneous rocks, magmas and volcanic erupsions, this book brings together magnetic and volcanic data from different tectonic settings, and planets, with explanations of how they fit together. It systematically examines composition, origin and evolution of common igneous rocks, yet also examines a variety of rare magnetic rocks that play a crucial role in the global magma/igneous rock system.

Explores the complex physico-chemical processes involved in active volcanism and dynamic magmatism Understanding the magmatic processes responsible for the chemical and textural signatures of volcanic products and igneous rocks is crucial for monitoring, forecasting, and mitigating the impacts of volcanic activity. Dynamic Magma Evolution is a compilation of recent geochemical, petrological, physical, and thermodynamic studies. It combines field research, experimental results, theoretical approaches, unconventional and novel techniques, and computational modeling to present the latest developments in the field. Volume highlights include: Crystallization and degassing processes in magmatic environments Bubble and mineral nucleation and growth induced by cooling and decompression Kinetic processes during magma ascent to the surface Magma mixing, mingling, and recharge dynamics Geo-speedometer measurement of volcanic events Changes in magma rheology induced by mineral and volatile content The American Geophysical Union promotes discovery in Earth and space science for the benefit of humanity. Its publications disseminate scientific knowledge and provide resources for researchers, students, and professionals.

Definition and classification of different kinds of rocks are essential in furnishing a language by which petrological concepts may be conveyed and observational data concerning rocks may be intelligibly recorded.However,there is no general agreement as to the most satisfactory basis of classification or as to the extent to which precision of definition is desirable and practicable.

Petrology and Genesis of Igneous Rocks comprises of two parts - the first part (Chapters 1 to 8) deals with constituent minerals, texture, thermodynamic principles, phase relations in natural rock systems and causes of diversity in a single petrographic province. Petrology of the crust, mantle and core, the convective cycle patterns in the mantle and their relation to magma genesis and physicochemical properties of magma are also discussed in this part. Use of Isotope geology in determination of age and degree of magma mixing is included towards the end of the first part. The second part (Chapters 9-13) describes individual rock types, from various countries including their geochemistry, petrology and genesis.
