Interpreting. This is a handbook of practical techniques for making the best possible interpretation of geological structures at the map scale and for extracting the maximum amount of information from surface and subsurface maps.

The 3D structure is defined by internally consistent structure contour maps and cross sections of all horizons and faults. Structural Geology & Map Interpretation is distributed free of cost, as an e-book, and anyone may freely use or further disseminate this textbook.

No person or institution shall charge any cost for the use or distribution of this e-book. This book is intended for self-study, use in university courses and/or professional training.5/5(21). The ability to correctly interpret the relationships displayed on a geological map relies heavily on the knowledge of the basic principles of structural geology.

Geological maps show the distribution of various types of bedrock in an area and consist of a topographic map that is shaded, or colored to show where different rock units occur at or.

Tectonics is a closely related term to structural geology. Originally, tectonics referred to the mathematical and geometrical description of geological structures at quite small scales. Structural Geology & Map Interpretation Home Courses Structural Geology & Map Interpretation Subjects Book and Appendices Next to the seventeen chapters presented here, the book Structural geology & map interpretation includes four appendices.

Suitable for lab courses in structural geology as well as field geology work, Spencer describes representative examples of features found on geologic maps and outlines procedures for interpretation and projection.

The book has its place on the shelves of exploration geologists and some structural geology researchers. this is a useful and well produced book." (Nigel Woodcock, Geological Magazine, Vol.

(2), )Brand: Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg. An Interpretation article is not required to contain an interpretation; it only has to help advance the practice of interpretation.

Likewise an article may focus on interpretation of a data set if this provides significant new insight on the geology of an area or on the workflow used.
