Metamorphic Facies and Metamorphosed Mafic Rocks and Mafic.ppt

John Winter, Department of Geology

This 72-slide PowerPoint presentation discusses mineral assemblages and metamorphic facies in terms of temperature and pressure changes. Eclogite, granulite, amphibolite, blueschist, greenschist, prehnite-pumpellyite, zeolite, sanidinite, pyroxene hornfels, hornblende hornfels, and albite-epidote hornfels facies are defined. The presentation also covers partial overprinting, geothermometers, geobarometers, and forward heat flow models. This resource is part of the Teaching Petrology collection.

Part of the Cutting Edge collection. The NAGT/DLESE On the Cutting Edge project helps geoscience faculty stay up-to-date with both geoscience research and teaching methods.
