      D B Clarke has succeeded in filling a niche in petrology of granitoid rocks, and has the rare ability to make the book spring to life. At the price it represents good value for money, and is a recommended purchase for any serious student of geology and any researcher interested in the current status of petrology of granitoid rocks.5/5(2).   A granitoid meets two criteria: (1) it is a plutonic rock that (2) has between 20 percent and 60 percent quartz. Plutonic rocks cooled at depth very slowly from a hot, fluid state. A sure sign Author: Andrew Alden.

Granitoid rocks of a wide range of Palaeoproterozoic ages (including ages around Ma) are present in the north-western part of the Borborema province (Dos Santos et al., ), and it is suggested that much of the sediment that formed samples 30, 39 and BAG 1 was derived from sources now incorporated into the Borborema province Cited by: D B Clarke has succeeded in filling a niche in petrology of granitoid rocks, and has the rare ability to make the book spring to life.

Rubidium, strontium, and strontium isotopic data for a suite of granitoid rocks from the Basin and Range province, (). Sedimentary tectonics and glacial record in the Windermere Supergroup, Author: Marjorie Levy and Nicholas Christie-Blick. Statistical summary A comparison of the U and Th values for granitic rocks from the Basin and Range province with similar data from other areas (Table III) shows that the mean values for U and Th in the Basin and Range granites are not notably high.

However, individual values for the Basin and Range granites do show a rather wide by: 5. Data on the experimental partial melting of common crustal rocks suggest that high-K, I-type granitoid magmas can be derived only from the partial melting of hydrous, calc-alkaline to high-K calc.

Whole-rock 5l sO is lowest in the hornblende-bearing facies ( to per mil) and highest in the muscovite-bearing facies ( to per mil); the level of variation is pluton dependent. It probably formed through anatexis of late Precambrian pelitic rocks.

The granitoid rock exposed in the Young Canyon-Kious Basin area is Tertiary (32 m.y.). Most of this intrusive has been cataclastically deformed as a result of late (18 m.y.) movement on the overlying Snake Range Cited by: Rubidium, strontium, and strontium isotopic data for a suite of granitoid rocks from the basin and range province, Arizona, California, Nevada, and Utah.
