Howarth. Fractals and Chaos in Geology and Geophysics, Second Edition, is the best technical introduction to chaos known to me.

It is suitable not only for geologists, but for anyone who is seriously interested in the subject. The title of the book is misleadingly narrow; its content would be better described by the unwieldy title “Concepts and Application of Chaos Theory,” with an even longer.

The scale invariance of geological phenomena is one of the first concepts taught to a student of geology.

When a photograph ofa geological feature is taken, it is essential to include an object that defines the scale, for example, a coin or a person.
