A 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.
