Book Summary

Through out the Geologic Time,  Our world is changing rapidly.  Population growth in the  United   States  since  1990  has  added  more  than  50 million   people,   while    population   growth   globally since  1990  has  added  more  than  one  billion. Many of these   people   live in geologically active   areas,   which are   subject to potentially hazardous events   such   as floods, earthquakes or landslides. Decisions that  people  make,   about  where   and  in  what  they  live,  greatly influence  whether  geologic  events   become disasters. For  example, human  choices about  resource development,    such   as   logging  slopes    and   changing  river courses,  can   increase  the   number  and   severity  of impacts from   geologic events   such  as  landslides and floods.  Impacts  from  the  Indian   Ocean   tsunami  after the Sumatra earthquake of December, 2004,  which  lead to the tragic  loss of nearly  200,000 lives,  were probably made   worse   by   development  choices  along   coasts. When   population is concentrated in the coastal zone by    building   hotels     and    condominiums,   risks    to humans increase. A director of the World  Health  Organization has been  quoted  as saying  that  he  doesn’t like to  use  the  term   natural  disasters;  human   factors   are also  important in creating disasters.

In  addition to  more  losses  from  disasters, population  increase also  has  resulted in greater demand for geologic resources such  as fresh  water,  industrial rocks and   minerals,  metals,  and   fossil   fuels throughout the Geologic Time.   As  we  move beyond   the   peak    in   global    oil   production,   major changes in energy  sources, energy  uses,  our  quality of life,  our  organization of  cities  and  transportation will continue to occur.

With population increase, human   impact   on the Earth system also is forcing changes in diversity of the biosphere, the chemistry of the atmosphere, and global climate. The  quest  for  sustainability, complicated and threatened by  changes in population, pollution, energy use, environment, economics and political objectives, is seen  by  some   as  the  ultimate  objective for  humanity and  one  in which  environmental geology should  play  a key role.

The  main  goal  of  the Investigations in Environmental Geology book   is  to  help   students learn  how  to make  wise  choices for  sustainability in a finite,  changing and  geologically active  world.  No  one can  promise a high-quality life,  safe  from  natural and human related risks,  but  education about  observation of past  events, interpretation of clues  from  landscapes in  potentially hazardous areas,  and  choices of actions can  help   mitigate  some   of  the  risks   from   hazardous events. Understanding the  processes, materials, landscapes  and  history of the  Earth  and  the  role  of humans in  using  and  changing the  Earth  system, will  provide the basis  for meeting the sustainability challenge.

The Book of Investigations in Environmental Geology is an important book for displaying the differenty items for the Environmental Geology investigation
