John Winter, Department of Geology


This PowerPoint presentation includes 30 slides discussing metamorphism in pelitic rocks. The presentation uses AKF diagrams to describe Barrovian zones of metamorphism in metapelites. Metamorphism in pelitic hornfels rocks is also discussed and migmatitic textures are illustrated. 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.
