By Bruce E. Hobbs, Alison Ord
Structural Geology is a groundbreaking reference that introduces you to the innovations of nonlinear reliable mechanics and non-equilibrium thermodynamics in metamorphic geology, delivering a clean viewpoint on rock constitution and its strength for brand new interpretations of geological evolution.
This booklet stands by myself in unifying deformation and metamorphism and the advance of the mineralogical materials and the buildings that we see within the box. This displays the thermodynamics of platforms now not at equilibrium in the framework of recent nonlinear reliable mechanics. The thermodynamic method permits a few of the mechanical, thermal, hydrological and chemical tactics to be conscientiously coupled in the course of the moment legislations of thermodynamics, constantly resulting in nonlinear habit. The publication additionally differs from others in emphasizing the consequences of this nonlinear habit with appreciate to the improvement of the various, complicated, even fractal, variety of constructions in deformed metamorphic rocks.
Building at the basics of structural geology by means of discussing the nonlinear approaches that function in the course of the deformation and metamorphism of rocks within the Earth's crust, the book's options support geoscientists and graduate-level scholars know the way those strategies keep an eye on or effect the constructions and metamorphic fabrics―providing functions in hydrocarbon exploration, ore mineral exploration, and architectural engineering.
- Authored via of the world's most desirable specialists in structural geology, representing greater than 70 years of expertise in study and instruction
- Nearly three hundred figures, illustrations, operating examples, and images strengthen key thoughts and underscore significant advances in structural geology
