    About this book. Geological Structures is an easy-to-use, highly informative photographic field guide that introduces the great variety of geological features to be found all around us. The authors' beautiful photography, extended captions and accessible text make interpreting and understanding geological structures simple whether you're an expert geologist or an amateur enthusiast keen to.   Folds are geologic structures created by plastic deformation of the Earth’s crust. To understand how folds are generated, take a piece of paper and hold it up with a hand on each end. Apply compressional forces (push the ends towards each other). You have just created a fold (bent rock layers).

It is a perfect introduction to mapping for students of geology, engineering geology and civil engineering. Geologic structures are usually the result of the powerful tectonic forces that occur within the earth. These forces fold and break rocks, form deep faults, and build mountains. Repeated applications of force—the folding of already folded rocks or the faulting and offsetting of already faulted rocks—can create a very complex geologic picture that is difficult to interpret.

Structural Geology is a groundbreaking reference that introduces you to the concepts of nonlinear solid mechanics and non-equilibrium thermodynamics in metamorphic geology, offering a fresh perspective on rock structure and its potential for new interpretations of geological evolution.

This book stands alone in unifying deformation and. Several authors contributed to this book, and it starts off with a general introduction to the geology and various land features of Kansas.

Geologic Structures in Kansas, continued Darton's Arch (47) The Cambridge anticline, extending from southeastern Gove County northward along the eastern edge of Decatur County and into Nebraska, sometimes is called Darton's arch.

It has been given this non-geographic name because it was shown on maps made by N. Darton and published in   INTRODUCTION. Geologic structures such as faults and folds are the architecture of the earth’s crust. Geologic structures influence the shape of the landscape, determine the degree of landslide hazard, bring old rocks to the surface, bury young rocks, trap petroleum and natural gas, shift during earthquakes, and channel fluids that create economic deposits of metals such as gold and silver.
