The third edition of this versatile manual now includes chapters on geologic structures, topographic maps, geologic maps and earthquakes. These sections have been completely rewritten and those on igneous rocks, sedimentary rocks, metamorphic rocks and landforms have been significantly revised. Full-color foldout maps accompany each exercise.
The well-illustrated manual uses a hands-on approach to solving simple but realistic geologic problems and understanding earth materials. Exercises illustrate the two main aspects of this process: data collection through proper observation and measurement, and the interpretation of the data, using appropriate techniques and concepts.
