Field Geology Illustrated
Field Geology Illustrated Second Edition is intended as a detailed reference for courses in field geology and as a reference for professional geologists, serious amateur geologists, hydrologists, soil scientists, and other Earth scientists. This book assumes some formal course work in geology, but for those who have no previous education, Chapter 2 (Introduction to Rocks) provides a basic description and simplified classification of the various rock types. Also a detailed glossary of terms is included to facilitate an understanding of geologic terminology.\r
Field Geology Illustrated Second Edition primarily focuses on the recognition, interpretation, and description of geologic features and structures in the field. This is accomplished with 682 photographs and almost 300 interpretive sketches appearing in the 869 figures.
