Summary:When Serge Tomkeieff died in 1968 he had planned a very wide-ranging and comprehensive dictionary. The editors have omitted some sections (e.g. structure, meteorites) and considerably shortened others. Following the 612-page alphabetical listing (each definition ending with a classification number), there is a four-part synoptic table (General, Sedimentary, Metamorphic and Igneous terms). [R.A.H.]
Subjects:Dictionaries; Igneous rocks; Lexicons; Metamorphic rocks; Metasomatic rocks; Petrology; Sedimentary petrology; Sedimentary rocks
