Metamorphic Petrology Report #3
Chapter 25, Q3: How can we combine metamorphic field gradients and the facies
concept to explore the sequence of facies that develop across a broader area?
Field gradients can be determined by examining mineral g

Chapter 21 Q2: What are the defining limits of metamorphism, and how is
metamorphism distinguished from diagenetic and igneous processes?
Metamorphism generally consists of changes in mineralogy in a rock through

Chapter 27 Q1: How can we apply the thermodynamic principles introduced in Chapter
5 to metamorphic reactions and mineral parageneses to better understand and
constrain the physical and chemical conditions of metamorphism?

Q1: What is the difference between a foliation and a lineation?
Put most simply a foliation is a planar fabric in a rock while lineations are lines in
the rock or a specific alignment of certain minerals in a rock. Howeve
