Petrology is the study of the origins of rocks. Emphasis will be placed on the relationships between lithology, geochemistry, and tectonic setting. Topics will include: classification of igneous and metamorphic rocks, thermodynamics and phase equilibria, the origins and differentiation of magmas, and spatial and temporal development of igneous and metamorphic terranes. Laboratory projects will focus on the use of the petrographic microscope for the determination of minerals and the interpretation of rock textures.
