Pressestimmen

From the reviews of the seventh edition:

"Petrogenesis of Metamorphic Rocks is, like the preceding six editions, a fine and important book. By and large, it is precise and accurate, clearly written, logically organized and well focused. It is suitable as a text for serious, no-nonsense, one-semester undergraduate course in metamorphic petrology … . ‘Winkler’s 7th’ is a suitable text for the graduate level." (Tomas Feininger, The Canadian Mineralogist, Vol. 40, 2003)

"This new edition of a classic text has packed in even more information than the previous editions. Extensive lists of up to date references, use of the most current data, and lists of currently available software and appropriate web sites add to the comprehensive content. … basic historical and scientific fundamentals are well covered and the very structured layout of the text makes basic information relatively easily to retrieve. … an excellent update to an excellent text." (Suzanne Miller, Geoscientist, Vol. 13 (9), 2003)

"Petrogenesis of Metamorphic Rocks has been written with the intention of giving senior level undergraduate and postgraduate students the practical knowledge and understanding needed to interpret metamorphic rocks … . Overall the book is well presented and up-to-date … . this is definitely one of the best texts available for advanced courses in metamorphic petrology, or for individuals wanting a modern reference text. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and I am sure I will use it as a source of information for teaching and research." (Ian Fitzsimons, The Australian Geologist, Issue 129, 2003)

Synopsis

Metamorphic rocks make up the largest volume of the Earth. They systematically change their mineralogical composition as a result of tecto-thermal events. The outstanding feature of the 7th edition of this book is the large number of phase diagrams showing the stability relations among minerals and groups of minerals found in metamorphic rocks. The diagrams help to determine the pressure and temperature conditions under which a given collected set of metamorphic rocks may have formed. More than half of the chapters have been completely rewritten or revised. All figures have been edited and improved and recent advances in the field such as multiequilibria thermobarometry and pseudosections were incorporated in the text. The bibliography has been revised and extended, new research publications have also been included. Graduate students will find in depth information on the origin, significance and genesis of metamorphic rocks. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This book is divided into two sections. The first section deals with the basic princiles of metamorphism, including composition of source rocks, types, processes and condidtions of metamorphism. A very detailed description on the construction of metamorphic projections is also included. Part two covers the metamorphism of different rock compositions including ultramafic, mafic, carbonate, pelitic, and granitoid rocks. This section is very detailed, without bogging down with specific examples of metamorphism.

Petrogenesis of metamorphic rocks is probable the best textbook available for students of metamorphic petrology. In a short, concise form it introduces the reader to the principles of metamorphic petrology as well as to the evolution of different rock types under changing metamorphic conditions.

HASH(0xa0489eac) von 5 Sternen The Best of Several Excellent Choices 20. September 2012
Von D. R. Martz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This is a review of the 8th edition, 2011. There are several excellent texts, including Vernon and Clarke's, and the volume by John Winter covering igneous and metamorphic rocks. In Petrogenesis of Metamorphic Rocks, Bucher and Grapes address a variety of important effects that receive limited treatment elsewhere. As with other texts, FASH, NCMASH, and related thermodynamic models are used to represent theoretical mineral stabilities in a pressure, temperature regime for a rock of given chemistry, and resultant assemblies are compared with site-specific studies. But Bucher and Grapes understand the limits of simplistic computer models. Important variations upon basic themes are discussed, including expected effects of important species like fluorine, water, potassium, sodium, and aluminum. (Simplification of processes is unrealistic in systems where minerals like biotite can 'hide' large quantities of titanium or barium, until P and T force them out.) The result is a book with practical applicability to more actual chemical variants likely to be encountered. For example, Vernon and Clark largely ignore peraluminous cases generating corundum, whereas Bucher and Grapes discuss the nature of starting material and the chemical changes producing this important rock type (emery). They also provide some sense of volatiles and fluids generated by metamorphic changes, the as yet poorly understood puppet master affecting import and export of species, and impacts to adjacent rock bodies. All three of these texts are excellent, but Bucher and Grapes have produced the best.

There is, however, is serious flaw in presenting equilibrium models as representative of actual field situations. The results of these models do NOT explain or match real cases. They only do because geologists ignore half of what they see. Statistical validation with a field case is impractical, but consider that the 4 kilometer thick section of marl used in the book to validate the model's equilibrium assemblage is essentially an impossible monolayer of sediment. Other examples are equally unrealistic. The metamorphic faces compared to the model are selectively chosen from what can only have been different mineral starting points. The main problem with this book (and others that use these models) is the lack of proper discussion of this. The student is left with information so one sided as to be propaganda. It establishes false expectations for what is to be found in the field, and encourages a sort of myopic, gross mapping to abstractions. Impressionable students need to have a half dozen pages (at least) of objectifying discussion.
