AIPG: Twenty Roadblocks to Communicating Engineering Geology

PDF versionPDF version
Cover of the July/August/September issue of The Professional Geologists
In the latest issue of "The Professional Geologist," the American Institute of Professional Geologists published a thoughtful article on roadblocks to communicating engineering geology. The story starts out with some classic engineering catastrophes that highlight the importance of ensuring thorough communication between scientists and engineers. The authors note many words throughout the sciences and engineering fields are the same but have a discipline-specific definition. They also go over certain measurements that may be reported differently in different fields.
