JOHANSSEN, Descriptive Petrology of the Igneous Rocks, in four volumes,. Chicago; vol. i matter of his book on mfetamorphism and the metamorphic rocks.

Despite these inaccuracies, the bulk of the text is correct and readable. In this respect, chapter 8 is especially deplorable.

Principles and Practice

There should be just one sentence: If we are to attract quality students to petrology in the future, the black-magic approach to teaching must be discarded in favor of a fully quantitative approach.

The first chapter sets tbe tone, and includes a discussion of pressure distribution within the earth, temperature gradients and heat flow in the lithosphere, heat sources within the earth, and the steady-state geotherm.

However, a list of chapter titles does not do justice to the contents. The chapter on intrusion of magma, for example, includes an introduction to fluid dynamics whereas that on the cooling of igneous bodies includes a very good summary ofthe theory of heat conduction error functions included! The next four chapters deal with thermodynamics and phase equilibrium. Chapters 11 and 12 discuss the effects of volatiles on melt equilibria including an introduction to two-oxide thermobarometry and crystal growth, whereas magmatic processes and igneous rock associations arc covered in chapters I3 and I found the section on metamorphism to be patticularly good.

Philpotts covers all of the important topics and concepts in pages, yet coverage of some of these e. Also, metamorphism is largely governed by exactly the same principles described in earlier chapters in the book. The final two chapters are on isotope geochemistry dating methods, evolution of isotopic reservoirs and stable isotopes and on the origin of rocks advective heat transfer, conditions for melting, melt generation and accumulation, mantle composition and partial melting.

I do have some minor criticisms of the book. I think that more Philpotts. Prentice-Hall, X.

The problem with most texts, in my view, is that they emphasize petrogenesis. This approach usually involves presentation of a bewildering number of facts and descriptions of numerous localities followed by an attempt at synthesis to reach qualitative conclusions.

All too often, the reader is left with the impression that nearly all of the major questions in petrology have been satisfactorily answered. Nothing could be further from the truth. Petrology is a rapidly evolving subject, and petrogenetic models are discarded or modified as data accumulate and are interpreted.

Consequently, books which emphasize petrogenesis are soon out of date and their main use is that they give an overview of the ideas prevailing just prior to the time of publication.

As recognized long ago by Bowen, it is the basic principles that should be emphasized because these provide the coherent framework within which petrogenetic models must be constructed. This is exactly the philosophy followed by Anthony R. Philpotts in Principles Igneous and Metamorphic Petrology. This book is a most welcome, long-awaited, and important addition to the geological literature. Philpotts treats petrology largely in terms of simple models that can be tested by quantitative analysis.

Accordingly, description of field aspects and of rock associations is kept to a minimum, and there is no lengthy discussion of petrogenesis on the basis of magma-type, metamorphic rock-type, or tectonic environment.

Roth physical and chemical aspects of petrology are clearly and lucidly explained, and the text is punctuated by numerous, helpful illustrations.

Thankfully, Philpotts does not sidestep the need to quantify petrologic, geophysical, and geochemical phenomena. Indeed, one of the strong points about the book is that the mathematics necessary to understand the basic concepts is not only included, but derivations of important relationships are given in full.

Igneous and Metamorphic Petrology, 2nd edition

Problem sets given at the end of each chapter reinforce and extend the concepts described in the text and provide many ready-made examination questions for the instructor , and are an integral part of the material covered. Use of this text should convince all geology students of the need to formulate models in mathematical terms, and of the need to learn to Institute ofGeochemistry University of Vienna A Vienna, Austria Christian Koebert Book Reviews discussion of trace element systematics would have been useful.

After all, interpretation of trace element data is critical for constraining the role of processes such as assimilation and magma mixing, as well as for inferring the characteristics of the source regions of magmas. Similarly, I would like to have seen the chapter on isotope geochemistry placed earlier and greater use of isotopic data made in the section on assimilation.

However, these are minor points and reflect my own prejudices. This book is designed as an introductory text for students who have completed undergraduate coursework in physics, chemistry and calculus. It could be used both for undergraduate and beginning-level graduate courses, and would serve as a useful supplementary text for introductory courses in other subjects e.

I shah certainly adopt it for my own classes, and it deserves serious consideration by other petrology instructors. It belongs on the shelves of all petrologists, geochemists, and geophysicists, indeed all of those interested in the solid earth.

Planetary Mapping edited by R. Greeley and R. Cam- the problem of what projection to use in mapping. For experienced planetologists, one of the most interesting chapters will probably be that on Planetary Nomenclature by M. Strobe11 and the late H. Masursky former President of the I. Working Group for Planetary System Nomenclature. This chapter should in fact be read by all advanced geology students to increase their understanding of how any sort of geologic mapping is or should be done.

An interesting implication of this chapter is that fundamentally sound geologic maps of the Moon-at least the near sidecould have been done in the 19th century by applying stratigraphic principles to telescopic observations.

For completeness, this review should make it clear what Planetary Mapping is not. It is not an atlas and makes no pretence of presenting encyclopedic coverage of the solar system or even the Moon. There is little on geophysical or geochemical mapping, a significant omission for the Moon. Philpotts covers all of the important topics and concepts in pages, yet coverage of some of these e.
