Engineering Geology: Geologic Hazard Evaluations

Geologic hazard evaluations are incorporated into geologic studies and may also be performed as a site-specific objective. Geologic hazard evaluations range from preliminary assessments to detailed analysis of hazards and design of mitigation measures.

Geologic hazard evaluations address:

  • Faulting and seismic hazards, including ground shaking, ground rupture, and liquefaction potential
  • Landslide, mudflow, debris flow, and rockfall potential
  • Groundwater conditions
  • Potential for flooding
  • Erosion potential
  • Compressible peat and organic soil deposits
  • Expansive soils
