This second edition ofAtlas of Structural Geologyfeatures a broad and inclusive range of high-quality mesoscale and microscale full-color photographs, descriptions, and captions related to the deformation of rocks and geologic structures.
It is a multicontributed, comprehensive reference that includes submissions from many of the world''s leading structural geologists, making it one of the most thorough and comprehensive references available to the geoscience community. All types of structures are featured, including those related to ductile and brittle shear zones, sigma and delta structures, mineral fish, duplexes and trapezoids, shear-related folds, and flanking structures in the mesoscale and microscale. This second edition features new and expanded coverage, including seismic-image interpretation, landslide deformations, flowing glacial structures, and more than 150 new full-color images to illustrate the geologic features.
A stunning collection of the world''s most beautiful and arresting geologic structures, this book is the ideal resource to illustrate key concepts in geology.
