Description

This widely used, highly readable introduction to structural analysis is specifically designed to support the laboratory work of undergraduates in structural geology courses.

The new third edition includes:

  • New and amended exercises and redrafted figures to improve clarity
  • A single fold-out map of the Bree Creek Quadrangle – a mythical site used to help students analyze various aspects of the geologic structures exposed within this quadrangle and ultimately to develop a grand synthesis
  • A user-friendly spiral binding ideal for work in the lab or out in the field

An Instructor manual CD-ROM for this title is available. Please contact our Higher Education team at HigherEducation@wiley.com for more information.
