  • Description

    The Second International Conference on Environmental Management (ICEM2) focuses on the engineering management of the water and geo environments and aims to bring together scientists, engineers and other professionals to review as well as to report on the latest developments in the field.

    This book contains 160 peer reviewed papers covering the following interdisciplinary themes: Sustainable development/environmental management. Water, wastewater and stormwater management. Water quality/sediment transport. Total catchment management. Waste management and industrial waste products. Geotechnology and the environment. Slope stability and landslide management. Natural hazards and management. Mine environmental engineering.


    For industrialists, government representatives and engineers working in the field of engineering management for water and geo environments.
