    Description

    The primary objective of this book is to present the basic concepts of structural geology to undergraduate students. A comprehensive coverage of important topics, such as folding, joints, faults, diaperism, unconformities, impact structures, igneous rocks and geophysical methods essential for both the geologist and geophysicist is incorporated. Emphasis is laid on mathematical methods especially while dealing with mechanical principles, mechanics of folding, jointing, plastic deformations, and geophysical methods. Laboratory exercises encourage students to analyze geological problems in a wider perspective. References at the end of each chapter render the book useful to advanced reader also.

    A GOOD BOOK FOR UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS

    It gives the basics, but is not detailed in any topic. One should follow another detailed one along with this for a good base formation in structural geology.
    Now as of GOJAVAS COURIER COD, it was very fast, the product been delivered almost 12 days earlier. Thanks to the retailer and flipkart.com for the non-defective, right book with such a protective packaging. I am very much satisfied with the book I received.
