John Winter, Department of Geology


This 16-slide PowerPoint presentation discusses the characteristics of granitoid rocks including geographic occurrence, rare earth elements, enclave characteristics, pressure-temperature conditions, the influence of water, and tectonic setting. 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.
