  1. Heavy Metal Contamination of Water and Soil

    Analysis, Assessment, and Remediation Strategies

    Edited by Elham Asrari

    Although adverse health effects of heavy metals have been known for a long time, exposure to heavy metals continues and is even increasing in some areas. Remediating heavy metal contaminated soils and water is necessary to reduce the associated health and ecological risks, make the land resource...

  6. Design and Performance of Embankments on Very Soft Soils

    By Márcio de Souza S. Almeida, Maria Esther Soares Marques

    Embankment construction projects on very soft soil often give rise to serious problems. This volume on geotechnics and soft soil engineering therefore treats all phases of the design and construction process exhaustively, from the first investigation step to the monitoring of constructed work. The...
