Geology in the Field


Geology in the Field

Description

This book features information not found in other field geology texts, including identification and modern classification of rocks, means of recognizing and interpreting primary structures in rocks (which reveal their origin), coverage of engineering geologic maps, and recognition of recently active faults. The book follows the typical sequence of a student's experience in learning field work - starting with the first observation of an outcrop and proceeding to methods of measurement and mapping, ending with a preparation of a full geologic report.
