This book offers advanced geology students an in-depth, quantitative approach to engineering geology, with a special emphasis on the recognition and avoidance of geologic hazards. Drawing on real-life examples, the book handles rock and soil mechanics, including slope stability and surficial deposits; geophysical issues and earthquake hazards; and hydrological concerns, ground water, and fluvial and coastal processes. More than 100 figures illustrate the concepts, and the author provides over 1,000 references. This widely-acclaimed textbook has been completely revised and updated to include analyses of recent geologic disasters, including: the Loma Prieta, Northridge, and Kobe earthquakes; Hurricane Andrew; and the Mississippi floods of 1993.

In recent years, interest in Neoproterozoic glaciations has grown as their pivotal role in Earth system evolution has become increasingly clear. One of the main goals of the IGCP Project number 512 was to produce a synthesis of newly available information on Neoproterozoic successions worldwide. This Memoir consists of a series of overview chapters followed by site-specific chapters. The overviews cover key topics including the history of research on Neoproterozoic glaciations, identification of glacial deposits, chemostratigraphic techniques and datasets, palaeomagnetism, biostratigraphy, geochronology and climate modelling. The site specific chapters include reviews of the history of research on these rocks and up-to-date syntheses of the structural framework, tectonic setting, palaeomagnetic & geochronological constraints, physical, biological, and chemical stratigraphy, and descriptions of the glaciogenic and associated strata, including economic deposits.

"Physical Geology: Earth Revealed" is appropriate for introductory physical geology classes. This text, which includes the same information as the market-leading "Physical Geology" - 12th edition, by Plummer/Carlson, is for the instructor who prefers to cover plate tectonics early in the course. The eighth edition has been updated to include the most current information from the various sub-disciplines that comprise physical geology. The book's purpose is to clearly present geologic processes so that students can understand the logic of scientific methods. This text features an outstanding art program and a proven, accessible writing style. This text continues to be used as the official textbook to accompany the Annenberg CPB distributed telecourse for physical geology.

The Good Earth is the product of collaboration between the content rigor provided by Earth Science specialists (McConnell, Steer) and the results of research on learning. The Good Earth has been explicitly designed to be compatible with inquiry-based, active learning in the college classroom. The structural elements of this text will allow the instructor to incorporate these student-centered teaching methods into their Earth Science course. The authors have tested the book’s content and pedagogy in large Earth Science classes for non-majors that are populated with mostly freshmen. Their experiences show that the materials and methods in The Good Earth can improve students’ learning, increase daily attendance, reduce attrition, and increase students’ enthusiasm in comparison with classes taught following a traditional lecture format. The authors have chosen to emphasize three scientific themes throughout the text: i) scientific literacy; ii) Earth Science and the human experience; and, iii) the science of global change. The discussion of scientific methods is woven into the text throughout. They have included numerous examples of human interaction with the Earth that can serve as entry points for students to appreciate the nature of science. Global change is a theme that is evident in much current Earth Science research so our authors have used global change as a content theme throughout the book.
