The Regolith Glossary: Surficial Geology, Soils and Landscapes

Richard A Eggleton, Editor

  • 1000 regolith terms
  • 100 colour photographs and diagrams
  • Free download
  • A single reference for terms commonly used in regolith science
  • A standard for consistency and uniformity in the terminology of regolith science
  • Definitions for these terms.

The glossary is very useful to geologists, geographers, and mineral explorers, and those working in the environmental, soil, and agricultural sciences, as well as earth science teachers.

It includes simplified definitions for some terms from soil and landscape science, not intended to redefine these terms within their speciality, but to give non-specialists both a ready meaning and a direction to the complete definition.

Note: The Regolith Glossary is designed to print on B5-size paper, but can be resized to A4 for the "Gentleman Geologist."
