About this book

This volume brings together the geochemical, geophysical and geodynamical approaches to study the processes active during ultrahigh-pressure (UHP) tectonics. The collection of papers explores our understanding of the creation, preservation, and exhumation of ultrahigh-pressure rocks. The book should be of interest to any earth scientist interested in ultrahigh pressure processes and the formation and modification of continental crust.
