The understanding of Earth processes and environments over geological time is highly dependent upon both the experience that can only be gained through doing fieldwork, and the collection of reliable data and appropriate samples in the field.

This textbook explains the main data gathering techniques used by geologists in the field and the reasons for these, with emphasis throughout on how to make effective field observations and record these in suitable formats. Last, but not least, we would like to thank our field colleagues, and students, for interesting and stimulating discussion in the field.

The same process is followed at each locale. In terrains where igneous and metamorphic rocks occur, it may not be necessary to record the up direction of the sample or its location above the base of the stratigraphic unit.

Geological Methods in Mineral Exploration and Mining

Strike, dip direction, and dip magnitude of rock layers and other planar geological features e. Measuring dimensions length, height and area of a feature or area of interest, is an important aspect of many geological studies. Until recently this was done as an estimate by making readings with a Brunton compass, plane table and alidade, and employing trigonometric relationships to compute the height or width.

Modern field geology methods, in conjunction with virtual globes like Google Earth, NASA World Wind and Bhuvan allow a user to enter the GPS coordinates and calculate the length or area to within a few square meters of accuracy. Constructing geological maps or adding content to existing geological maps is the most important field activity that an investigator has to perform. Topographic maps give a valuable input in geological mapping because elevation information is important in interpreting physical relationships between rock formations.

Contacts between litho units, their trends, strike and dip, structural and other attributes at different locales in the study area are plotted in their correct spatial relationships in topographic maps or imageries. An informed assessment is made of all these attributes in intervening areas that have not been directly observed, and contacts are drawn on the basis of observation and assessment.Even higher pressures and temperatures during horizontal shortening can cause both folding and metamorphism of the rocks.

These structural regimes broadly relate to convergent boundaries , divergent boundaries , and transform boundaries, respectively, between tectonic plates. Remember that the techniques described above apply to the measurement of any planar surface, e.

In the southwestern United States, sedimentary, volcanic, and intrusive rocks have been metamorphosed, faulted, foliated, and folded. Other exposure-scale fabrics 7.
