Ebook on Geological Mapping

This book is a basic guide to field techniques used in geological mapping. It
is meant to be kept in camp with you and even carried in your rucksack in the
field. In addition, because no piece of geological mapping can be considered
complete until the geology has been interpreted and explained, chapters are
provided on drawing cross-sections; on preparing and presenting ‘fair copy’
maps; and on presenting geological diagrams from your fieldwork suitable
for inclusion in your report. A report explaining the geology is an essential
part of any field project and a brief chapter on the essentials for writing
and illustrating it concludes this book. Some emphasis, too, is given to field
sketch-mapping because many reports lack those large-scale detailed maps
of small areas which can often explain complex aspects of the geology that
cannot be shown on the scale of the field map being used, and which are
difficult to describe in words. Attention is also given to field notebooks which
are, in many cases, deplorable.
It is assumed that readers of this book have already had at least one year of
university or equivalent geology, and have already been told what to look for
in the field. Geological mapping cannot, however, be taught in lectures and
the laboratory: it must be learnt in the field. Unfortunately, only too often,
trainee geologists are left largely to their own devices, to sink or swim, and to
learn to map for themselves with a minimum of supervision on ‘independent’
mapping projects. It is hoped that this book will help them in that task.
