"Geologic Monitoring is a practical, nontechnical guide for land managers, educators, and the public that synthesizes representative methods for monitoring short-term and long-term change in geologic features and landscapes. A prestigious group of subject-matter experts has carefully selected methods for monitoring sand dunes, caves and karst, rivers, geothermal features, glaciers, nearshore marine features, beaches and marshes, paleontological resources, permafrost, seismic activity, slope movements, and volcanic features and processes. Each chapter has an overview of the resource; summarizes features that could be monitored; describes methods for monitoring each feature ranging from low-cost, low-technology methods (that could be used for school groups) to higher cost, detailed monitoring methods requiring a high level of expertise; and presents one or more targeted case studies."--Publisher's description.

"You can't really know the place where you live until you know the shapes and origins of the land around you. To feel truly at home in the Bay Area, read Doris Sloan's intriguing stories of this region's spectacular, quirky landscapes."—Hal Gilliam, author of Weather of the San Francisco Bay Region "This is a fascinating look at some of the world's most complex and engaging geology. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in an understanding of the beautiful landscape and dynamic geology of the Bay Area."—Mel Erskine, geological consultant "This accessible summary of San Francisco Bay Area geology is particularly timely. We are living in an age where we must deal with our impact on our environment and the impact of the environment on us. Earthquake hazards, and to a lesser extent landslide hazards, are well known, but the public also needs to be aware of other important engineering and environmental impacts and geologic resources. This book will allow Bay Area residents to make more intelligent decisions about the geological issues affecting their lives."—John Wakabayashi, geological consultant

The same geological forces that threaten our lives with earthquakes and volcanic eruptions also nourish our spirits by forming spectacular mountains, valleys, and coastlines. Dr. Robert J. Lillie relates this "Beauty from the Beast" story of the Pacific Northwest and surrounding regions by highlighting spectacular scenery in national, state and local parklands. Dr. Lillie draws on his experience as a geology professor, park ranger and graphic illustrator to reveal plate tectonics in action. His vivid photos and color graphics reveal the basics of Earth science in an easy-to-understand format. Each chapter includes fun demonstrations involving food, state quarters, decks of cards and other everyday objects to help readers appreciate the region's landscapes and the geological forces that created them. The initial chapter introduces the reader to plate tectonics and its bearing on landforms, earthquakes and volcanoes. Subsequent chapters zoom in on landscapes at the three types of plate boundaries and a hotspot. "Beauty from the Beast" reminds Northwest residents and visitors that their hometowns and iconic parklands are subject to geologic processes that affect their lives and livlihoods. By learning to live with the beast of earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanic eruptions they can more-fully appreciate the beauty that surrounds them.
