    There are three types of geologic reports: in-depth geologic report, feasibility geologic report, and geologic letter report. A geologic report must address the risk of damage or injury posed by any geologic hazard found to threaten the proposed improvements and include mitigations of . The varied geology of Pennsylvania is representative of deep geologic times and events -- when geologic plates collided and formed mountains, when the land surface was under water or ice, and even during relatively quiet times. The different landforms across Pennsylvania reflect these tectonic, erosional, and depositional processes, as well as.

      Natural hazards cost the global economy over $50, million per year. Two thirds of this is spent on damage repair, the remainder represents the cost of predicting, preventing and mitigating against disasters.

    Fig. 2 California’s Portuguese Bend Landslide. Source: The Slippery Slope of Litigating Geologic Hazards. The weight of the houses added driving mass to the slope and waste water from septic tanks greatly reduced the shear strength of the slope. Also, during road construction, Los Angeles County put fill dirt at the head of the slope, increasing driving mass. Geology is the study of Earth -- the materials that make it up, the processes that act on those materials, and the history of the planet and its life forms. The rocks under a specific area have a significant impact on how that land can best be used. The earth’s rocks and surface deposits influence the occurrence and quality of water resources.
