About this book

This highly illustrated student guide introduces the skills of interpreting a geological map and relating it to the morphology of important types of geological structure. Thoroughly revised, and with more international examples, it should be suitable for use by students as a self-study textbook.

"This third edition of a well known introductory guide discusses from first principles the most important types of geological structures and their manifestation on geological maps. An ideal text for first year undergraduates and others wishing to acquire these skills."
- Aslib Book Guide

"Geological Structures and Maps is exactly what the title says – an introduction to the geometry of simple structures and what they look like on geologic maps [...] this book is refreshingly clear and to-the-point."
- Journal of Geological Education
