This instructive, engaging, highly readable manual is intended for the laboratory portion of an undergraduate course in structural geology. Guided by students' and instructors' suggestions, Dr Stephen Rowland and his new co-author, Dr Ernest Duebendorfer, have refined various exercises for the second edition, and have added discussions of numerous topics, including axial planar foliations and the dip isogon methods of fold classification. There are also three new chapters on: balanced cross sections; deformation mechanisms, fault kinematics and microstructures; and plate tectonics.

This widely used, highly readable introduction to structural analysis is specifically designed to support the laboratory work of undergraduates in structural geology courses. Throughout the book, a geologic map from a mythical site, the Bree Creek Quadrangle, is used to help students analyze various aspects of the geologic structures exposed within this quadrangle, and ultimately to combine these analyzes into a grand synthesis. Guided by studentsrsquo; and instructorsrsquo; suggestions, the authors have refined several exercises and added new ones for this third edition. In addition, every figure has been redrafted to improve clarity, and the Bree Creek Quadrangle map has been compiled onto a single fold-out sheet. An instructorrsquo;s manual is available on request from the publisher to assist the laboratory instructor in the use of the book.About the Author:
Stephen M. Rowland is a Professor of Geology at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. He began teaching a structural geology laboratory course as a PhD student at the University of California, Santa Cruz. The Bree Creek map and the core exercises in this book evolved from field exercises in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California.
Ernest M. Duebendorfer is a Professor of Geology at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff. His research focuses on Proterozoic accretionary tectonics and Cenozoic extensional tectonism in the western US. He has also published papers on contractional deformation in Antarctica, Australia, and California. He received his PhD from the University of Wyoming.
Ilsa M. Schiefelbein is a Senior Geologist currently employed by ExxonMobil Corporation in Houston, Texas. She received an MS at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas where she studied extensional tectonics in the Basin and Range Province and taught structural geology laboratories.
