Description

Map Interpretation for Structural Geologists covers various topics, from deciphering topography using contour patterns to interpreting folds, faults, unconformities and dykes. By interpreting several types of maps, this book gives readers the confidence to solve difficult geologic questions related to map interpretation in the classroom and in the field. Interpreting geological and structural maps is an inseparable part of learning structural geology in the undergraduate curriculum and postgraduate development.

Key Features

  • Features approximately 30 full-color geological or structural maps and their solutions, from basic to the most complex
  • Includes content appropriate for undergraduate and graduate students and professional geoscientists alike
  • Presents a self-learning guide and teaching manual with minimum instruction required

Readership

Geology and geophysics students (undergraduate and graduate level) and exploration geologists, cartographers, geographers, geoscientists

Narayan Bose Author

Narayan Bose is a final year Ph.D. student at the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, where he did his M.Sc. in Applied Geology (2013). He received B.Sc. (Honors) in Geology from the Presidency College (Kolkata) in 2011 and secured 2nd rank in this program under the University of Calcutta. He is specialized in structural geological fieldworks and micro-structural studies especially related to ductile- and brittle shear zones. As a Teaching Assistant, he has been conducting structural geology fieldworks and practical classes for the Masters programmes in Applied Geology, Applied Geophysics and Petroleum Geoscience. He has also reviewed several manuscripts submitted in international journals, and has published a paper in the International Journal of Earth Sciences (Springer).
