Granitoid Rocks

Front Cover
Springer Science & Business Media, May 31, 1992 - Science - 284 pages
By stressing the various techniques used to determine the petrogenic history of granites, and by bridging the gap between undergraduate and research texts, this book provides a clear understanding of the current state of knowledge of the granite family.
