Description:

Geoenvironmental Engineering covers the application of basic geological and hydrological science, including soil and rock mechanics and groundwater hydrology, to any number of different environmental problems. * Includes end-of-chapter summaries, design examples and worked-out numerical problems, and problem questions. * Offers thorough coverage of the role of geotechnical engineering in a wide variety of environmental issues. * Addresses such issues as remediation of in-situ hazardous waste, the monitoring and control of groundwater pollution, and the creation and management of landfills and other above-ground and in-situ waste containment systems.
