Editorial Reviews


"... the structural geology text that I have long been waiting for ... this text truly shows the application of structural geology to real life academic and industry problems. It will go straight onto my syllabus as the required text." Professor Bruce Trudgill, Colorado School of Mines

"Evaluate it? ... I've already put a change order into our bookstore to change to it for my Structure class next Fall! It's awesome." Prof. Terry Naumann, University of Alaska

"If you only buy one structural geology textbook--this is the one to get. It's both theoretical and practical ... with excellent illustrations and thought-provoking examples." Professor Rob Butler, University of Aberdeen

"Gorgeous. Nothing less. Everyone in need of structural geology--and that's quite a few of us--will certainly find this book very useful. There is a good balance between text and figures, and the figures are very good, be it the photos, maps, graphics or principle sketches. It is simply a pleasure to read this book. Seldom have we seen such a user-friendly textbook." - GEO

'... Fossen is to be applauded for crafting a unique, high-caliber, and accessible undergraduate textbook on structural geology ... beautifully illustrated, with excellent original color diagrams and with impressive color field photographs that are all keyed to locations and placed into geologic context. ... This book will likely get a lot of use; it is well written and priced right. ... an excellent, accessible introductory structural geology text that is admirably well illustrated and well written. It should prove to be a valuable resource for students and instructors alike.' EOS

"Once in a while, an extraordinarily superior book appears in the midst of other good books on a subject. Without a doubt, this is ht case with this introductory structural geology work by Fossen. Most outstanding, the book provides a balance between soft rock and hard rock, discusses the field's relevance to basic and applied applications, and includes unparalleled illustrations and photos that are critical for instruction and understanding ... It is the most student- and instructor-friendly work this reviewer has seen. Essential." CHOICE

"The illustrations are plentiful and outstanding in multiple colors. Very seldom can one buy a book of this quality..." Richard Jackson, Environmental and Engineering Geoscience

'Several years after the publication of the first edition, the new version [of Structural Geology] turns out to be even better. The most important part of any educational book is to awake an interest on the reader's part and sustain it, on any given topic, without compromises as to content. I find such a potential in the present volume ... this textbook is definitely a high value proposition for anyone who embarks on or continues his/her adventures in structural geology and tectonics.' Wojciech Stawikowski, Geologos

Book Description

Lavishly illustrated with color photos and diagrams, this textbook takes an applied approach to introduce undergraduate students to the basic principles of structural geology. The book provides unique links to industry applications, including petroleum and groundwater geology, and reinforces student learning through end-of-chapter problems and e-learning modules.
