Provides a comprehensive introduction to the subject of environmental geology - the interaction of humans with the geological environment. This book is the first of its kind to recognise that the true challenge of environmental geology does not lie in rural areas or in the green issues. The urban areas, with 50% of the world's population living on 1 per cent on the earth's surface, are the most challenging, in respect of human interaction with the geological environment. It is here that the practical challenges in environmental geology lie.
