The volume presents a collection of papers on techniques and case studies in land surface evaluation for engineering practice written by specialist practitioners in the field. The volume arose out of deliberations by the Second Working Party on Land Surface Evaluation set up be the Engineering Group of the Geological Society in January 1997 and chaired by Dr J S Griffiths. The book provides examples of cost-effective methods for collecting land surface and near surface data prior to carrying further detailed ground investigations of engineering sites.

Recommendations for good practice are then made and examples are used to illustrate the use of land surface evaluation in route, area ard site surveys. The results were obtained with an overcori~g technique in bcreholes of a few metres, anl can be compared with neotectonic and seismic data to evaluate the present deform- ation in the basin.

The book provides examples of cost-effective methods for collecting land surface and near surface data prior to carrying further detailed ground investigations of engineering sites. The book should be of interest to practicing engineering geologists, geotechnical engineers, geomorphologists and planners who have responsibilities for planning and designing investigations of potential sites of development.
