All engineering structures react with the ground, and most structures make use of materials extracted from the earth. While an engineer cannot be expected to be also an expert geologist, he must have a working knowledge of the subject if his structures are to be economically designed, safely built and safely used. He must also be able to recognise where and when he needs the advice of a specialist. A Manual of Applied Geology is designed as a guide for practising engineers. A team of distinguished engineers and scientists has been assembled to present the basic information which an engineer needs and to explain how best to use this information to deal with problems in his work. Chaptes cover general theory, Formation of rocks, their properties and identification, landforms and soils, geophysical methods, maps and other information sources. the particular problems of terrain evaluation, site selection and investigation and common construction problems (including groundwater control, stability, foundations and underground work) are examined and there are chapters on materials and hydrogeology.Aimed principally at the engineer who is meeting geological problems in his everyday work, this generously illustrated volume will also be useful as an introduction to the subject for first degree engineering students

A FIELD MANUAL FOR THE AMATEUR GEOLOGIST not only describes the science of geology, but also demonstrates practicing geology in the field. The book introduces the geologist's core concepts, tools, and techniques, and requires no prior training in geology. Beginners can learn to identify landforms, minerals, rocks, and fossils, and experience, firsthand, the excitement of geological discovery.

Excerpt from Manual of Geology: Treating of the Principles of the Science With Special Reference to American Geological History The author has endeavored to bring the volume into as small a. Compass as consistent with a proper exhibition of the science; and, if some find its pages too numerous, he feels confident that quite as many would prefer greater fullness. The details introduced have seemed to be necessary, in order that the march of events should be appreciated. At the same time, the work has been adapted to the general reader and literary student, by the printing of the scientific details in finer type. The convenience of a literary class has been further provided for by adding to the Appendix a brief synopsis of the part in coarser type, in which each head is made to present a subject, or question, for special attention. And, as many may not be familiar with the science of Zoology, a review of the classification of animals, with numerous figures, has been inserted as an introduction to the Historical part of the Manual.
