Detailed mapping and analysis of the structural features of rocks enable the 3D geometry of their structures to be reconstructed. The resulting evidence of the stresses and movement patterns which rocks have undergone indicates the processes by which they were formed, and allows evaluation of past deformations of the earth's crust. Written to show how one actually describes, measures and records rock structures such as folds and faults with the emphasis on accuracy, detail and on-going interpretation throughout, this handbook gives students and enthusiasts the practical information and guidance which allows their fieldwork to become vastly more rewarding.

"...the author is to be congratulated on producing such an excellent text. The whole range of mapping techniques that an undergraduate student will require are described and the book will still be immense help to post-graduates setting out on their research work. The book represents extremely good value and is thoroughly recommended."
--C.R.L. Friend, Mineralogical Magazine

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.
