With the escalating increase in global population and urbanisation extending to the growth of megacities in the 'Third World', existing cities and towns sprawling outwards more or less unchecked, and older cities decaying and changing their industrial base, geoscientists are being called on to tackle problems in the urban setting and also to consider problems raised by urbanisation and affecting areas outside the urban limits and even the environmental health of the globe in general. The increasing demand for geoscientific input to planning of urban land use, rectifying problems of decay and poor prior procedures, rehabilitating land after the closure of extractive and other industries, designing new constructions, and environmental assessment and monitoring, may well take up the employment-slack caused by the decline of traditional areas of geoscience employment. This book is targetted at the geoscientist, the engineer and the land-use planner, and scientists of other disciplines, since the problems of urban- isation can only be solved by a multidisciplinary approach. Topics include: Minerals; Soils; Water; Natural hazards; Man-made hazards; Urban development.
We provide complimentary e-inspection copies of primary textbooks to instructors considering our books for course adoption.
Most VitalSource eBooks are available in a reflowable EPUB format which allows you to resize text to suit you and enables other accessibility features. Where the content of the eBook requires a specific layout, or contains maths or other special characters, the eBook will be available in PDF (PBK) format, which cannot be reflowed. For both formats the functionality available will depend on how you access the ebook (via Bookshelf Online in your browser or via the Bookshelf app on your PC or mobile device).
