Maps of geological structures provide all of the realism of a survey map without the huge amount of data often present, so readers can develop or hone their skills without becoming overwhelmed or confused. In particular, emphasis is placed throughout on developing the skill of three-dimensional visualization so important to geologists. Authored by a master geologist with more than 40 years of experience in research and instruction Features more than 130 figures, diagrams, and illustrationsamany in full colorato highlight major themes and aid in the retention of key concepts Leads to a broad understanding of Earthas geology through the use of real and theoretical map Exercises conclude each chapter, making it an ideal tool for self-guided and quick studyFollow the instructions closely; although elementary, this is a key exercise. ... Follow the instructions and then return to Figure 7.1 to complete the section for yourself. ... Therefore, you may construct a stratum contour EF600 across the map .
