About the book

Granite is the most widespread of igneous rocks, underlying much of the continental crust. Field observations and fabrics of granitic rocks provide precious information about the history of the rocks. The processes of magma generation and emplacement must be clarified to understand the granite petrology and tectonics. Some lights will put on the clarification of the relation between tectonics, metamorphism and partial melting to determine characteristics of magma and nature of protoliths. Various geodynamic settings of granites are established using geochemical data. Granites are a major source of mineral ore deposits and many types of mineral deposits result from their magmatic and post-magmatic processes. The study of granitic rocks requires the integration of several approaches from petrology, geochemistry to tectonics that are intended to be examined in this book. All the information and granite problems aim to be addressed in this book to propose a model of magma genesis, the origin of granite and to define the tectonic evolution of its emplacement into the crust.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Kristina Kardum

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
