Summary

The author provides an introduction to geology for engineering students with a focus on applications of geology that they are likely to use in their professional careers.

Comprehensive introduction to geology from an engineering standpoint designed for engineering students.

Case histories in nearly every chapter help emphasize the relationship between geology and engineering to give students an appreciation of natural geologic processes that affect all human activity, particularly the highways, dams, bridges, and buildings that have been constructed without adequate respect for geologic processes.

new case histories added in the second edition include major natural disasters such as the Loma Prieta earthquake in San Francisco, the effects of Hurricanes Hugo and Andrew, and construction on the Alaska pipeline.

Introduces engineering students to rock mechanics and soil mechanics, so they will have a head start as they progress to more advanced courses.

Features a separate chapter on subsurface contamination and remediation with state-of-the-art coverage of contamination by aqueous and non aqueous phase compounds.

introduces students to an area of current interest and activity in both geology and engineering. This field has one of the most active job markets in engineering and geology.

Quantitative examples and end-of-chapter problems. Gives instructors the option of a quantitative or non-quantitative approach to geology.

Has a solid background in the basics of geology including mineralogy, igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks, structural geology and plate tectonics, weathering and erosion, rivers, coastlines, and glaciers.

Includes worked examples and end-of-chapter problems.

Coverage of volcanic hazards: Mt. Pinatubo, Hawaiian volcanoes, Lake Nyos gas explosion, Nevado del Ruiz mud flow (Ch. 3).

Expanded coverage of sedimentary structures, stratigraphy and correlation, energy resources, and low-level radioactive waste disposal (Ch. 5).
