Sustainability Initiatives by the EGSC Committee

Engineering geology is closely tied with sustainability of geotechnical and civil engineering systems, as represents the interface between site-specific engineering problems and the surrounding geology. Along these lines, the committee took the lead in the organization of GeoCongress 2014 "Geo-Characterizaton and Modeling for Sustainability". This page will soon contain a collection of the other initiatives undertaken by the EGSC committee in the area of sustainability.
