Engineering geology is characterized as the application of the science of geology to engineering practice. Mainly engineering geology is concerned with the interaction of earth and human structures, ie the investigation of how the earth processes interact on human structures and human activities. The field of engineering geology deals with the detailed technical analysis of earth material and the risk assessment of geological hazards. In this section related publications for engineering geology are provided.
