Dr Arjan Dijkstra, lecturer in igneous petrology, said: "We rely increasingly on our mobile phones but how many of us actually think what is behind the screen?
Historically, much research has focused on the trap, and characterisation of the ore deposits themselves; here we aim to focus deeper in the system by integrating ore deposit formation with concepts of magmatism that arise from igneous petrology and volcanology.
He completed M Phil in Ore Petrology from Jawaharlal Nehru University in 1980 and in 1985, he completed his PhD in Igneous Petrology from JNU.
One of the most discussed matters in igneous petrology is the question of how magmatic rocks solidify or densify (in materials science).
Recollections of a Petrologist introduces the reader to the critical period of the final decades of the nineteenth century and the first decades of the twentieth century as seen through the eyes of a contemporary observer/participant (Joseph Paxson Iddings) at the time when descriptive microscopical petrography evolved into the theoretical science of igneous petrology. Iddings (1857-1920) was a driver of that evolution and one of AmericaAEs great geologists.
of London, UK) developed this text out of his teaching of a second-year igneous petrology course.
The topic is of broad interest, having implications for volcanology, igneous petrology, magma dynamics, and tectonics.
This book is a template for using igneous petrology to dissect "the anatomy of any orogen"; I use it extensively in my volcanology class and refer to it regularly for certain parts of my research.

"We use inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry to determine ultratrace-element abundances in geological and environmental samples," says Clive Neal, a professor of igneous petrology and geochemistry at the Univ.
