This volume, a combination of undergraduate text and lab book, provides students with a step-by-step guide to solving geometric problems in structural geology. Updated to incorporate new material on stress, deformation, strain and flow, it emphasizes the underlying mathematics and provides numerous homework exercises for which solutions are available online.About the Author:
Don Ragan was educated at Occidental College, University of Southern California and at the University of Washington at Seattle, receiving his PhD in 1960. He spent a year as a Fulbright scholar at the University of Innsbruck, and later, with a National Science Foundation Fellowship, at Imperial College, London, where he received a Diploma of Membership in Geology (DIC). His teaching career at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks, and at Arizona State University has spanned a total of 34 years, and has focused on imbuing students with a thorough understanding of geometrical and analytical techniques in structural geology. His research interests centre on the role of structural settings in structure-making processes, including studies of Alpine peridotites, glacial ice and welded tuffs.
