This book encompasses several important papers related to the physics and chemistry of the Earth's crust, its metamorphic history as a function of pressure and temperature, and mode of melt generation in the crust. Experiments included relate to the causes of orogenic events associated with plate tectonic processes in the upper part of the mantle. Also discussed in this book are phase transformation of mantle minerals and their correlation with respect to various seismic discontinuities.
