Geological Structures is an easy-to-use, highly informative photographic field guide that introduces the great variety of geological structures which are found all around us. The authors' beautiful photography (more than 200 detailed color photographs), extended captions and accessible text make it easy to identify features in the field, interpret and understand geological structures, whether you are an amateur enthusiast keen to learn or a more experienced geologist.

The three main rock groups—igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary—and their related structures are each covered in detail, followed by sections focusing on folds and folding, faults and faulting, and unconformities.
