Environmental Geoengineering
Geoenvironmental engineering can be defined as the application of earth science principles to the solution of land environmental problems. Geoenvironmental engineering deals with hazardous waste management and environmental remediation works. In this section related publications for geoenvironmental engineering are provided.
