Geological maps and their interpretation

By: Blyth, FGH (Francis George Henry) [autor]
Publisher: Great Britain Edward Arnold 1976Edition: 2nd. EditionDescription: 48 pages Ilustrations, figures, maps 21 cmContent type: Media type: Carrier type: ISBN: 0713125683Subject(s): Geología mapas | MapasDDC classification: 551.8022 Summary: Geology undergraduates who have had a basic introduction to map interpretatation and who now wish to progress to more advanced problems will find the 18 maps presented here an excellent source of challenging exercises. The maps, based on actual field areas, are arranged approximately in order of complexity and interpretational difficulty and cover a wide range of folded and faulted structures. Whilst all structural possibilities obviously cannot be covered, sufficient information is provided to familiarise students with the main types they are likely to encounter. Each map is accompanied by short notes, describing the main geological features shown, and a series of questions. Eight pages of supplementary notes explain, by the use of sections and block diagrams, the appearance of the more usual geological structures as they appear on geological maps. In this new edition all units in the text and the map contours and scales have been metricated, though where necessary imperial equivalents are still given. Several new diagrams and text changes ensure that the book will continue to be a useful and essential adjunct in courses for geology, civil engineering andgeography undergraduates.
