Book Description

15 July 2010 0521516641 978-0521516648 1
Lavishly illustrated in color, this textbook takes an applied approach to introduce undergraduate students to the basic principles of structural geology. The book provides unique links to industry applications in the upper crust, including petroleum and groundwater geology, which highlight the importance of structural geology in exploration and exploitation of petroleum and water resources. Topics range from faults and fractures forming near the surface to shear zones and folds of the deep crust. Students are engaged through examples and parallels drawn from practical everyday situations, enabling them to connect theory with practice. Containing numerous end-of-chapter problems, e-learning modules, and with stunning field photos and illustrations, this book provides the ultimate learning experience for all students of structural geology.

'… the structural geology text that I have long been waiting for … this text truly shows the application of structural geology to real life academic and industry problems. It will go straight onto my syllabus as the required text.' Professor Bruce Trudgill, Colorado School of Mines

'If you only buy one structural geology textbook - this is the one to get. It's both theoretical and practical … with excellent illustrations and thought-provoking examples.' Professor Rob Butler, University of Aberdeen

'Lavishly illustrated in color, this textbook takes an applied approach to introduce undergraduate students to the basic principles of structural geology … Containing numerous end-of-chapter problems, e-learning modules, and with stunning field photos and illustrations, this book provides the ultimate learning experience for all students of structural geology.' The Eggs EGU Newsletter (the-eggs.org)

'Gorgeous. Nothing less. Everyone in need of structural geology - and that's quite a few of us - will certainly find this book very useful. There is a good balance between text and figures, and the figures are very good, be it the photos, maps, graphics or principle sketches. It is simply a pleasure to read this book. Seldom have we seen such a user-friendly textbook.' GEO

'… Fossen is to be applauded for crafting a unique, high-caliber, and accessible undergraduate textbook on structural geology … beautifully illustrated, with excellent original color diagrams and with impressive color field photographs that are all keyed to locations and placed into geologic context. … This book will likely get a lot of use; it is well written and priced right. … an excellent, accessible introductory structural geology text that is admirably well illustrated and well written. It should prove to be a valuable resource for students and instructors alike.' EOS

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 13 Mar 2013
By Alex
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
If your studying or intending to study degree level structural geology then this text is the book for you. Concise and packed with excellent descriptions and examples and the bonus with having your own copy is you can mark up all the pages and text lines with your study notes ... Trust me .... You'll need to!

5.0 out of 5 stars Structural Geology by Haakon Fossen 9 July 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This structural geology textbook - at a very reasonable price - is a high quality presentation with frequent photographs, figures and graphs, all in colour, which make this book book fascinating & practical whilst at the same time being quite probing & analytical with the mechanics elements. Each chapter comes with a Summary & a Further Reading List and several review questions for the student. It provides an up to date, refreshing & comprehensive view on structural geology. The book is linked to a web-based resource with additional material. I studied engineering geology in the late 50's & I am continually impressed by the advances made in understanding geology in the past 50 years.
