Glossary of geology by Robert Latimer Bates( Book )

54 editions published between 1973 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The terms in the Glossary have appeared in recognized publications and reflect, in general, North American usage, although some British and Australian terminology is included. Colloquialisms are, for the most part, restricted to those of the USA. Old and obsolete terms are defined when possible(and are distinguished as such), since the older geologic literature contnues to be a valuable research tool. Foreign-language terms are included only if they appear as such in the English-language literature."--Introd. Emphasis is on current or preferred meaning. Some definitions include references to the literature, comparable terms, synonyms, and etymology. Bibliography, p. A1-A52
