The understanding of Earth processes and environments over
geological time is highly dependent upon both the experience that
can only be gained through doing fieldwork, and the collection of
reliable data and appropriate samples in the field. This textbook
explains the main data gathering techniques used by geologists in
the field and the reasons for these, with emphasis throughout on
how to make effective field observations and record these in
suitable formats. Equal weight is given to assembling field
observations from igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rock types.
There are also substantial chapters on producing a field notebook,
collecting structural information, recording fossil data and
constructing geological maps. The volume is in a robust and handy
size, with colour coded chapters for ease of use and quick
reference in the field.

Geological Field Techniques is designed for students,
amateur enthusiasts and professionals who have a background in
geology and wish to collect field data on rocks and geological
features. Teaching aspects of this textbook include:



  • step-by-step guides to essential practical skills such as using
    a compass-clinometer, making a geological map and drawing a field
    sketch;

  • tricks of the trade, checklists, flow charts and short worked
    examples;

  • over 200 illustrations of a wide range of field notes, maps and
    geological features;

  • appendices with the commonly used rock description and
    classification diagrams;

  • a supporting website hosted by Wiley Blackwell.
