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.
- "... 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
