Product description

Review

'Jackson has provided a comprehensive overview of Earth science with a wide variety of case studies to illustrate the importance of incorporating sound understanding of geologic processes and properties in engineering design. I expect that this text will be a valuable reference not only for the target audience of civil engineers, but also for geologists planning careers in applied environmental geoscience.' Jean M. Bahr, University of Wisconsin

'This is a robust, thorough, well-written, and engaging treatise which brings geology to geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineers in a straightforward fashion, illustrated with excellent case studies and practical examples. A must-have reference particularly for early practitioners in both geology and engineering, and a useful teaching aid for senior undergraduate and graduate classes in geotechnical engineering, hydrogeology, environmental engineering, and environmental geology.' Kent S. Novakowski, Queen's University, Ontario

'Finally a textbook with depth and breadth that bridges the knowledge gap between engineers in the geotechnical and geoenvironmental fields and earth scientists. A refreshing and informative textbook, not filled with equations and lengthy examples that are often irrelevant to solving real problems. The topics and structure of the textbook are well suited for teaching and it is sure to become a must-have reference for geoengineers and geologists.' Jean Benoît, University of New Hampshire

'An ideal resource for a one-semester course, this textbook introduces students to the varied disciplines that make up earth science as applied to civil engineering. Topics, methodology and terminology typically unfamiliar to engineering students are made easy to digest through the provision of an extensive glossary and ample examples of application in engineering practice. I warmly recommend this book to students and practitioners looking to expand their knowledge and expertise in this interdisciplinary field.' John Burland, Emeritus Professor of Soil Mechanics, Imperial College London
