Preface

Main content start

Fundamentals of Structural Geology is a textbook that emphasizes modern techniques of field data acquisition and analysis, the principles of continuum mechanics, and the mathematical and computational skills necessary to quantitatively describe, model, and explain the deformation of rock in Earth’s lithosphere and asthenosphere.

Although designed for students, this book also should be useful as a reference for researchers in structural geology, tectonics, geophysics, petroleum geology, rock mechanics, geotechnical engineering, and petroleum engineering.
