Reviews

`...this fascinating guide to the geological, geomorphological and climate aspects of engineering. ...the book goes into some detail, using colour photographs and block geomodels, to bring the subject to life... ...it is suitable for experienced professionals investigating new or novel locations or as a basic guide for students and those just starting out in the profession'. Deposits Magazine --------------------- 'This is an unusual and welcome contribution to the engineering geology literature. ...this is a welcome monograph illustrated with some truly splendid block diagram'. Environmental & Engineering Geoscience -------------------- 'This is a great book!! Messrs Fookes et al. have produced a book that is of practical use in the identification, analysis and investigation of geotechnical projects over a vast range of site conditions. ... This book will be of practical use to persons studying geology and geotechnical engineering. It will be of assistance to practising engineering geologists and especially geotechnical engineers. No Geotechnical office should be without it'. Australian Geomechanics -------------------- 'Almost every page is dominated by beautiful hand-drawn block models or stunning photographs of some of the world's best geology. ... It provides a guide to worldwide ground conditions, with basic text explanations and information on each principal block diagram and its annotated photographs'.

Frequent block diagrams illustrate and shed light on the problems likely to be encountered and the text further enlightens the enquiring mind'. Dorset Geologists Association -------------------- `...beautifully illustrated and provides a good introduction to the use of geological models in an engineering context' Proceedings of the Geologists' Association -------------------- `...it is bound to contain materials of use to practitioners at all stages in their careers, and therefore, ... this is a comprehensive, beautiful and instructive volume. ... it could probably not be bettered by another set of authors. It is definitely one to buy'. Quarterly Journal of Geology and Hydrogeology-------------------'...A valuable and visual guide for its target audience of engineering geologists, geomorphologists, and geotechnical engineers through a series of artistically produced 3D block diagrams and annotated drawings. ...It will certainly provide a source of geological stimuli for lesson and exam preparation for both teacher and student alike. Certainly one for the library shelf for the range of geological photos alone'. Teaching Earth Sciences
