About this book

Maryland has been called 'America in Minature' because the state embodies a wide range of our nation's landscape features. From sandy beaches on the Atlantic Ocean, across flat fields of the Coastal Plain on the Eastern Shore, to the rolling hills and tumbling rivers of the state's central counties, and concluding with the mountainous terrain of Western Maryland, the Free State's diverse scenery is a result of eons of geological activity.

Written for the interested layman or student with no specialized training, Maryland's Geology explains the basics of geological processes, and then shows how they worked to create Maryland's beautiful and fascinating landforms. A wealth of diagrams and maps clarify further a text peppered with enlightening analogies. Whether the discussion concerns the different types of weathering, for instance, or the basic kinds of faults or events of plate tectonics, the text and figures combine to help the reader understand how long-ago events produced what we see today.

Maryland's Geology not only focuses on the actual landforms and their underlying geology, but also describes the patterns of settlement, farming, mining, manufacturing, and transportation that are all results of the state's unique underlying structures
