Of the many geotechnical hazards broadly represented as geologic constraints, the net result of long-term dissolution of carbonate rock has perhaps the greatest range of possible combinations related to cause and effect. The authors proclaim that this is a book aimed at the needs of civil engineers, but engineering geologists will find considerable value in its contents for predicting the potential for collapse and subsidence and in specifying the parameters necessary for their mitigation and remediation. Broadly speaking, those of us who work in this demanding field of application can prepare only by becoming able to characterize the ground by...
