Geological Structures and Maps: A Practical Guide, Fourth Edition is a highly illustrated guide that introduces the skills of interpreting a geological map and relating it to the morphology of the most important types of geological structures. Photographs of structures are set alongside their representations on maps. The maps used in exercises have been chosen to provide all of the realism of a survey map without the huge amount of data present so that readers can develop skills without becoming overwhelmed or confused. In particular, emphasis is placed throughout on developing the skill of three-dimensional visualization that is important to the geologist. Thoroughly revised, and with more international examples, it is ideal for use by students and practicing geologists.
- Includes rich illustrations of geological structures and integrates them using patterns on geological maps
- Offers step-by-step methods for constructing geological cross sections
- Trains students on the skills essential for the successful interpretation of patterns and relationships depicted on geological maps
Geologists, geophysicists, exploration geologists; and students in mapping and engineering geology courses

"The book provides complete information on the structural features and geological maps and techniques in a simple language. Coloured Beld photographs, geological maps and line diagrams are of very high quality and help in visualizing the three-dimensional features. Worked examples help in solving the exercises provided. Problems at the end of each chapter help in self-study. The book is very much useful for undergraduate Geology and Civil Engineering students for understanding the fundamentals of structural geology. I recommend this book as a valuable resource for the libraries of universities and institutions having earth science as branch of study or for personal collection of students and researchers in the Beld of structural geology." --JESS
