Aim of SCMR
Many terms in metamorphic petrology are ambiguous or are used inconsistently.
In order to address this problem the aim of the SCMR is the preparation
and maintenance of a unified nomenclature scheme and to recommend definitions
which are widely acceptable and of international use.
Results of the SCMR
The SCMR has now completed its initial remit and has produced a series
of specialist recommendations and an associated glossary.
The SCMR welcomes comments on its recommendations. It also recognises
that the science continues to evolve and as new discoveries are made,
and new understandings develop, the terminology has to develop in parallel.
Suggestions on updates or improvements to the recommendations are welcome
and will be published as appropriate on this website. All comments
