This was the textbook used for my college environmental geology course. This textbook covers some of the essential topics in environmental geology and is well written. Information was presented in a manner that made it understandable without being overbearing. I enjoyed reading this book and learning about various topics within the field of environmental geology.

This book is well written and straight forward. It is a good book for an introduction to the environment, especially the impact of humans on the environment. It was an easy read.

This book is not cheap but it is worth every penny. This is a practical guide to environmental geology. Geologic processes and cycles are succinctly explained. Each photograph and diagram is utilitarian; no space is wasted on pictures of sailboats or overly cheerful hikers. From steep slope land use to forecasting volcanic activity, this book has it all. Geologic hazards and disaster preparedness is given especially thoughtful treatment. Buy it!
I love Mercedes
nice tb good.

This is a well-written book. It is also very interesting.
I bought this book for an environmental geology course at Idaho State University as part of my interdisciplinary studies in the environment. Keller's book is informative and comprehensive providing both wide coverage and indepth calculations and examples of how to measure environmental events quantitatively. The professor of the course used the book's material in class; however, he was often critical of the simplicity of the illustrations and graphs. I will keep the book as a reference for environmental processes and human impact on the environment. I will not read the book for pleasure, though. It is a text book and can put a reader to sleep quickly.
