Petrology (from the Ancient Greek: πέτρος, romanized: pétros, lit. 'rock' and λόγος, lógos) is the branch of geology that studies rocks and the conditions under which they form. Petrology has three subdivisions: igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary petrology. Igneous and metamorphic petrology are commonly taught together because they both contain heavy use of chemistry, chemical. This is a very good introductory petrology text which combines igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic petrology in one volume. With a publication date of , it may be getting a little long in the tooth, however. For example, the book discusses the Wilson hot spot model without reference to Cited by: Other articles where Metamorphic petrology is discussed: geology: Metamorphic petrology: Metamorphism means change in form. In geology the term is used to refer to a solid-state recrystallization of earlier igneous, sedimentary, or metamorphic rocks. There are two main types of metamorphism: (1) contact metamorphism, in which changes induced largely by increase in temperature.

ADVERTISEMENTS: This article will help you to learn about the rock cycle with diagram. The change of one rock into another type under different conditions of heat, pressure, weathering and erosion is known as rock cycle. Initially, all minerals originated from igneous rocks. As soon as igneous rocks are exposed they are weathered and eroded [ ].
