The author also provides methods for overcoming sinkhole-related failures and for avoiding or minimizing future sinkhole collapses that impact on human activity.

Professor Sowers also discusses site investigation, as well as the design and construction methods that are appropriate for building foundations in areas where sinkholes are likely to develop. It is written for engineers and geologists, in addition to other professionals who work together to solve sinkhole problems.
