Metamorphism

Changes in mineralogy
- Due to changes in T and P

How does it happen?


1) Contact metamorphism
- Through application of heat
Anywhere there is an intrusion
Igneous intrusions
- Contact very hot
Progressively cooler away from contact

2) Regional Metamorphism
- Through application of heat and pressure
Tectonic collision zones
Extreme pressure changes
Extreme temperature changes
o Across vast regions and volumes.mmm
