This book provides a comprehensive and up-to-date account of the fundamental aspects of structural geology with the emphasis on both classical concepts and modern developments. There is a detailed account of the techniques of geometrical analysis and a sound background to the principles of geological deformation and in-depth analysis of mechanisms of formation of geological structures. Many new features are included such as detailed discussions on rotation of rigid inclusions and passive markers, boudinage (including chocolate tablet boudins, foliation boudins and shear fracture boudins), structural implications of basement-cover relations and time-relation between crystallisation and deformation. The book presents the methods of structural analysis from microscopic to map scale, describes modern techniques used in field and laboratory and presents a balanced picture of modern structural geology as it emerges from combined field, experimental and theoretical studies.
