Summary The book deals mainly with the petrography and mineralogy of the rocks of the oceanic crust, and with petrological and geochemical processes. Structural processes are described in as far as they help in the understanding of the general processes controlling the formation and evolution of the oceanic crust and lithosphere. The book includes numerous examples and case studies, and is written in a clear and readable style which will make it popular with students
