TERMINOLOGY STRUCTURAL GEOLOGY study of deformed rocks and processes of deformation at atomic to regional scale (kilometers). TECTONICS – study of deformed rocks and processes of deformation at regional to global scale. Dimensions of Observation and Measurement 1) Atomic – below resolution of optical microscope [ ‘microns’ ] 2) Microscopic: < centimeters 3) Mesoscopic: centimeters to tens of meters [ ‘outcrop’ ] 4) Megascopic: > tens of meters [‘ large ’ ]
