An integration of the essentials of environmental and engineering geology giving a thorough grounding to students and professionals alike

As society becomes more aware of the significance of the environment, such issues become increasingly important. The 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 in this book. 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. The book provides a wealth of practical examples and a comprehensive suggested reading list is provided for each chapter.
