What is Engineering Geology?
Engineering geology is the application of geological data,
techniques and principles to the study of rock and soil surficial
materials, and ground water. This is essential for the proper
location, planning, design, construction, operation and
maintenance of engineering structures.
10
What is Engineering Seismology?
Seismology is study of the generation, propagation and recording
of the elastic waves and the source that produce them.
