About this book

This volume addresses geotechnical subjects including sub-surface problems; remote and airborne sensing of pollution; leak detection from tanks, oil spills, marine pollution, heavy metals; and treatment options.

The authors are overwhelmingly well-known in their respective fields and speak with the voice of experience. These volumes are recommended as a library reference. (Environment International)
