The Field Guide to Geology, Updated Edition tells the fascinating story of the Earth in a vivid, engaging fashion. Covering a variety of topics, the book includes information on how matter, stars, and the solar system evolved; how the Earth acquired its shape and surface; the structures of the Earth's crust; the major forms of igneous rock and the processes by which all rocks are created; the relationship between soil and rock erosion and the flow of rivers; and the effect of ice and wind on the Earth's surface
Featuring more than 500 two-color maps, charts, and other illustrations, comprehensive appendixes on geologists and their accomplishments, a worldwide listing of geologic displays, and a bibliography, the gook is a fine introduction for readers to understand the course of the Earth's evolution.
Field Geology was designed to serve as a field reference to aid in recognizing, interpreting, and describing geologic features at the outcrop. Emphasis is on the study of mesocopic features that can be viewed at outcrop scale rather than large structures or landscapes. This book is not an exhaustive or comprehensive treatise on the subject of field geology, but instead cover the information necessary to understand and describe most outcrops...
Field Geology should be useful as a complementary text for any field-related geoscience course such as physical geology, field geology, petrology, and structural geology. The detailed descriptions, illustrations and photographs of geologic features in their field setting will be particularly useful (AG: on a field trip, vacation, or) where field trips are not feasible.
This book is also intended for anyone who needs a good basic review of field geology including graduate students preparing for field mapping, professional geologists who wish to bring their skill up to date quickly and easily and even serious amateur geologists (AG: We believe this is useful to anyone interested in geology in the field!)Self study will be particularly rewarding because an interpretative sketch and detailed description is included with each photograph.
Derived from the world-renowned McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and
Technical Terms, Sixth Edition, this vital reference offers a wealth
of essential information in a portable, convenient, quick-find format. Whether
you're a professional, a student, a writer, or a general reader with an interest
in science, there is no better or more authoritative way to stay up-to-speed
with the current language of geology and mineralogy or gain an understanding
of its key ideas and concepts.
Written in clear, simple language understandable to the general reader, yet
in-depth enough for scientists, educators, and advanced students, The McGraw-Hill
Dictionary of Geology & Mineralogy, Second Edition:
Here are minerals from the United States, including mines in New Jersey, New York, Arizona, and California as well as beautiful and unusual minerals from Canada, Mexico, Greenland, Italy, Sweden, and other places. Included are values, a comprehensive resources section, plus helpful advice on caring for, collecting, and displaying minerals. The field of collecting fluorescent minerals is relatively new and this is one of the most complete references available.
The BelOMO 10x21mm(.85") triplet loupe magnifier has a viewing area of 0.65 inch (17mm), much larger than the Bausch & Lomb Hastings Triplet Magnifier. The 3 elements making up this achromatic triplet provide a bright and clear view. The 10x power magnification provides the best magnification to depth of field ratio and is the most popular power for a hand held magnifier. The housing and cover are machined metal and coated with a matte black finish and assembled using flathead screws. Belorussian Optical and Mechanical Association (BelOMA), makers of sights for guided weaponry, camera lenses, and other optical components manufacturers these loupes.
We highly recommend this loupe. This is the lens we use all the time.
Each BelOMO loupe we ship is custom treated to prevent the screws from coming loose with usage.
The Estwing Supreme 22 oz Pointed Tip Rock Hammer (E3-22P) is the standard, the rock pick carried by more geologist and rockhounds. Light enough to easily carry but heavy enough to crack some rock. Estwing Supreme quality in a one-piece forged pointed tip rock pick. Fully polished solid steel with the Estwing shock absorbing nylon-vinyl grip which has been tested to reduce shock by 50%.
|Head Width||7 inches|
|Overall Length||12 3/4 inches|
|Head Weight||22 ounces|
|Total Weight||2 pounds|
Estwing has introduced a new line of tools called Big Face. The Big Face tools have, wait for it, a big head. The head is widen at the end to make is safer and more effective when using the hammer for driving chisels. The extra 2 ounces on the Estwing Supreme Big Face 24 oz Pointed Tip Rock Hammer E6-24PC makes it a better hammer for smashing rocks or driving those chisels.
