Structural Geology : An Introduction to Geometrical Techniques, Paperback / softback Book

Structural Geology : An Introduction to Geometrical Techniques Paperback / softback



This combination of text and lab book presents an entirely different approach to structural geology.

Designed for undergraduate laboratory classes, it provides a step-by-step guide for solving geometric problems arising from structural field observations.

The book discusses both traditional methods and cutting-edge approaches, with emphasis given to graphical methods and visualization techniques that support students in tackling challenging two- and three-dimensional problems.

Numerous exercises encourage practice in using the techniques, and demonstrate how field observations can be converted into useful information about geological structures and the processes responsible for creating them.

This updated fourth edition incorporates new material on stress, deformation, strain and flow, and the underlying mathematics of the subject.

With stereonet plots and solutions to the exercises available online at, this book is a key resource for undergraduates, advanced students and researchers wanting to improve their practical skills in structural geology.
