The Netherlands, like much of the world, is struggling to balance the development of natural resources like oil and coal with its commitment to environmental preservation. In the landmark study Geology of the Netherlands, a team of expert geologists presents an overview of the Low Countries’ geology as well as contemporary problems the land faces. This lavishly illustrated volume examines the stratigraphy and structural setting of the Netherlands from the Pre-Silesian to the Quaternary eras; it will be an essential resource for geologists, engineers, and students.
