"Advances in Environmental Geotechnics" provides the most recent advancements during this interdisciplinary box. the themes coated comprise simple and complicated theories for modeling of geoenvironmental phenomena, trying out and tracking for geoenvironmental engineering, municipal reliable wastes and landfill engineering, sludge and dredged soils, geotechnical reuse of commercial wastes, infected land and remediation expertise, functions of geosynthetics in geoenvironmental engineering, geoenvironmental hazard evaluation, administration and sustainability, ecological options and case histories. This complaints contains papers authored by way of middle participants of ISSMGE TC5 (International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering---Environmental Geotechnics) and geoenvironmental researchers from greater than 20 nations and areas. it's a helpful reference for geoenvironmental and geotechnical engineers in addition to civil engineers.

Yunmin Chen, Xiaowu Tang, and Liangtong Zhan are Professors on the division of Civil Engineering of Zhejiang collage, China.
