Earth Structure: An Introduction to Structural Geology and Tectonics (Second Edition) by Ben A. van der Pluijm and Stephen Marshak | out of 5 stars Books Advanced Search New Releases Best Sellers & More Children's Books Textbooks Textbook Rentals Best Books of the Month of results for Books: Science & Math: Earth Sciences: Geology: Structural. Drawing Geological Structures provides undergraduate as well as graduate and practicing geologists with a thorough, step-by-step practical guide to the art of geological drawing. Beginning with the basics, the book covers thin sections, sample sections, samples and geological stereograms. Geologic structures are usually the result of the powerful tectonic forces that occur within the earth. These forces fold and break rocks, form deep faults, and build mountains. Repeated applications of force—the folding of already folded rocks or the faulting and offsetting of already faulted rocks—can create a very complex geologic picture that is difficult to interpret.

These books are used by students of top universities, institutes and colleges. Engineering geology is the application of the geology to engineering study for the purpose of assuring that the geological factors regarding the location, design, . For this section, you are going to make very simple drawings of real structures. Use the computers or a text book to look up the following: normal fault, reverse fault, strike-slip fault, detachment fault, anticline, and syncline. You need to label each of your drawings with the name of the type of geologic structure for your own reference. (A) Geological structures are represented by one or more lines or planes. (B) A line can be defined in three-dimensional space by its angle with three orthogonal axes. The book provides unique links to industry applications in the upper crust, including petroleum and groundwater geology, which highlight the importance of structural geology in 5/5(5).

When more beds of sediment are laid down on top, the structures come to resemble a sandwich or a pile of pages in a book, and this stratified structure is known as “bedding.” Bedding and other geological layers and planes that are not horizontal are said to dip, which is the slope of a geological surface. From exploring the basic principles of geology to starting a rock and mineral collection, The Practical Geologist is the perfect introduction to the world of earth science. Beginning with a history of the earth's formation and development, this book explores the substances that compose the planet, movements within the earth, the surface effects of weather and water, and underground landscapes/5(91). The book describes the nature and preparation of geological maps, and then covers topics such as solid and drift maps, geological boundaries, sections, and the use of symbols. The book explains sedimentary rocks, outcrop patterns, and the topographic representation of geological structures. Atlas of Structural Geology features a broad and inclusive range of high-quality meso- and micro-scale full-color photographs, descriptions, and captions related to the deformation of rocks and geologic structures.. It is a multi-contributed, comprehensive reference that includes submissions from many of the world’s leading structural geologists, making it the most .
