Abstract

This volume explores how structural geology can be applied to industrial activities. It includes case studies that exhibit the state of the art and provides an overview of current and future
trends in structural geology. The constituent papers cover a wide range of topics, including regional tectonics; trap and prospect definition; fault, fold and fracture analysis; seal analysis; interpretation of geophysical, borehole, core and outcrop data. The volume demonstrates how structural concepts ultimately create value and how academic institutions, specialist consultants and operating companies work together at a variety of scales and in varied geological settings to explore for and produce natural resources for the economic benefit of society.
