About this book

Dealing with the petrogenesis of granitic rocks, this work provides a summary and interpretation of experimental results obtained in synthetic and natural rock systems. The significance of water for the formation, intrusion, and crystallization of granitic magmas forms an important part of the book. Emphasizing experimental aspects, the work provides the reader with an understanding of the evolution of granites, which is the most important type of rock of the continental crust.
