  • Field Geology Illustrated, 2nd Edition

    This is one of our highly recommended books. Field Geology Illustrated, 2nd Edition is a reliable, in depth field reference for professional geologists, serious amateur geologists, and other environmental scientists. This entirely new second edition represents the first detailed, comprehensive book on field geology in 20 years. Richly illustrated with 688 high-quality photographs and 300 interpretative sketches, this 704-page book is printed on glossy paper to show important strucutural and textural features. Contents include marine geological surveys, plutonic rocks, volcanic rocks, continental deposits, marine deposits, deformed rocks (joints, faults, folds, cleavage) weathering processes and soils, ground water, mineral deposits, and the public land survey system. The iterpretative sketches pull out the detail which you'd normally miss in the photos.

    Field Geology Illustrated, 2n Edition 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 Illustrated 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.

  • BelOMO 10x Triplet Loupe Magnifier with BelOMO Woven Logo Lanyard

    BelOMO 10x Triplet Loupe Magnifier with Deluxe BelOMO Woven Logo Lanyard

    All new design for the lanyard. The lanyard can now be install and removed without tools.

    Softer design with double sided logo. Most lanyards have the logo on one side only.

    We sell a lot of loupes to customers who have lost their loupe in the field. Using a lanyard keeps the loupe handy and with you rather than sitting near that last rock you examined. Now.... where was that?

    Here is a heavy duty 3/4" nylon loupe lanyard with a quick release buckle. Disconnect the buckle when you don't need the neck lanyard. But don't set the loupe down and walk way!

    This lanyard may be used for any purpose but we've had it custom manufactured specifically for use with the BelOMO loupe. Open the buckle to remove and swing the BelOMO loupe open to remove to lanyard. Open the buckle, swing the loupe open, slip the the long side of the buckle around the post, close the buckle and close the loupe and the lanyard is installed.<
