To establish the nature of the ground conditions to facilitate construction, and to ensure that the risk of unexpected conditions (e.g. previously unrecognized hazards) or impacts (e.g. unanticipated changes) can be reduced, it is necessary to develop a preliminary ‘ground model’ of the ground conditions at any proposed construction/development site. Different forms of the ground model have been constructed and the various types been labelled as ‘geotechnical models’, ‘engineering geological models’ or ‘conceptual models of ground conditions’. However, they could all be given the general label ‘geomodels’, and typically these models include a basic geological map and a geomorphological...
