Having originally defined the Environmental Geology course, this text is considered the most comprehensive yet readable book for a course at this level. Keller continues to offer the most detailed, current research available. He covers a wide range of topics, discussing everything from fundamental geologic principles to the specifics of environmental law and geologic hazards, from a truly environmental perspective. The Ninth Edition emphasizes the engineering geology approach, with more quantification of relationships, especially in the discussion of soil and rock mechanics and landslides. CourseSmart textbooks do not include any media or print supplements that come packaged with the bound book.
