Product Description

From the Back Cover

Geological mapping cannot be taught solely by means of lectures and laboratory classes–it must be learned in the field. Basic Geological Mapping is a concise guide to techniques used for constructing accurate geological maps, and is designed to be of greatest use in the field. Accurate geological maps are the basis of all geological work, and therefore no piece of geological mapping can be considered complete until the geology has been interpreted and explained. In addressing this, there are chapters within this field guide on drawing cross–sections, drafting and presenting ′fair copy′ maps, and on preparing geological diagrams from field work suitable for inclusion in reports. This revised and updated volume includes a new section on vegetational guides to underlying rocks and an appendix on the use of the plane table in geological mapping.

From a review of a previous edition "Among the principal merits of this book is that the author has managed to condense a substantial amount of information important to field geologists into just over 100 pages of very readable well–illustrated material. The book is a sturdily constructed paperback, modestly priced and of a compact size convenient for carrying in the field ... Basic Geological Mapping would serve as an excellent supplementary text for those wishing to learn the fundamentals of field work on their own." George C. Dunne, Journal of Geological Education --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
As an undergraduate doing my mapping dissertation I have found this book invaluable as an introductory text. It spans a broad range of relavant topics, and includes a useful practical guide to field equipment and techniques. Although it is a little brief in some sections I would certainly recommend it to other high flying academics

I it's a good book for beginners, it would be a good buy for anyone starting a degree in Geology or even Physical Geography.
