    352 Pages
    by CRC Press

    Geologically Active contains over 500 papers from 44 countries worldwide, which were presented at the 11th Congress of the IAEG, and includes the state-of-the-art on practise in engineering geology. Engineering geology now extends into a host of linked fields: disaster risk management and climate change, preservation of lifelines, geophysics, interpretation of satellite imagery, communication, instrumentation, mining, tunnelling, groundwater, rehabilitation and brown-field development, wine, recyclable materials, ethics, and education. Communication with non-specialists and developing ‘green’ solutions has never been more important and the industry is evolving tools and emerging ideas to more appropriately achieve this.

    This volume brings together engineering, science and practice to focus on the very real effects of active geological processes on communities and infrastructure and their development. The theme of Geologically Active is developed through five chapters focussing on assessment and identification of natural hazards, the meeting of geological phenomena with people and infrastructure to create risk, approaches to hazard mitigation around the world, application of engineering geological techniques and practice, site investigation and geotechnical modelling, and engineering geology in the global economy, bridging the gap between scientists, engineers and non-practitioners in a changing world environment. Geologically Active encourages the transformation of science research into practice, offering a connection between scientific progress and community resilience, and will be invaluable to engineering and geological academics and consultants, government organizations, and power and mining companies.
