About this book

Environmental Geology is aimed primarily at upper-level undergraduates and graduate students in departments of earth and environmental sciences, but will also strongly appeal to the professional geologist, geographer, civil engineer and planner. As human activities continue to degrade the Earth, the crucial importance of environmental geology is fast being recognized. As a result, course structures are beginning to exhibit an environmental bias and the book is designed to cater for this new direction. It provides an assessment and evaluation of environmental hazards (volcanoes, earthquakes, etc) and problems (mining, waste disposal, etc), and suggests methods of dealing with them. In short, it covers the planning, development and management of those aspects of the environment which relate to geology, and which are fundamental to the future health of our planet.
