If you want a recommended reference that focuses on real word application in geological field, this Geology for Engineers and Environmental Scientists book is considered as valuable resource to learn detailed principles and practical issues of geology engineering, including to get better understanding about relationship between geology and engineering.
This Geology for Engineers and Environmental Scientists book, written by Alan E. Kehew emphasizes basic backgrounds and clear explanation of geology topics such as mineralogy, igneous rocks, surface processes, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks, structural geology and plate tectonics, weathering and erosion, rivers, coastlines, and glaciers.
The Geology for Engineers and Environmental Scientists book also includes analysis of strength and properties geological materials so you know how to get site investigations by using laboratory equipments and tools to determine characteristics, slope stability, mechanical and physical properties of material including applications in ground water, reservoirs and dams as well considering the issues of excavations.
Geology for Engineers and Environmental Scientists book is highly recommended for civil engineering, environmental engineering students and practitioners to get in depth knowledge of geology fundamental in order to answer real world challenges by doing ground investigation and considering environmental issues, depletion of energy, water resources and human factors including potential effects of climate change.
