CIVE 6345 Geo-Environmental Engineering

This course is the engineering applications of geologic and geosynthetic materials for problems related to the protection of human health and the environment. It is an interdisciplinary area intersecting Environmental Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, and Groundwater Engineering. The primary problems addressed pertain to the protection of uncontaminated regions of the subsurface, remediation or clean up of regions of the subsurface that have been contaminated by e.g., leaking waste containment facilities, industrial spills, leaking underground storage tanks, infiltration of pesticides, etc. Topics covered include contaminant fate and transport, remedial action/design, waste management, site assessment and monitoring, waste treatment and disposal, geohydroology, groundwater water flow and vulnerability.
