Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Geotechnical engineering aspects are central and critical to most problems of environmental control. Design, construction, operation and maintenance of solutions to such environmental problems require a thorough understanding in Environmental Geotechnics. It is an interdisciplinary field that has become popular among engineers (mainly geotechnical, environmental, water resources), scientist as well as geologists. Typical subjects covered in this area include contaminant transport, dredged soils, industrial wastes, geosynthetics, landfills (bioreactor and traditional), municipal solid waste, site remediation, tailing dams. Modeling, testing, monitoring, risk assessment and sustainability in geoenvironmental engineering are among the other emerging topics. “Advances in Environmental Geotechnics” presents the latest developments and novel findings in this interdisciplinary field.
