[This chapter is a brief account of the history of the ideas that provided the conceptual basis for metamorphic petrology, with a list of outstanding researchers who made the greatest contributions to the study of metamorphism mostly until the end of the last century. The main emphasis is on the...
[This chapter presents the most recent and comprehensive overview of a wide range of basic geothermobarometric techniques used in metamorphic petrology. This chapter provides specific mineralogical calibrations based on exchange equilibria involving the major or trace elements and net-transfer...
[This chapter considers numerical model-based relationships between metamorphism and geodynamics, discusses tectonomagmatic causes and controls of metamorphism, and makes attempt to link the geological types of metamorphism to the specific Р-Т conditions and Р-Т-t paths. Three categories of...
[This chapter presents a generalized P-T-t diagram of the evolution of metamorphic complexes of different geodynamic nature that are characteristic of different types of metamorphism. This diagram was built using the most recent natural observations, which are characterized by the simultaneous...
