Engineering Geology Special Publications

This is a successful and popular series devoted to engineering geology and geotechnical topics. The volumes are highly regarded both within the UK and internationally, and one has been translated into Spanish. The first volume was published in 1985.

Most Engineering Geology Special Publications have been the result of our Engineering Group annual conferences or Working Party reports, but proposals from other sources are welcomed.

Although Engineering Geology Special Publications do not necessarily have to be comprehensive (they are not text books), we expect the editors to provide a balanced coverage of the subject matter. The Society has high standards of quality control for book proposals, and the volume editors are required to undertake full peer review of all papers to the standards expected for our journals.

A list of the titles in this series is available from the publications catalogues.

Engineering Geology Special Publications can be purchased through the online bookshop and through the AAPG, online booksellers and the major library suppliers in North America. The most recent volumes can be inspected and purchased in the Burlington House Bookshop (within the Library).
