Atlas of Metamorphic Rocks and Their Textures

Section Tetxures includes photomicrographs of a wide rangeof rock of different chemistries metamorphosed under a variety of physical conditions and in different metamorphic settings. Photomicrographs are grouped under five headings-simple textural terms, plastic deformation and mylonitization, time relations between deformation and metamorphism, reaction textures, and textures of polymetamorphism.

For the pelites and basic to intermediate igneous rocks, photomicrographs of assemblages formed by progressive metamorphism at intermediate pressure are followed by examples of highand low-pressure assemblages.

Lists What are lists? Oxford University Press, ,s 14p. A short description identifies the main features illustrated by each photomicrograph, but complete petrographic de- scriptions of the rocks are not given. Taken together, the series of papers makes for a collection of a wide variety of applications of stable isotope geochemistry to many diverse problems and shows how widespread stable isotope studies have become in the study of the natural sciences.

Recognition of shear zones is not always simple, but is important because recent studies show that shearing may be accompanied by significant changes in rock chemistry. TosselI and David J.
