About this book
This work summarizes important aspects relating to layered intrusions. Each chapter is a complete review of a theme of specific geological intrusion. The first part of the book covers the general principles and processes which apply to all intrusions. Those chapters on individual intrusions concentrate on factual information. A detailed full-colour geological map of the Skaergaard intrusion is also included.
