Engineering Geology

Engineering geology is application of the geological knowledge in engineering works. It has wide applications in the various engineering fields especially in urban planning and expansion. Site investigation for major structures such as factories, dams, and the heavy buildings is one of the main parts of engineering applications. Others includes the earth material characterization, exploration and the assessment of construction materials and the assessment of difficult grounds such as sabkha, collapsible and expansive soils. The obtained information can be presented in the form of engineering geological maps, which is essential in several projects. Engineering geology studies are performed by a engineering geologist  or geologist that is educated, trained and has obtained experience related to the recognition and interpretation of the natural processes, the understanding of how these processes impact human made structures and knowledge of methods by which to mitigate against the hazards resulting from the adverse natural or human made conditions. The principal objective of the engineering geologist is the protection of life and the property against damage caused by the various geological conditions.
