  • Geophysical issues and earthquake hazards
  • Hydrological concerns, groundwater, and fluvial and coastal processes

More than 100 figures illustrate the concepts, and the author provides over 1,000 references.

This classic textbook has been completely revised and updated to include analyses of recent geologic disasters, including:

  • The Loma Prieta, Northridge, and Kobe earthquakes,
