Product Description

Details

"Geomorphology for Engineers" presents a worldwide view of geomorphology for engineers and other professionals on the near-surface engineering problems associated with the various landscapes. This new and completely revised edition has additional chapters with an improved format and is broadly divided into three parts. Although geomorphological landforms and processes exert a strong influence on surface engineering works, comparatively little systematic information on geomorphology is available to engineers - until now! The first part is concerned with the major factors which control the materials, form and processes on the Earth's surfaces. The second part deals with the geomorphological processes which help shape land surfaces and influence their engineering characteristics and the final part covers environments and landscapes, including some specialist chapters. Each chapter is written by leading authorities on the subject and is both self-contained and referenced with other chapters as appropriate to make a balanced whole.

Press Reviews

'Both engineers and geologists have very important roles, and both need to be aware of the impact that geomorphology has on their subject area. This volume goes a long way to fulfilling this requirement. ... the editorial team provides both broad and comprehensive knowledge of the subject area presented in this book, witnessed by the high calibre of chapter authors who come from all parts of the geo-world. ... it may seem an expensive volume, but considering the depth, coverage and detail contained within the volume, this must be considered excellent value for money. It is a must for all professionals in the geo-world, and the editors should be applauded for the book's comprehensive nature and clarity of presentation. And it is a must-have for any libraries who are serious in supporting any geo-professional, be they in working companies or in research institutions.' to be published in Geology Today 'This book will find its place on the close-in bookshelf of many geologists, engineers and physical geographers. Not as a text, but as a ready first reference to the myriad of ideas, formulas, and challenges of the emerging discipline of engineering geomorphology.' Geomorphology
