ESS323H1: Metamorphic Petrology



This course provides a basic understanding of the formative processes of metamorphic rocks through quantitative applications of simple thermodynamic and kinetic principles. Topics include processes of heat and mass transport in orogenic belts, fluid-rock interaction in metasomatic systems, pressure-temperature-time paths of metamorphic rocks, temporospatial patterns of metamorphism through geologic time, and metamorphism in extreme conditions.
