Structural geology : an introduction to geometrical techniques / Donal M. Ragan

By: Ragan, Donal M [Creador].
Publisher: Nueva York Cambridge University Press ©200Edition: 4th edition.Description: xvii, 602 páginas páginas ilustraciones, figuras 25 cm.ISBN: 9780521745833.Subject(s): Fallas (geologia) | Geotectonica | TopografíaDDC classification: 551.8
Contents:
Structural planes. - - Thickness and depth. - - Rotations. - - Vectors. - - Faults. - - Stress. - - Deformation. - - Flow. - - Tectonites. - - Drill hole data. - - Maps and cross sections. - - Block diagrams.
Summary: The book discusses both traditional methods and cutting-edge approaches, with emphasis given to graphical methods and visualization techniques that support students in tackling challenging two- and three-dimensional problems. Numerous exercises encourage practice in using the techniques, and demonstrate how field observations can be converted into useful information about geological structures and the processes responsible for creating them. This updated fourth edition incorporates new material on stress, deformation, strain and flow, and the underlying mathematics of the subject. With stereonet plots and solutions to the exercises available online at www.cambridge.org/ragan, this book is a key resource for undergraduates, advanced students and researchers wanting to improve their practical skills in structural geology.

Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

This combination of text and lab book presents an entirely different approach to structural geology. Designed for undergraduate laboratory classes, it provides a step-by-step guide for solving geometric problems arising from structural field observations. The book discusses both traditional methods and cutting-edge approaches, with emphasis given to graphical methods and visualization techniques that support students in tackling challenging two- and three-dimensional problems. Numerous exercises encourage practice in using the techniques, and demonstrate how field observations can be converted into useful information about geological structures and the processes responsible for creating them. This updated fourth edition incorporates new material on stress, deformation, strain and flow, and the underlying mathematics of the subject. With stereonet plots and solutions to the exercises available online at www.cambridge.org/ragan, this book is a key resource for undergraduates, advanced students and researchers wanting to improve their practical skills in structural geology.

Include appendix and index. - - Appendix A. Descriptive geometry. - - B. Spherical trigonometry.

Include bibliographical references.
