This 15-slide PowerPoint presentation takes the viewer through a real life investigation of metamorphic terrane consisting of pelitic and calcareous rocks. The investigation includes recognition of 5 reactions that take place in the area. P-T, AFM, and T-X diagrams provide visual tools used to assess the conditions under which the metamorphic rocks formed. 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.
