A very rich chapter on the Origin o f fabric: 1 nucleation and crystal growth; 2 dislocations: edge dislocations; but also dislocations can be mobilized and even eliminated recovery ; 3 the distinction between stress and strain elastic or plastic ; ductile flow twin gliding , kinkband, point d e f e c t s bending, hydrolytic weakening, pressure solution, segregation layering. Metasomatism is studied in view of differentiation, zoning, rate theory and steps.
Proterozoic rocks. There are basaltic intrusions, anorthosites and rapakivis. Mobile belts as the Grenville Province are a part of the continental revolution. Mantle evolution Sr and Nd isotopes is dealt with and also core segregation. An interesting chapter is devoted to Extraterrestrial petrology: the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars and the meteorites. Almost each chapter is followed by a summary, s tu d y questions and references.
Developments in Petrology, 9. This b o o k , in the author's words, a t t e m p t s to "present a more or less systematic review of metamorphic processes and metamorphosed rocks.
The result makes for difficult reading, and in places incomprehension. The b o o k is organized into four main chapters, the first three dealing with m e t h o d s of study, physical conditions, and chemical character of metamorphism.
The f o u r t h chapter, which comprises m or e than a third of the book, is a discussion of the various kinds o f m e t a m o r p h i c rocks that f or m from sedim e n t a r y and igneous rocks under different m e t a m o r p h i c conditions. It is this part of the b o o k th at will be especially interesting to English-speaking geologists, as the examples cited are primarly f r om the Bohemian Massif, thus making available to Westerners some o f the literature o f t hat fascinating area.
A general geologic map of the Massif would have been helpful; a small map on p. The c o n t r i b u t i o n this b o o k makes to metamorphic p etr o lo g y is difficult to evaluate.
In general the b o o k seems to give m or e a t t e n t i o n to o u t m o d e d ideas than would be desired, and n o t enough to new ones, bot h theoretical and experimental.
Igneous and metamorphic petrology
Some concepts as stated are n o t universally accepted, as, for instance, the relative i m p o r t a n c e given to metasomatism. However, stylistic problems in the translation, bot h in the syntax and in p o o r to i m p r o p e r wording make it difficult in m a n y instances to be sure of the author's intent.
I suspect that in places the words end up saying something he did not mean. Rocks and Hard Places. Percolation and rocks.

Roth physical and chemical aspects of petrology are clearly and lucidly explained, and the text is punctuated by numerous, helpful illustrations. Thankfully, Philpotts does not sidestep the need to quantify petrologic, geophysical, and geochemical phenomena.
Indeed, one of the strong points about the book is that the mathematics necessary to understand the basic concepts is not only included, but derivations of important relationships are given in full. Problem sets given at the end of each chapter reinforce and extend the concepts described in the text and provide many ready-made examination questions for the instructor , and are an integral part of the material covered.
Use of this text should convince all geology students of the need to formulate models in mathematical terms, and of the need to learn to Institute ofGeochemistry University of Vienna A Vienna, Austria Christian Koebert Book Reviews discussion of trace element systematics would have been useful. After all, interpretation of trace element data is critical for constraining the role of processes such as assimilation and magma mixing, as well as for inferring the characteristics of the source regions of magmas.
Similarly, I would like to have seen the chapter on isotope geochemistry placed earlier and greater use of isotopic data made in the section on assimilation. However, these are minor points and reflect my own prejudices. This book is designed as an introductory text for students who have completed undergraduate coursework in physics, chemistry and calculus.
It could be used both for undergraduate and beginning-level graduate courses, and would serve as a useful supplementary text for introductory courses in other subjects e. I shah certainly adopt it for my own classes, and it deserves serious consideration by other petrology instructors.
It belongs on the shelves of all petrologists, geochemists, and geophysicists, indeed all of those interested in the solid earth. Planetary Mapping edited by R. Greeley and R.
Cam- the problem of what projection to use in mapping. For experienced planetologists, one of the most interesting chapters will probably be that on Planetary Nomenclature by M.
Strobe11 and the late H. Masursky former President of the I. Working Group for Planetary System Nomenclature. This chapter should in fact be read by all advanced geology students to increase their understanding of how any sort of geologic mapping is or should be done.
An interesting implication of this chapter is that fundamentally sound geologic maps of the Moon-at least the near sidecould have been done in the 19th century by applying stratigraphic principles to telescopic observations.
For completeness, this review should make it clear what Planetary Mapping is not. It is not an atlas and makes no pretence of presenting encyclopedic coverage of the solar system or even the Moon. There is little on geophysical or geochemical mapping, a significant omission for the Moon. There are no color plates or fold-out maps, and readers must supply their own stereoscopes for the few stereopairs presented.
Layout and typography are excellent, as we might expect from a publisher in business since A RATHER matter-of-fact title has been given to this extraordinarily interesting scientific text, simultaneously to varying degrees a history of solar system exploration, a history of solar system astronomy, and an account of the techniques by which the Moon, the solid planets, and dozens of satellites have been mapped since space flight began.
Edited by two experienced planetary mappers, the seven chapters are authored by those who have actually pioneered planetary cartography. This book was written just in time, so to speak.
Some 30 years have elapsed since modem lunar and planetary mapping began, and many of the pioneers, such as Arnold Mason, Bob Hackman, and one author of this book, Hal Masursky, have died or at best retired. Delayed five more years, Planetary Mapping could have been written, but not by the first generation of space age mappers. The subject matter and organization are summarized by chapter headings: Three appendices cover map projections, printing processes, and digital planetary cartography.
Each chapter concludes with an extensive bibliography, chiefly to the primary literature. The treatment level varies.His experience is mainly based on trace element investigations predominantly of Australian coals which he compared with results from worldwide sampling.
I think that more Philpotts. Working Group for Planetary System Nomenclature. However, these are minor points and reflect my own prejudices. There is little on geophysical or geochemical mapping, a significant omission for the Moon.
Petrography of Igneous and Metamorphic Rocks
The author is to be congratulated for assembling impressive and interesting illustrations. Some tables and figures do n o t confirm what is said in the text, and others are incorrectly labeled. I found the section on metamorphism to be patticularly good. For experienced planetologists, one of the most interesting chapters will probably be that on Planetary Nomenclature by M. After all, interpretation of trace element data is critical for constraining the role of processes such as assimilation and magma mixing, as well as for inferring the characteristics of the source regions of magmas.
