  • Microstructure of Fine-Grained Sediments

    Knowledge of basic clay microstructure is fundamental to an understanding of the physical, chemical, and mechanical properties of fine-grained sediments and rocks. This compilation of fifty-nine peer-reviewed papers examines clay microstructure in detail with comprehensive sections focusing on microstructure signatures, environmental processes, ...

  • Assessment of Environmental “Hot Spots” in Iraq

    It is estimated that Iraq has several thousand contaminated sites resulting from a combination of general industrial activities, military activities, post-conflict damage and looting. Many of the sites are derelict and open to public access.They contain substantial quantities of hazardous waste and present a threat to human health and to the ...

  • Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Mapping: Practices and Standards

    Maps, remote sensing imagery, and geographic information systems (GIS) have become increasingly important in providing essential data for solving problems related to ground water contamination, water resources management, construction, land use, waste management, minerals exploration, transportation routing, and environmental site ...

  • Geological Storage of Highly Radioactive Waste

    The book describes and assesses current concepts for long-term disposal of highly radioactive waste. Different types of rock are discussed and assessed with respect to practical difficulties in construction of a repository, and the efficiency in isolating radioactive waste. Safety matters are most important and are treated in the respective ...

  • Managing Soils in an Urban Environment

    Understanding the nature and appropriate management of soils for roads, houses, buildings, and other human-engineered artificial environments is of concern to soil scientists, land managers, environmental scientists, and biologists. Challenges include waste disposal, pest management, erosion and sediment control, construction, and minimization of ...

  • Leachate Recycle and the Augmentation of Biological Decomposition at Mumicipal Solid Waste Landfills (1991)

    Landfill disposal of MSW remains the major disposal option for many established solid waste programs. With state-of-the-art landfill construction, leachate management and landfill collection, landfills are becoming increasingly technical. Covered in this study: Waste Stabilization/Leacharte Recycle Process & Analysis, Zero-Discharge Leachate ...

  • Geotechnical Engineering of Ocean Waste Disposal

    15 peer-reviewed papers on geotechnical test methods and procedures used for site evaluation, design, construction, and monitoring of both contaminated areas and waste disposal facilities in the marine environment. Part A -- Shallow Ocen Disposal: Dredged Material, Sludges, and Bulking Wastes includes six papers on dredge material disposal. Part ...
