The Netherlands, like much of the world, is struggling to balance the development of natural resources like oil and coal with its commitment to environmental preservation. In the landmark study Geology of the Netherlands, a team of expert geologists presents an overview of the Low Countries’ geology as well as contemporary problems the land faces. This lavishly illustrated volume examines the stratigraphy and structural setting of the Netherlands from the Pre-Silesian to the Quaternary eras; it will be an essential resource for geologists, engineers, and students.

This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. The present-day surface of the Netherlands is mostly flat, low-lying land, about half of which would be flooded by the sea in absence of dikes. The underlying geology is fascinating: the country has its mountains underground , and is rich in hydrocarbons, coal, salt, groundwater and other geological resources. Geology of the Netherlands is a new, comprehensive reference work, covering both the onshore area and the Dutch sector of the North Sea. The book deals with the stratigraphy and structural setting of Lower Paleozoic to Quaternary sediments, with magmatism and seismicity, and also addresses the geological resources. This book aims to present an up-to-date overview for geologists, engineers and earth science students, and should stimulate the interest of all others who wish to know more about its subject.
