By W. E. Kelly,S. Mareš

Engineering geology and hydrogeology are technologies which make the most of different technologies resembling geophysics to unravel functional difficulties. The publication is written within the monograph structure with seven chapters. the 1st bankruptcy introduces the engineering and hydrogeological initiatives to be mentioned within the publication. family among the actual, geomechanical and hydrogeological parameters are mentioned in chapters 3 and 5. equipment for box measurements and interpretation of box information are mentioned in chapters 4 and 6. a few specified tools now not sometimes utilized in present perform are mentioned in bankruptcy seven. to demonstrate and study a number of the functions, the authors have drawn from the vast literature together with many reviews now not formerly defined in english texts. Theoretical analyzes are supplemented via quite a few examples.

This booklet is addressed to school scholars of geology specially engineering geology and hydrogeology, geophysics and earth sciences, and submit graduate, reseachers, and practicing engineering geologists, geotechnical engineers, and hydrogeologists.
