This book has grown out of a need to teach fundamental, practical aspects of structural geology to undergraduate and postgraduate students in the earth sciences and they have written to provide a basic text at undergraduate university level. We have tried to assemble a comprehensive account of such basic techniques as could be the foundation of a practical and theoretical course in the analysis of tectonic structures, stress and strain. Volume 1 covers the principles of deformation, and Volume 2 applies these principles specifically to the analysis of folds and fractures.
@introbul:Key Features @bul:* Provides a unique practical introduction to structural geology for students * Uses over 220 clear line figures * Lavishly illustrated throughout with 107 high quality photographs showing features of naturally deformed rocks over a range of scale—aerial photographs, field photographs and photomicrographs * Starts each session with the formulation of a problem and presentation of any essential background or necessary mathematical techniques * Gives graded problems with solutions fully discussed in the text drawing out key features of the methods used * Provides 22 working diagrams for use is problem solving
Advanced undergraduate and graduate students studying geology.
