Geological Structures and Maps, Fourth Edition, is a highly illustrated guide that introduces the skills of interpreting a geological map and relating it to the morphology of the most important types of geological structures. Photographs of structures are set alongside their representations on maps. The maps used in exercises have been chosen to provide all of the realism of a survey map without the huge amount of data often present, so that readers can develop skills without becoming overwhelmed or confused. In particular, emphasis is placed throughout on developing the skill of three-dimensional visualization so important to the geologist. Thoroughly revised, and with more international examples, it is ideal for use by students and practicing geologists.
  • Includes rich illustrations of geological structures and integrates them using patterns on geological maps
  • Offers step-by-step methods for constructing geological cross sections
  • Trains students in the skills essential for the successful interpretation of patterns and relationships depicted on geological maps
