The Techniques of Modern Structural Geology: Strain Analyses / Edition 1 available in Paperback
- Pub. Date:
- Elsevier Science
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.
• 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 scaleaerial 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
