Structural analysis and synthesis a laboratory course in structural geology Stephen M. Rowland, Ernest M. Duebendorfer, Ilsa M. Schiefelbein.

By: Rowland, Stephen Mark [autor].
Contributor(s): Deubendorfer, Ernest M [autor] | Schiefelbein, Ilsa M [autor].
Publisher: Singapore Blackwell Publishing 2007Edition: 3rd Edition.Description: xi, 301 pages Ilustrations, figures 27 cm.Content type: Media type: Carrier type: ISBN: 9781405116527.Subject(s): Geología estructural -- Laboratorio, manuales | GeologíaDDC classification: 551.8078
Contents:
Attitudes of lines and planes. - - Outcrop patterns and structure contours. - - Interpretation of geologic maps. - - Geologic structure sections. - - Stereographic projection. - - Folds. - - Stereographic analysis of folded rocks. - - Parasitic folds, Axial-planar foliations, and superposed. - - Faults. - - Dynamic and kinematic analysis of faults. - - A structural synthesis. - - Rheologic models. - - Brittle failure. - - Strain measurement. - - Construction of balanced cross sections. - - Deformation mechanisms and microstructures. - - Introduction to plate tectonics.
Summary: This widely used, highly readable introduction to structural analysis is specifically designed to support the laboratory work of undergraduates in structural geology courses. Throughout the book, a geologic map from a mythical site, the bree creek quadrangle, is used to help students analyze various aspects of geologic structures exposed within this quadrangle, and ultimately to combine these analyzes into a grand synthesis. Guided by students? and instructor? suggestions, the authors have refined several exercises and added new ones for this third edition. In addition, every figure has been redrafted to improve clarity, and the Bree Creek Quadrangle map has been complied onto a single fold-out sheet. An instructor's manual is vailable on request from the publisher to assist the laboratory instructor in to use of the book.

Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

This widely used, highly readable introduction to structural analysis is specifically designed to support the laboratory work of undergraduates in structural geology courses.

The new third edition includes:

New and amended exercises and redrafted figures to improve clarity
A single fold-out map of the Bree Creek Quadrangle ? a mythical site used to help students analyze various aspects of the geologic structures exposed within this quadrangle and ultimately to develop a grand synthesis
A user-friendly spiral binding ideal for work in the lab or out in the field

An Instructor manual CD-ROM for this title is available. Please contact our Higher Education team at HigherEducation@wiley.com for more information.

Author notes provided by Syndetics

Stephen M. Rowland is a Professor of Geology at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. He began teaching a structural geology laboratory course as a PhD student at the University of California, Santa Cruz. The Bree Creek map and the core exercises in this book evolved from field exercises in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California.

Ernest M. Duebendorfer is a Professor of Geology at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff. His research focuses on Proterozoic accretionary tectonics and Cenozoic extensional tectonism in the western US. He has also published papers on contractional deformation in Antarctica, Australia, and California. He received his PhD from the University of Wyoming.

Ilsa M. Schiefelbein is a Senior Geologist currently employed by ExxonMobil Corporation in Houston, Texas. She received an MS at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas where she studied extensional tectonics in the Basin and Range Province and taught structural geology laboratories.
