Course Objectives The main goal of this course to understand the structure of the earth, magma, evolution of the magmas, magmatic possesses classification of the different magmatic rocks, petrographic features of the magmatic rocks. Classification and description of the crystallography and mineralogy are the first step for the samples.
Course Description Introduction to crystallography and mineralogy, history of mineralogy, description of crystals and minerals. Chemical features of minerals. Mineralogical variations (chemical variations, geometrical variations), mineral stability and mineral reactions. The physical properties of minerals, magnetic, electrical and thermal properties. Mineral descriptions (mineral description format, mineral formulas, mineral structures). Introduction to magmatic petrography, rock cycle concept, mineral and rock relationships, magma, crystallization of magma and the crystallization stages, emplacement of magma, classifications of magmatic rocks, magmatic textures, descriptions of different magmatic rock families. Introduction to metamorphic petrography, concept of metamorphism, metamorphic reactions, different types of metamorphism and metamorphic rocks types.
