Dictionary of geological terms by American Geological Institute( Book )
58 editions published between 1957 and 1984 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,082 libraries worldwide
From Aa toZweikanter, this popular dictionary has now been revised and updated. This edition includes over 1,000 new terms plus: -accurate definitions without technical jargon - many word origins commonly used abbreviations -a geologic time and life chart. The definitions in this book are drawn largely from the autoritative 36,000-term Glossary Of Geology, to which nearly 150 specialists from all fields of the geosciences contributed. Both the Glossary and this Dictionary were prepared as a service of the American Geological Institute, a federation of geoscience societies united to provide information to the science community and the public
Glossary of geology by Robert Latimer Bates( Book )
27 editions published between 1972 and 1997 in English and held by 1,207 libraries worldwide
"The terms in the Glossary have appeared in recognized publications and reflect, in general, North American usage, although some British and Australian terminology is included. Colloquialisms are, for the most part, restricted to those of the USA. Old and obsolete terms are defined when possible(and are distinguished as such), since the older geologic literature contnues to be a valuable research tool. Foreign-language terms are included only if they appear as such in the English-language literature."--Introd. Emphasis is on current or preferred meaning. Some definitions include references to the literature, comparable terms, synonyms, and etymology. Bibliography, p. A1-A52

"One of the best-kept secrets in geology is this handy compilation of geological information. The essential reference for geoscientists in the field, office, or lab, The Geoscience Handbook provides quick reference for the key metrics and concepts, as well as short tutorials on subjects that may not be familiar to all geoscientists. The Handbook covers diverse subjects, from geophysics to geologic map symbols to GPS usage, and everything in between! The Handbook uses color photos when possible to better illustrate geology in the real world. New to this printing is the revised 2009 Geologic Timescale published by the Geological Society of America. Each book comes with a handy fieldwork ruler and a grain-size scale, both supplied courtesy of the Society for Sedimentary Geology."--Publisher's description
