Part 1 The three field categories of metamorphic rocks; studying thin sections of metamorphic rocks; laboratory study of metamorphic rocks; why study metamorphic rocks? Part 2 Rock and mineral compositions and their relationship; classification of metamorphic rocks; thermo-tectonic modelling. Part 3 Metamorphism associated with igneous intrusions: the Skiddaw Contact Aureole, Cumbria, England; the Bheinn and Dubhaich Aureole, Isle of Skye, Scotland. Part 4 Dynamic metamorphism: the Mutki granitic Mylonite, Turkey. Part 5 Metamorphism associated with lithospheric extension: metamorphism at spreading ocean ridges. Part 6 Metamorphism in subduction zones. Part 7 Metamorphism in collision zones: metamorphic evolution of pelitic rocks of Connemara, Ireland. Part 8 Metamorphism in stable continental crust: metamorphism in Dengfeng County, Henan Province, China; Pyroxene gneisses of northwestern Scotland; the Adirondack Mountains, State of New York, U.S.A.; heat-flow and thermal gradients in continental crust. Part 9 Metamorphic rocks of the mantle. Part 10 Extra-terrestrial metamorphism.
