Product Description

Review

'… 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

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.

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!

The text is well illustrated and this is a Physical analysis of Geology, since Holmes Principles that is a good action, there a many specific structural texts such as petroleum geology Arabia, but this is welcome, if Norwegian oriented, which means the structures early Cambrian are somewhat poorly assessed a very poor map at 361, but a very good map on North Sea salts. You cannot leave the Cambrian dome and melagne slides off a Caledonian transect. So that process is incomplete. There is also a suggestion that the USA made side shear faults, that hardly needs comment, it is not necessary to lay fame to people, we all know Basin and Range work and it is a derivation of fracture geology UK and Alps, not its origin, physically and Science, and incomplete as are Africa and Australia in other works and we all know Forest Hydrology USA, they did not invent and progressed it partly with UK Austria etc. So the physics and principles and the diagrams are well met to the subject, it is up to date and does attempt a general thesis and debunks some myths. It just needs a few suggestions removed and completions of works added that explain the features. A book I would have expected from Norwegian source knowing the literature, blinkered somewhat by oil search and local slips. Read and be careful and it is fine but all Geology requires other literature as the rock mass lithology, petrology and overturned strata are complex issues. None of us can provide a detailed complete world review, a fault of most general USA publications, again Cambridge Press has fallen into the rift, the editors should have referred those issues back for completion, typical. As yet Scotland has to be surveyed in the north, Assynt for example does not explain Torridon, Dartmoor, the east and Atholl north east yet to be surveyed.Read more ›
