About these proceedings


This book is one out of 8 IAEG XII Congress volumes, and deals with the theme of urban geology. Along with a rapidly growing world population, the wave of urban growth continues, causing cities to swell and new metropolitan centers to emerge. These global trends also open new ventures for underground city development. Engineering geology plays a major role in facing the increasing issues of the urban environment, such as: finding aggregates for construction works; providing adequate water supply and waste management; solving building problems associated to geological and geomorphological conditions; evaluating host rock conditions for underground constructions; preventing or mitigating geological and seismic hazards. Furthermore, this book illustrates recent advancements in sustainable land use planning, which includes conservation, protection, reclamation and landscape impact of open pit mining and alternative power generation. The Engineering Geology for Society and Territory volumes of the IAEG XII Congress held in Torino from September 15-19, 2014, analyze the dynamic role of engineering geology in our changing world and build on the four main themes of the congress: Environment, processes, issues, and approaches. The congress topics and subject areas of the 8 IAEG XII Congress volumes are:
  1. Climate Change and Engineering Geology
  2. Landslide Processes
  3. River Basins, Reservoir Sedimentation and Water Resources
  4. Marine and Coastal Processes
  5. Urban Geology, Sustainable Planning and Landscape Exploitation
  6. Applied Geology for Major Engineering Projects
  7. Education, Professional Ethics and Public Recognition of Engineering Geology
  8. Preservation of Cultural Heritage
