  Metamorphic rocks are the third great class of rocks. They occur when sedimentary and igneous rocks become changed, or metamorphosed, by conditions underground. The four main agents that metamorphose rocks are heat, pressure, fluids, and strain. These agents can act and interact in an almost infinite variety of : Andrew Alden. 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.5/5(1).

For each class of rocks -- igneous, sedimentary, and metamorhic -- the author describes textures, structures, mineralogy, chemistry, and classification as a background to discussing representative.

In contrast, continent-continent collision zones are marked by moderate pressure-high temperature metamorphism. This work covers the subject of the petrology of the metamorphic rocks, including such subjects as rock and mineral compositions and their relationship, metamorphism associated with igneous intrusions, dynamic metamorphism, extra-terrestrial metamorphism and metamorphism in collision s: 0.

Metamorphic facies indicates all the different mineral assemblages of equal and similar conditions with regard to the origin of pressure and temperature, irrespective of origin of some minerals in metamorphic rocks.

In this book, metamorphic rocks are systematized according to metamorphic facies. This book is composed of 11 chapters and begins with a presentation of the metamorphic processes and the production of metamorphic minerals. The subsequent chapters describe the structural classification of grain boundaries, the metamorphic reactions, mineral transformations, and the crystallization and recrystallization of metamorphic rocks.

Metamorphic rocks and processes • Metamorphism comes from the Greek words “Meta” - change “Morphe” - form • Metamorphic rocks form by solid-state (no melting) transformation of preexisting rock by processes that take place beneath Earth’s surface. Metamorphic rocks started out as some other type of rock, but have been substantially changed from their original igneous, sedimentary, or earlier metamorphic form.

Metamorphic rocks form when rocks are subjected to high heat, high pressure, hot mineral-rich fluids or, more commonly, some combination of these factors. Metamorphic rocks arise from the transformation of existing rock types, in a process called metamorphism, which means "change in form".

The original rock is subjected to heat (temperatures greater than to °C) and pressure ( megapascals (1, bar) or more), causing profound physical or chemical protolith may be a sedimentary, igneous, or existing metamorphic rock.
