A classic reference to help engineers and other professionals understand geology and take it into account in their work.Describes the tools of engineering geology, including maps, aerial photographs and remote sensing. Explains geological processes, and how they relate to engineering. These include weathering, soli-forming, rock and soil mechanics, mass wasting, ground water and fluvial processes, and land subsidence. Includes specific coverage of coastal and earthquake-prone regions. For students of engineering geology, as well as professional civil and geological engineers with minimal geology background who need to understand how the basic tenets of geology apply to their fields.

From the Publisher:
A text for advanced undergraduates majoring in geological engineering, offering an in-depth quantitative approach with emphasis on the recognition and avoidance of geologic hazards. Focuses on geomorphological processes and quantitative problem solving, with exercises and answers and b&w photos. This second edition is updated to include analysis of recent geologic disasters including Hurricane Andrew and the Mississippi floods of 1993, and includes more material accessible to those with no geology background, for use as an introduction to applied geology for engineers.
