Metamorphic History of Gneiss Terrains
The local metamorphic history is an essential topic in the study of high-grade gneiss terrains. This chapter only deals with those aspects of the metamorphic history that can be studied in the field. We will briefly outline terminology, the methods which can be applied, and the difficulties involved. For more information we refer to textbooks such as Miyashiro (1975), Winkler (1976), Mason (1981), Best (1982), Vernon (1983), Spry (1986), Yardley (1989) and to the references given in the text.
