Together, the two volumes of the Dictionary of Geotechnical Engineering (G-E, E-G) contain some 60,000 entries, with common synonyms given in the target language, where available. Similarly, additional explanations help to differentiate the headwords. Apart from general terms used in geology, the dictionary covers the more practical fields within geosciences, the emphasis being placed on mining, soil analysis, reconnaissance geology, geophysics, geomorphology, civil engineering, hydrogeology, hydraulic engineering, geological engineering, cartography, soil deposits, mineralogy, oceanography and surveying.
