  • Estwing Geo/Paleo Pick GP100

    Estwing Geo/Paleo Pick GP100

    The famous Estwing Geo/Paleo Pick GP100 has made a grand reentry after being out of production for several years. The handle has been beefed up to make the unit even stronger. It is 25 inches long with a total weight of 3 pounds. Painted steel with a soft vinyl grip. The light weight but great strength of this makes it a great field tool for any geologist or rockhound.

    Not only is this a great digging tool but I use mine to help me navigate the steep slopes of mine tailings. Jab the tip in and pull yourself up then use the hoe end to cut a quick shelf to work from.

  • Roadside Geology of Oregon

    Until about 200 million years ago, the western margin of North America lay to the east, along the present Idaho border, and a broad coastal plain spread westward into Oregon. The rest of the state was ocean floor. Then the continent began moving slowly westward away from Europe and the floor of the Pacific Ocean began sliding beneath the western edge. That is what created Oregon, and this book tells how it happened.

  • Colorado Plateau : A Geologic History

    This new edition of Donald L. Baars’s classic The Colorado Plateau incorporates new text, maps, photographs, figures, tables, and bibliography to provide the most up-to-date geology of the red rock and canyon country of the Four Corners of Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona. Baars’s comprehensive geological summary of the canyonlands is detailed enough to satisfy a geologist looking for an overview of the region yet clearly enough written to appeal to anyone interested in learning the scientific story behind this magnificent scenic area.

  • Roadside Geology of Montana

    Montana's geologic history includes a long succession of disturbances that changed the rocks, then changed many of them again. Unraveling these events reveals a geologically quiet continent that got scrambled in a long and grinding collision with the Pacific crustal plate. Through detailed geologic maps and lively text, Roadside Geology of Montana deciphers the complicated rock record and uncovers each layer of Big Sky Country.

  • 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.
