About this book

Geological Structures is an easy-to-use, highly informative photographic field guide that introduces the great variety of geological features 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 expert geologist or an amateur enthusiast keen to learn more. The three main rock groups – igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary – and their related structures are each covered in their own section, followed by sections focusing on folds and folding, faults and faulting, and finally unconformities. Structures and related landforms are illustrated in more than 200 of the authors' detailed colour photographs and their helpful captions assist with identification in the field. Each geological account includes a history of the structure's formation and provides useful information on how to identify and understand its distinguishing features.
