About the book

Igneous petrology is one of the traditional fields of geology that went through a dramatic evolution in recent decades. Not only an unprecedented number of new techniques became an everyday tool to understand the generation and evolution of magma to be igneous rocks but also the increased resolution of techniques that became widely available allowed us to look deeper into the timescale of petrogenetic events. These recent advances particularly became more commonly accepted, even routine methods to employ in understanding the magma generation's Spatio-temporal aspects both in mineral level and very short time scales. Igneous petrology gradually claimed its place in various applied volcanology researches, including volcanic hazard studies.

In this book, we call contributors to share their understanding of the role of modern petrology particularly from the aspects of the emergence of new and advanced technologies and the practicality that igneous petrology can provide to look at as a powerful tool to trace magmatic processes as part of a source-to-surface magmatic - volcanic system. We call contributors who look at the magmatic-volcanic systems closely associated with geodynamics and lithosphere physical processes. Research outputs that aim to show the new advances in understanding the melt propagation processes within the lithosphere, its physicochemical aspect, and link to geophysical methods to record them are particularly welcomed in this book.

This book will intend to provide a set of cutting-edge research outputs to demonstrate the current trends within igneous petrology and its link to other fields of geology. Our aim will be that this not only shows the fast-developing igneous petrology through specific researches but also providing a book that can be used as a reference work later on.
