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:
This book offers advanced geology students an in-depth, quantitative approach to engineering geology, with a special emphasis on the recognition and avoidance of geologic hazards. Drawing on real-life examples, the book handles rock and soil mechanics, including slope stability and surficial deposits; geophysical issues and earthquake hazards; and hydrological concerns, ground water, and fluvial and coastal processes. More than 100 figures illustrate the concepts, and the author provides over 1,000 references. This widely-acclaimed textbook has been completely revised and updated to include analyses of recent geologic disasters, including: the Loma Prieta, Northridge, and Kobe earthquakes; Hurricane Andrew; and the Mississippi floods of 1993.
