Geoenvironmental Engineering: Site Remediation, Waste Containment, and Emerging Waste Management Techonolgies

Geoenvironmental Engineering: Site Remediation, Waste Containment, and Emerging Waste Management TechonolgiesA comprehensive, single-source volume covering all aspects of geoenvironmental engineering

Geoenvironmental Engineering is a unique combination of essential geotechnical, geochemical, and groundwater flow information and the application of this knowledge to a host of common environmental problems and engineering solutions.

Complete with example problems, case histories, and thought-provoking questions, Geoenvironmental Engineering:

  • Presents environmental laws and regulations, chemical, geochemical and geotechnical background, and fundamentals of groundwater flow and contaminant transport
  • Discusses sources of contamination, contaminated site characterization, risk assessment, in situ waste containment, and soil and groundwater remediation technologies
  • Provides information on the design and evaluation of landfills and surface impoundments–including sources and characteristics of wastes, regulations and sitting requirements, liner systems, leachate collection and removal systems, final cover systems, gas management, and groundwater monitoring requirements
  • Outlines such emerging technologies as beneficial uses of closed landfills, recycling, bioreactors, and in situ capping of subaquatic waste sediments

Featuring comprehensive, up-to-date references at the end of each chapter, Geoenvironmental Engineering is a valuable resource for students of environmental and geotechnical engineering; hydrology, hydrogeology, and general civil engineering; and professionals in these fields, as well as environmental regulators and administrators at local, state, and federal levels.

One Response to Geoenvironmental Engineering: Site Remediation, Waste Containment, and Emerging Waste Management Techonolgies

    This book version has tons of errors! Not only in the material but all across the practice problems. Every class, the professor hands out a sheet to highlight the errors in the reading/assignment. Honestly, I don’t know why he chose to use this book with so many glaring errors. I’m sure this book probably has good material, but that’s all pretty much pointless if everything is incorrect…
