Earth: Portrait of a Planet, 2 nd edition, by Stephen Marshak Chapter 11: Crags, Cracks, and Crumples: Crustal Deformation and Mountain Building Geologic Maps Geologic maps show the distribu4on of geologic features, including different kinds of rocks and faults. A geologic map is usually printed on top of a regular map (called a base map) to help you locate yourself on the map. The base map is printed with light colors, so it doesn’t interfere with seeing the geologic features on the map. The geology is represented by colors, lines, and special symbols unique to geologic maps.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
