The various components of field geology have been described under nine chapters. The text has been illustrated with. 33 figures and 15 field photographs. The petrographical and structural studies, commence with the field mapping exercise. How to identify the rocks and the structural elements possessed by them, in the field, has been stressed and elaborated. One of the highlights of this book is the compilation of a Tabular schematic field classification of the igneous rocks. These rocks have been given priority because, these are extensively developed in the crust of the earth, and there are innumerable varieties within them. A separate chapter is devoted to the Field Indicators of rocks, minerals, and structures. This has the semblance of a Ready Reckoner.
