From the Publisher:

This practical guide makes field work vastly more rewarding by showing how to describe, measure, and record rock structures firsthand. Text offers the guidance necessary to perform detailed mapping and analysis of structural features which yields a 3-D geological map. It is then possible to assess the stresses (dynamics) and movement patterns (kinematics) which rocks have undergone, and to evaluate the processes by which they were formed. Emphasis is on accuracy, detail, and interpretation. Chapters cover mapping techniques, fold structures, foliations, linear structures, faults, joints, veins, stylolites, polyphase deformation, and interpretation and analysis. Includes tables of field procedures for all major structural elements. Appendixes cover real and apparent dip, thickness and exaggeration, and strain measurements.
