Petrology is the branch of geology that studies the origin, composition, distribution and structure of rocks.
  • Institute of Geochemistry and Petrology at the ETH Zurich

    Focuses on isotope geochemistry and cosmochemistry, fluids and mineral deposits, magmatic petrology, experimental geochemistry and mineral physics, crystalline geology and experimental petrology, and petrology and geodynamics.

  • Journal of Petrology

    Electronic version of the printed journal, publishing peer-reviewed research papers in the broad field of igneous and metamorphic petrology. Offers abstracts and archives.

  • Laboratory for Crustal Petrology

    Focuses on the origin and evolution of the Earth’s crust, including the pressure-temperature-time-deformation history of crustal rocks and the processes of mass transfer within the crust during orogenesis, crust-mantle interactions, and secular change.

  • Petrology

    A journal of magmatic, metamorphic, and experimental petrology, mineralogy, and geochemistry. The journal offers comprehensive information on all multidisciplinary aspects of theoretical, experimental, and applied petrology.

  • The Society for Organic Petrology

    A society for scientists and engineers involved with coal petrology, kerogen petrology, organic geochemistry and related disciplines.
