3-D Structural Geology Summary

3-D Structural Geology: A Practical Guide to Quantitative Surface and Subsurface Map Interpretation by Richard H. Groshong

The book includes new material, in particular examples of 3-D models and techniques for using kinematic models to predict fault and ramp-anticline geometry. The book is geared toward the professional user concerned about the accuracy of an interpretation and the speed with which it can be obtained from incomplete data. Numerous analytical solutions are given that can be easily implemented with a pocket calculator or a spreadsheet.

3-D Structural Geology Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:

"In the second edition, material has been reorganized to follow more closely the typical workflowof the exploration geologist. ... 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. 144 (2), 2007)
