Course Description

The evolution of contaminated site remediation techniques and the necessity to construct above-ground and underground structures on difficult terrains have generated the need to characterize sites and improve geomedia at such sites for both environmental and structural purposes. Whereas site selection requires the analysis of environmental conditions at large spatial scales, the use of a specific site requires detailed analysis of the characteristics of geo-materials that comprise the site at much smaller spatial scales. The scope of this course covers techniques which can be applied in the analysis of geomedia with respect to their contaminant and moisture transport properties, as well as their capacity to serve as load-bearing foundations and durable construction materials. Prerequisites: Undergraduate course in physical geography, or geology/geomorphology, or 14.330 soil mechanics, or engineering geology.
