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. http://serc.carleton.edu/NAGTWorkshops/petrology03/index.html

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.
