Product description


'...a lavishly illustrated volume... ...a weighty tome that encapsulates the author's 30 plus years' experience of logging chalk... ...this book should also be available to all in the team when developments on or in the Chalk are under investigation or design'. Bulletin of Engineering Geology and the Environment ---------- '...the first ever book exclusively dedicated to this geological material, includes excellent and detailed information for geologists and geological engineers who might have to work in the field with chalk in any geological or construction project'. European Geologist -------------------- 'As well as serving a practical guide, this lavishly illustrated book also provides a detailed overview of onshore and offshore Chalk stratigraphy with a much newly published data... ...the applicability and ease of access of the information it contains provide an excellent basis for anyone who needs to become competent in logging and understanding Chalk geology, and will be invaluable to those who want to expand established expertise'. Proceedings of the Geologists' Association -------------------- '...exemplifies good geological practice... The key selling point of the book...is its lavish illustration. ...really helps the reader to observe the Chalk through the eyes of a leading chalk geologist. ...an invaluable training resource to students, amateurs and professionals. ... I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who wants to know the Chalk, scientifically or practically. The book is highly accessible and a pleasure to read. It is absolutely essential reading for all practitioners...' Geology Today -------------------- '...does an excellent job of describing its huge variety of lithologies and fabrics. ...this is the book to have to hand. ... One of its beauties is the wonderful set of colour photographs used to portray chalk profiles. ...the author's masterly synthesis of chalk description...' Geoscientist
