9780138570798: Investigations in Environmental Geology (2nd Edition)

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.
