Contenidos parciales:
Preface.-- Geological map symbols.-- Uniformly dipping beds.-- Folding.-- Faulting.-- Unconformity.-- Igneos Rocks.-- Folding with cheavage.-- Further Reading.
Resumen: This highly illustrated student guide introduces the skills of interpreting a geological map and relating it to the morphology of the most important types of geological structure. Thoroughly revised, and with more international examples, it is ideal for use by students with a minimum of tutorial supervision. 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 students 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.
