Editors Note This book exemplifies the vital role of environmental geology and geological processes in understanding the physical environment and the influence and fundamental importance of engineering geology in our modern world, particularly the infrastructure, whether it be foundations, routeways or reservoirs.|The influence of geohazards, the significance of soil and water resources, and the impact of mining, waste disposal and pollution/contamination on the environment are all examined. The various aspects of construction that are involved in the development of the infrastructure are also discussed - land evaluation and geological construction materials are therefore taken account of in this context. Basic Environmental and Engineering Geology provides a wealth of practical examples and a comprehensive suggested reading list is provided for each chapter which will make it a vital tool for advanced undergraduates and postgraduates in geology, engineering geology, civil engineering, physical geography and environmental science and planning. Environmental geologists, environmental scientists, managers and planners including civil engineers, builders and architects will also find this book of immense value.
