Excerpt This book attempts to provide a useful and fairly complete discussion of the common graphic procedures used for solving problems in structural geology. Although written primarily for the undergraduate student, the book may also provide a convenient reference for the graduate student as well as the professional geologist.

Basic Methods of Structural Geology book. Read reviews from world’s largest community for readers. Complete coverage of all the basic topics of structura 4/5.

Description: State-of-the-art analysis of geological structures has become increasingly quantitative but traditionally, graphical methods are used in teaching. This innovative lab book provides a unified methodology for problem-solving in structural geology using linear algebra and computation.

Graphic treatment of problems in structural geology often provides a solution more simply than a formal mathematical approach. By choosing an appropriate scale, there is no difficulty in maintaining accuracy as high as the problem in hand justifies and the original data warrant.

C- sequently, the book provides quantitative structural methods and techniques that are designed for use with spreadsheets, mapping software, and three-dimensional c- puter-graphics programs. Everyone in need of structural geology - and that's quite a few of us - will certainly find this book very useful.

There is a good balance between text and figures, and the figures are very good, be it the photos, maps, graphics or principle sketches.

The book presents the methods of structural analysis from microscopic to map scale, describes modern techniques used in field and laboratory and offers a balanced picture of modern structural geology as it emerges from combined field, experimental and theoretical studies.

Reinhard Pflug. This concern for geometry includes the methods of describing and illustrating the form and orientation of geological structures, and the solution of various dimensional aspects of these structures.

This book attempts to fill a need for an introduction to the geometrical techniques used in structural geology. Accessible yet rigorous, this unique textbook demonstrates how to approach structural geology quantitatively using calculus and mechanics, and prepares students to interface with professional geophysicists and engineers who appreciate and utilize the same tools and computational methods to solve multidisciplinary problems.

New Theory of the Earth, is a book written by Don L. Anderson. This is an interdisciplinary advanced textbook on all aspects of the interior of the Earth and its origin, composition, and evolution: geophysics, geochemistry, dynamics, convection, mineralogy, volcanism, energetics and thermal history.

Structural geology is the study of the three-dimensional distribution of rock units with respect to their deformational histories. The primary goal of structural geology is to use measurements of present-day rock geometries to uncover information about the history of deformation in the rocks, and ultimately, to understand the stress field that resulted in the observed strain and geometries.

Engineering geology is the application of the geology to engineering study for the purpose of assuring that the geological factors regarding the location, design, construction, operation.Lavishly illustrated in color, this textbook takes an applied approach to introduce undergraduate students to the basic principles of structural geology.

The book provides unique links to industry applications in the upper crust, including petroleum and groundwater geology, which highlight the importance of structural geology in exploration and exploitation of petroleum and water resources.5/5(5).Structural Geology: Deformation of Rocks Geology Geology for Environmental Scientists.
