Series: Special Publications of The Canadian Mineralogist Volume: 9. By: Edward W Sawyer(Author), David .

Series: Special Publications of The Canadian Mineralogist Volume: 9. By: Edward W Sawyer(Author), David RM Pattison(Preface By). 371 pages, 273 colour photos. In his Atlas of Migmatites, Dr. Edward Sawyer provides genetically based definitions and a system of nomenclature with which it will be possible to describe and map migmatites effectively and to understand how combinations of factors and processes produce a bewildering morphological diversity.

Atlas of Migmatites : The Canadian Mineralogist Special Publication .

Atlas of Migmatites : The Canadian Mineralogist Special Publication 9. Hardback. Migmatites are produced by partial melting; to aid the reader in the identification of migmatites, the author describes and illustrates microstructures that can be used to infer the presence of melt or a melt-producing reaction.

Special Publications In this Atlas of Ore Minerals, we focus on the mineral species encountered in ore .

Special Publications. Volume 11 - Atlas of Ore Minerals: Focus on Epithermal Deposits of Argentina. In this Atlas of Ore Minerals, we focus on the mineral species encountered in ore deposits of the Republic of Argentina, many of them of epithermal type. We describe 210 ore minerals, illustrate their associations, both with macrophotos and in reflected light, and document their chemical composition. This book offers an opportunity to illustrate this systematic approach in the context of mineral species with a French connection.

Migmatite textures are the product of thermal softening of the metamorphic rocks. Schlieren textures are a particularly common example of granite formation in migmatites, and are often seen in restite xenoliths and around the margins of S-type granites. Ptygmatic folds are formed by highly plastic ductile deformation of the gneissic banding, and thus have little or no relationship to a defined foliation, unlike most regular folds.

Migmatites are highly heterogeneous rocks found in high-grade metamorphic environments; they are commonly encountered in the continental crust. Until now, many geologists have been deterred from working with migmatites because of their complex appearance and an unhelpful non-genetic nomenclature. In his Atlas of Migmatites, Dr. Edward Sawyer provides genetically based definitions and a system of nomenclature with which it will be possible to describe and map migmatites effectively and to understand how combinations of factors and processes produce a bewildering morphological diversity. Migmatites are produced by partial melting; to aid the reader in the identification of migmatites, the author describes and illustrates microstructures that can be used to infer the presence of melt or a melt-producing reaction. He also describes how geochemical data can be used to infer petrological processes involved in migmatite development. This book includes the results from two decades of research in whole-rock geochemistry, partial melting, microstructural analysis and experimental deformation of partially molten rocks. It contains information from an outcrop through to a grain scale. Exceptionally well illustrated, with 272 colour plates and accompanying detailed captions, the Atlas provides descriptions and analyses of migmatites not previously available.

The book arrived in perfect condition and much sooner than expected. Very satisfied with the purchase. Thank you.
  • SupperDom
This is the culmination of a century of investigation into migmatites.
If interested, this book is a must.
The pictures alone are worth it.
