Prepared by the Case Histories Committee for the Engineering Geology Division of the Geological Society of America, these histories are intended as reference material for the practicing geologist and for the college student. This volume, the eighth in the Case History series, presents the seismological aspects of the works of man—the civil engineer or engineering geologist interacting with the environment. Topics are in two categories—changes at a point (nuclear or chemical explosions and well injection or withdrawal) and changes on a line (damming a river or construction along a coastline).
