Field Geology of High-Grade Gneiss Terrains

Author: Cees W Passchier; John Stuart Myers; A Kröner
Publisher: Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 1990.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
This is the first textbook on structural geology aimed primarily at the interpretation of high-grade gneiss terrains. The authors outline some of the more commonly seen structural features, suggest how they can be analysed and interpreted, and explain which sampling technique for petrology, geochemistry and geochronology will give the best results. The text is lavishly illustrated with line drawings and photographs,  Read more...
