1."Exploration Science: Field Geology and Mapping (Adventures in Earth Science)" by Dr Peter T Scott
“Exploration Science: Field Geology and Mapping (Adventures in Earth Science)” Book Review: This book is a guide to exploring the surface and underground layers of the Earth. It covers different areas of geology, such as mineralogy (study of minerals), petrology (study of rocks), and paleontology (study of fossils). The book also includes information on geochemistry (chemical composition of rocks), seismology (study of earthquakes), and engineering geology (application of geology to engineering projects). It explains the scientific methods used by all scientists, including geologists, and helps us understand how observation and experimentation are important in scientific investigations. The book also teaches us about measurement, data collection, and the use of units of measurement. It covers scientific notation and the general application of the Metric System. This book is useful for practical researchers and includes practical applications like geological mapping. It also provides many research ideas for those interested in studying the Earth.

2."Oil and Gas Exploration in Cuba: Geological-Structural Cartography using Potential Fields and Airborne Gamma Spectrometry (SpringerBriefs in Earth System Sciences)" by Manuel Enrique Pardo Echarte and Jorge Luis Cobiella Reguera
“Oil and Gas Exploration in Cuba: Geological-Structural Cartography using Potential Fields and Airborne Gamma Spectrometry (SpringerBriefs in Earth System Sciences)” Book Review: This book is a summary of mapping geological structures. It covers topics like potential fields and airborne gamma spectrometry data. It explains different types of rocks, such as igneous and metamorphic rocks. The book includes information about the regional distribution of structures and tectonics related to hydrocarbon exploration. It focuses on mapping potential new locations for oil and gas deposits. It discusses the Redox Complex and studies aspects like acid magmatism and gravi-magnetometric data. The book also talks about low-density granitic bodies that formed after metamorphism. It describes different types of faults, both those formed during metamorphism and those that developed later. The book explains processes like folding and metamorphism of large sequences of rocks. It discusses the role of deep fractures that run in a mostly horizontal direction. It also provides information about the magnetic field and its variations. The book helps us understand the direction and boundaries of folded tectonic structures. It also provides insights into the development of volcanogenic rocks, areas where migmatitic rocks might have formed, and areas affected by tectonic forces.
