Metamorphic rocks are one of the three main types of rock. Originally comprising either igneous or sedimentary rocks, metamorphic rocks are the products of change by heat and pressure, often at great depths in the earth's crust, into a completely new form. One of the classic examples of the result of a metamorphic process is the transformation of sedimentary mudstone into slate.Introducing Metamorphism provides a succinct introduction to metamorphism. Ian Sanders explains how and why rocks change during metamorphic processes. He discusses the role of water in metamorphism and describes the different types of metamorphic processes including contact, shock and high pressure metamorphism and metamorphism in an orogenic belt.Copiously illustrated and written for those who wish to gain a clear understanding of metamorphic processes, Introducing Metamorphism is designed to make the processes that led to the formation of these rocks intelligible to its readers. Technical terms are kept to a minimum and are explained in a glossary.
Web developers did it to bring together multiple sources onto one internet page. Musicians and DJs followed by sampling songs from different genres to create new music. Now everyone is doing it: at work, at the weekends, in business. It's time for you, your business and your career to cash in on the mash-up. The days of being defined by a single job title are vanishing. In the new economy our core competences are increasing; we've gone plural, perfecting multiple skills that reflect the multiple talents we have to offer. Today we are witnessing the rise of the workplace 'mash-up' and the smart guys are creating new revenue streams with each new skill they add. At the same time they're making themselves highly desirable, better paid and carving out more fulfilling and authentic work lives. Mash-up! shows you how you can join in the game.
