However, in one case it has been shown (White et al. 2005) to correspond to an increase in the degree of partial melting caused by an influx of H2O, and in another to an influx of felsic magma (Greenfield et al. 1996). The coherence of the pre-anatectic structures that characterize metatexite migmatites is lost in diatexite migmatite. Therefore, the lithological units TERRAIN-SCALE MAPS Terrain-scale maps would be expected to reveal the distribution of partially melted rocks and make some distinction that differentiates higher grade migmatites from lower grade ones, and show the differences in the structural style and geometry between migmatites and the lower grade rocks and between higher grade and lower grade migmatites.
