maps of intrusive igneous structures
Having completed the description of maps of faulted structures, the book is continued with maps of intrusive igneous structures. To do this, the chapter is introduced by a description of the geological setting of igneous rocks in the first paragraph. Because there is a large variety in shapes and sizes of these structures, these are the subject of the second paragraph. Different kind of plutons, which are bodies of intrusive igneous rocks solidified from a cooling magma, and moreover the special kind mantled gneiss-domes are discussed in the final two chapters.
