Welcome to the professional website of Dr. Edmund Medley.
I am a Geopractitioner; a Geological Engineer with broad academic and practical background within the multi-disciplinary region lying between the domains of Geology, Soil Engineering and Rock Engineering. (The differences between the various “geo-disciplines” of geopractitioners are described here and here.)
As detailed in my Geopractice Experience pages, I am the proud Owner of more than 40 years of varied international experience in Geological Engineering, and Geotechnical Engineering. I have experience in mineral exploration prospecting and geophysics; and knowledge of fluvial and coastal geomorphology/engineering. I am professionally licensed as both an Engineer and a Geologist in the USA, United Kingdom and Canada – see my Biography for details.
I am an internationally-known expert on the characterization of bimrocks, complex geological mixtures of hard blocks of rock embedded in weak, often soil-like matrix, such as melanges, fault rocks and weathered rocks. My bimrocks publications are freely available.
I also investigate ground failures and vulnerabilities. I provide support on litigations and insurance claims, and have testified at depositions and trials as an expert. I am an energetic and stimulating lecturer of about 350 presentations in my career; and I have been on-camera TV talent for documentaries on geological and civil engineering topics.
