Microtectonics deals with the interpretation of microstructures, small-scale deformation structures in rocks that yield abundant information on the history and type of deformation and metamorphism. The results are used by geologists to obtain data for large-scale geological interpretations. This advanced textbook treats common microstructures such as foliations, porphyroblasts, veins, fringes and shear sense indicators. The book mainly focusses on optical microscopy as a tool to study microstructures, but also describes other techniques such as EBSD and tomography. Many photographs and…mehr

Produktbeschreibung
Microtectonics deals with the interpretation of microstructures, small-scale deformation structures in rocks that yield abundant information on the history and type of deformation and metamorphism. The results are used by geologists to obtain data for large-scale geological interpretations. This advanced textbook treats common microstructures such as foliations, porphyroblasts, veins, fringes and shear sense indicators. The book mainly focusses on optical microscopy as a tool to study microstructures, but also describes other techniques such as EBSD and tomography. Many photographs and explanatory drawings clarify the text. The new edition, substantially revised throughout and extended, features two new chapters (primary structures and experimental microstructures), 68 new figures, more than 800 new references and a CD with color photos, images, and animations, exercises and questions as well as a glossary. Microtectonics has proven useful for self study of microstructures and as a manual for short- and one-semester courses.
High number of high-quality line drawings and photographs not only support the text but also give readers vaulable experience in interprating what they observe in the field. Newest developments in microtectonics have been included in all chapters so that al chapters have been revised and updated, e.g. new information on brittle microstructures

Rezensionen
From the reviews of the second edition:

"This book deals with descriptions and interpretations of small-scale structures in deformed rock, as seen … through an optical microscope. The text fills a valuable niche, as many textbooks on structural geology do not discuss microscopic aspects of deformation … . The book is extremely well illustrated with some 322 figures … . The book explains basic principles in a simple form with considerable references, enabling the reader to obtain more in-depth information … . I recommend it as an addition to any geologist’s bookshelf." (Steve Parry, Materials World, Vol. 15 (3), March, 2007)

"Microtectonics is a book that I have come to value highly since its publication in 1996. I like the excellent photographs of deformed rocks under the microscope, with their precise descriptive captions. … Microtectonics is an excellent book for researches and advanced students of structural geology, and Cees Passchier and Rudolf Trouw have done this community a service in producing the updated edition with such care." (Nigel Woodcock, Geological Magazine, Vol. 144 (3), 2007)
