Provides an integrated and comprehensive approach that covers qualitative and quantitative analyses of techniques from a variety of disciplines such as engineering, and the physical/ chemical and biological sciences! Geoenvironmental Engineering applies science and engineering principles to the analysis, design, and implementation of technical schemes to characterize, treat, modify, and reuse/store waste and contaminated media-including site remediation. Facilitating the assessment and solving of current and future geoenvironmental problems through the synthesis of essential principles from diverse fields of study, Geoenvironmental Engineering discusses soil formation, composition, structure, and its behavior and interaction with water, as well as dissolved and immiscible contaminants. presents clean-up criteria and pathways for contaminant exposure in site remediation, and outlines the various remediation strategies describes types of waste containment and containment site selection, containment system configurations, the essentials of containment system design, and the treatment of barrier composition and performance issues Geoenvironmental Engineering shows how scientists and engineers can bring their vital skills to analyze and solve the environmental problems of the ground surface and subsurface. It is a timely and important reference for civil, geoenvironmental, geotechnical, environmental, chemical, foundation, petroleum, water resource, hydraulic, mining, and minerals engineers; geologists, geochemists, geophysicists, and biogeochemists; geostatisticians; soil scientists and agronomists; environmental policymakers, specification writers, and water resource managers; marine, molecular, plant, fisheries, field, and soil biologists and microbiologists; and a thorough text for upper-level undergradaute and graduate students in these disciplines.

Editorial Reviews

Applies science and engineering principles to the analysis, design, and implementation of technical schemes to characterize, treat, reuse, and store waste and contaminated media. Part I deals with principles and processes related to soil, water, and chemical interactions. Parts II and III are devoted to applications in site and risk assessment, clean-up techniques, and waste containment, and discuss physico- chemical and biological principles on which applications are based. Reddi teaches in the department of civil engineering at Kansas State University-Manhattan. Inyang is professor and director of the Center for Environmental Engineering, Science and Technology, at the University of Massachusetts-Lowell. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
