Contents Geophysical and Experimental Petrological Studies of the Earth's Interior -- Modelling of Metamorphic Textures with C-Space: Evidence of Pan-African High-grade Reworking in the Eastern Ghats Belt, India -- Orogenic Processes in Collisional Tectonics with Special Reference to the Himalayan Mountain Chain: A Review of Theoretical and Experimental Models -- Some Remarks on Melting and Extreme Metamorphism of Crustal Rocks -- Closure Temperature, Cooling Age and High Temperature Thermochronology -- Thermobarometry Gone Astray -- On Fluids in the Dynamic Earth -- Laboratory Measurements of Ultrasonic Wave Velocities of Crustal Rocks at High Pressures and Temperatures: Petrological Structure of Izu-Bonin-Mariana Arc Crust -- Seismic Imaging of the Mantle Discontinuities Beneath India: From Archean Cratons to Himalayan Subduction Zone -- Models for Constraining Thermal Structure of the Indian Crust -- Convection in the Earth's Mantle -- Post-perovskite Phase: Findings, Structure and Property
Summary This book encompasses several important papers related to the physics and chemistry of the Earth's crust, its metamorphic history as a function of pressure and temperature, and mode of melt generation in the crust. Experiments included relate to the causes of orogenic events associated with plate tectonic processes in the upper part of the mantle. Also discussed are phase transformation of mantle minerals and their correlation with respect to various seismic discontinuities
