Interpreting a geological setting for the purposes of engineering design and construction requires knowledge of geological engineering and engineering geology, leading to integrated engineering solutions which take into account both ground conditions and environment. This textbook covers the subject area of geological engineering.
Presents the knowledge and understanding of the importance of external controls on sedimentary environments. Emphasizing on sequence stratigraphy, architectural elements and allocyclic controls, this work includes a coverage of environments and the processes that operate within them.
Offers an introduction to the application of geology and geophysics to the production of oil and gas. This book reflects the sequential and cyclical processes of exploration, appraisal, development, and production. It draws case histories from around the world and from petroleum systems ranging in age from late Precambrian to Pliocene.
Offers a description of atmospheric layers sensitively pitched for the non-meteorological specialist in a variety of disciplines: in geography, agriculture, forestry, ecology, engineering, environment and planning.
An accessible and engaging introductory text, the updated third edition utilizes important current research in tectonics and sedimentation and focuses on crucial geological principles. Contributions from chemistry, physics, and structure are drawn upon throughout to help students gain an understanding of Earth's sedimentary rock record.
