Geological Structures is an easy-to-use, highly informative photographic field guide that introduces the great variety of geological structures to be found all around us. The authors' beautiful photography, extended captions and accessible text make interpreting and understanding geological structures simple, whether you're an amateur enthusiast keen to learn or a more experienced geologist.
The three main rock groups - igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary - and their related structures are each covered in detail, followed by sections focusing on folds and folding, faults and faulting, and unconformities.
Structures and related landforms are illustrated in more than 200 detailed colour photographs and their helpful captions assist with identification in the field.
Each geological account includes an indication of the structure's formation and provides useful information on how to identify and understand its distinguishing features.
