Metamorphism of Calcareous and Ultramafic Rocks

John Winter, Department of Geology

This 18-slide PowerPoint presentation describes metamorphism of calcareous rocks in terms of basic composition, SiO2, MgO, CaO ternary diagrams, and isobaric T-XCO2 and T-XH2O diagrams. The chapter also presents CMS-H diagrams and isobaric T-X diagrams to describe ultramafic rocks. 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.
