My book Metamorphic Rocks and Metamorphic Belts (in Japanese) was published by Iwanami Shoten, Publishers, in Tokyo in 1965. A few years later, Mr D. Lynch-Blosse of George Allen & Unwin Ltd contacted me to explore the possibility of translating it into English. Thus, translation accompanied by rewriting of substantial parts of the book was made in subsequent years, resulting in the present book Metamorphism and Metamorphic Belts. This title was chosen to emphasize the tectonic Significance of metamorphic belts. Metamorphic geology has a long history. The microscopic description and classification of metamorphic rocks began in the late nineteenth century. The theory of equilibrium mineral assemblages began in the first half of the twentieth century. Detailed mineralogical studies and the experimental determination of the pressure-temperature conditions of metamorphism began in the 1950s. The importance of metamorphic petrology in our understanding of the tectonic processes has been realized only in the past decade. This book is intended to synthesize the mineralogic, petrologic" and tectonic aspects of metamorphism. Advanced treatment of the thermodynamic and structural aspects is not intended.
This Book Is In Commemoration Of The Life And Work Of Professor R.S. Sharma, An Eminent Metamorphic Petrologist And Mineralogist. It Incorporates The Latest Developments In The Field Of Metamorphic Petrology. The Volume Is Divided Into Five Sections, Namely Metamorphism, Fluid Processes, Himalayan Metamorphism, Uhp/ Uht Metamorphism, And Geochronology & Geochemistry. The Book Would Be Of Great Interest To All Geoscientists Concerned With Metamorphic Processes And Crustal Evolution.The Main Topics Covered In The Book Include:The Granulite Facies, Crustal Melting, And Prograde And Retrograde Phase Equilibria In Metapelites At The Amphibolite To Granulite Facies Transition Tim E.

Volume 26 of Reviews in Mineralogy provides a multidisciplinary review of our current knowledge of contact metamorphism. As in any field of endeavor, we are provided with new questions, thereby dictating future directions of study. Hopefully, this volume will provide inspiration and direction for future research on contact metamorphism. The Mineralogical Society of America sponsored the short course on Contact Metamorphism, October 17-19, 1991, at the Pala Mesa Resort, Fallbrook, California, prior to its annual meeting with the Geological Society of America.
The unifying theme to the papers in this volume is that they deal with economic accumulations of sulfide minerals which, together with their host rocks, have been affected to varying degrees by regional metamorphism. The principle sulfide deposit types discussed are stratabound ZnCuPbAgBa deposits in regionally metamorphosed terranes which occur in a diverse variety of host lithologies. In addition other interesting deposit types are discussed and examples are presented from various parts of the world. The topics treated in this volume are: the interaction of sulfide minerals with their host rocks during regional metamorphism; the quantitative interpretation of P-T-time histories of regional metamorphism in which both sulfide and silicate phase relations must be considered together in order to meaningfully interpret the metamorphic history; the question of how to identify progenitors of rocks modified by tectonic and metamorphic processes and the implications of these studies; developing future exploration strategies for massive sulfide deposits in meatmorphic terranes.
This book examines the geological aspects of the ultrahigh pressure minerals - diamond and coesite - in the Earth's crust.
