Metamorphic Geology: A Text-book

Nature volume 96, pages 701702 (24 February 1916) | Download Citation



THIS book is divided into four parts. The first deals with the alteration of rocks by surface agencies (katamorphism), the second with cementation and alteration by deep-seated agencies (anamorphism), the third with the general principles of metamorphism, and the fourth with laboratory work on the subject. The authors concern themselves rather with results than with the chemical and physical processes by which those results are brought about, and they endeavour so far as possible to apply quantitative methods. A special feature of the book is the representation, by graphic methods, of the relative gains and losses of the chemical constituents during metamorphism.
