This book attempts to provide a useful and fairly complete discussion of the common graphic procedures used for solving problems in structural geology. Although written primarily for the undergraduate student, the book may also provide a convenient reference for the graduate student as well as the professional geologist.
Part I is intended to serve as a review of descriptive principles and an introduction to the interpretation of geologic maps and sections. Parts II and III deal with the quantitative graphic procedures which are essentially aspects of descriptive geometry applied to geologic problems. Although there is nothing particularly new added to this treatment, we believe that a book devoted only to this subject fills a definite gap encountered by the authors and probably others as well.
