Geology, granite veins are possible

Pocket guide geology in the field

This book is an identification atlas that helps to identify and describe minerals, rocks and the most important fossil groups in the field. In addition, a number of important geological structures are described and illustrated in numerous photos. This invites you to uncover the geology behind landscapes and rocks out in the field. The book is aimed at readers and students interested in geology, for whom the work will serve well as a companion on excursions through nature. It helps to understand the diversity and complexity of geological processes such as the interplay of magmatism, tectonics, metamorphism, climate and sedimentation that have shaped today's earth's surface.
