Abstract:

"Features a broad and inclusive range of high quality meso- and micro-scale color photographs, descriptions, and captions related to the deformation of rocks and geologic structures. Presents more than 250 high quality, color photographs, many of which are contributed by the world's most respected structural geologists; Features a broad range of morphological variations of geologic structures, making it the most up-to-date and inclusive reference of its kind; Aids researchers in developing mathematical and analogue models on the peculiarity and uniqueness of structures; Edited by a structural geologist with close to 15 years of experience in research/teaching. A multi-contributed reference containing submissions from many of the world's leading structural geologists. Atlas of Structural Geology, features all types of structures, including folds, structures related to ductile and brittle shear zones, sigma- and delta- structures, mineral fish, duplexes and trapezoids, and flanking structure. A stunning collection of beautiful and arresting geologic structures, Atlas of Structural Geology is the ideal aid for the retention and practical comprehension of key concepts in structural geology."--
