It includes a new chapter on joints and veins, additional examples from around the world, stunning new field photos, and extended online resources with new animations and exercises. The book's practical emphasis, hugely popular in the first edition, features applications in the upper crust, including petroleum and groundwater geology, highlighting the importance of structural geology in exploration and exploitation of petroleum and water resources.
Carefully designed full-colour illustrations work closely with the text to support student learning, and are supplemented with high-quality photos from around the world. Examples and parallels drawn from practical everyday situations engage students, and end-of chapter review questions help them to check their understanding. Updated e-learning modules are available online www.
Numerous color photographs and figures clearly illustrate concepts, while showing the inherent beauty of structures in the field. This is a book that cannot help but inspire students. Both the book and the accompanying online resources have been extended with new topics and the animated e-modules are a fantastic extra teaching resource. It is extensively updated and beautifully illustrated with predominantly color photographs and sketches reflecting classic, global examples. The 22 chapters treat the principles of strain, stress, and rheology; brittle and ductile deformation processes and their resultant structures; principal tectonic regimes, salt tectonics, map balancing, and restoration; an original chapter on joints and veins; and an overview of deformation, including intrusive, metamorphic, radiogenic dating, and P-T-t path data.
The accompanying online e-modules provide a superb supplemental learning resource. The book's practical approach to potential economic applications with oil, gas, and groundwater enhance its value to students and practicing professionals This book is an ideal text for undergraduate geology programs and is a must for every serious student of Earth science.
It will also serve as an excellent, up-to-date refresher course for any active geologist. McCallum, Choice 'Several years after the publication of the first edition, the new version [of Structural Geology] turns out to be even better.
The most important part of any educational book is to awake an interest on the reader's part and sustain it, on any given topic, without compromises as to content. I find such a potential in the present volume Nothing less. Everyone in need of structural geology - and that's quite a few of us - will certainly find this book very useful.
There is a good balance between text and figures, and the figures are very good, be it the photos, maps, graphics or principle sketches. It is simply a pleasure to read this book. Seldom have we seen such a user-friendly textbook. Fossen is to be applauded for crafting a unique, high-caliber, and accessible undergraduate textbook on structural geology This book will likely get a lot of use; it is well written and priced right It should prove to be a valuable resource for students and instructors alike.
Without a doubt, this is the case with this introductory structural geology work by Fossen. Most outstanding, the book provides a balance between soft rock and hard rock, discusses the field's relevance to basic and applied applications, and includes unparalleled illustrations and photos that are critical for instruction and understanding It is the most student- and instructor-friendly work this reviewer has seen.
Very seldom can one buy a book of this quality Containing numerous end-of-chapter problems, e-learning modules, and with stunning field photos and illustrations, this book provides the ultimate learning experience for all students of structural geology.
It will go straight onto my syllabus as the required text. I've already put a change order into our bookstore to change to it for my Structure class next Fall! It's awesome. It's both theoretical and practical Added to basket.

Structural Geology by Haakon Fossen
Published by Cambridge University Press Seller Rating:. About this Item: Cambridge University Press, Condition: Used; Very Good. Dispatched, from the UK, within 48 hours of ordering. Though second-hand, the book is still in very good shape.
The second edition of the Portuguese version of my book was printed a few months ago. A large number of flash animations occur in my e-modules, but they are tricky to get into PowerPoint presentations, which most of us use for presentation and teaching purposes. I ended up making gif-animations of most of them. Ductile shear zones are the results of strain localization in the crust, mostly the middle and lower crust where plastic deformation mechanisms govern. In connection with the release of the 2nd edition of Structural Geology, I am posting a series of geology pictures on the facebook page of the book. Here is one of the pictures:. We wanted to update and add a variety of things; boxes, replacing photos, adding a few illustrations, explaining some things better, etc.
