This lab guide helps readers learn to make wise choices for sustainability in a finite, changing, and geologically active world. Eighteen exercises cover many current issues in environmental geology and are introduced in four sections. Earth’s Materials, Geologic Time, and Geologic Processes; Maps, Aerial Photographs and Satellite Images; Measurements, Basic Calculations and Conversions, and Graphs; Volcanoes, Volcanic Products, and Volcanic Hazards; Hazards of Mount St. Helens; Earthquake Epicenters, Intensities, Risks, Faults, Nonstructural Hazards and Preparation; The Loma Prieta Earthquake of 1989, and Forecasting Earthquakes in the Bay Region; Landslides and Avalanches; Subsidence; River Floods; Coastal Hazards; Groundwater Hydrology; Water Quality Data and Pollution Sources; Lake and River Contamination from Industrial Waste; Groundwater and Surface Water Contamination from Resource Extraction; Groundwater Overdraft and Saltwater Intrusion; Geology and Regional Planning; Global Change and Sustainability. A hands-on reference for anyone who wants to make more informed choices, and review information critically, about the environment.

Written in a hands-on, inquiry-based, problem-solving mode to make learning easier for students. This book includes exercises based on current events topics.From the Back Cover:
Using a hands-on, inquiry-based, problem-solving approach throughout, this laboratory manual for environmental geology features 27 exercises based on classic and recent case histories and current events topics. Reviews basic geology and math necessary for the labs and lists Internet addresses for supplemental material related to each exercise. Focuses on geologic systems and human interaction with them — e.g., volcanos, earthquakes, landslides, snow avalanches, coastal hazards, river floods — with examples from throughout the United States. Discusses water and soil pollution — e.g., surface-water and ground-water quality, processes, and pollution — with numerous examples from throughout the United States. Illustrates the role that the geosciences play in our life-support system — e.g., groundwater overdraft and saltwater intrusion, energy types, conversions, uses, and options; waste management vs. waste deposit, and total energy and resource flow within a system. Calls for application of basic geological concepts and techniques to regional land-use planning. Considers future trends and global change. For those interested in environmental geology, applied geology, or environmental science.
