About this book

This book presents a current and comprehensive report on this emerging field that bridges the areas of geology and mechanics.

Excerpt from the Foreword by James R. Rice, Harvard University, Cambridge "...the topic of this book is of major interest to a wide spectrum of earth scientists and engineers. That is all the more so because of the effectiveness of the presentation. The editors and their contributing authors, together constituting some fo the most notable scientists on the mechanics of fluid-saturated rocks, have assembled a volume of remarkable soundness ..."
