History. Although it was not until that the California State Mining Bureau, predecessor to the California Geological Survey, was established, the "roots" of California's state geological survey date to an earlier time. As might be expected for a state that owed its existence to the gold rush ofthe California State Legislature recognized that geologists could provide valuable.

The United States has more than 65 active or potentially active volcanoes, more than those of all other countries except Indonesia and Japan. During the twentieth century, volcanic eruptions in Alaska, California, Hawaii, and Washington devastated thousands of square kilometers of land, caused substantial economic and societal disruption and, in some instances, loss of life.Geologic hazards pose the greatest threat to human safety for any geotechnical undertaking, but it is the engineer's ability to recognize and cope with these hazards.

This book aims to help engineers to properly recognize, understand various geologic hazards, and provide safe and economical construction. Contents. Introduction.The Colorado Geological Survey (CGS) is a non-regulatory state government agency situated within the Colorado School of Mines.
