Geoengineering Marks Scientific Gains In UN Climate Report

Geoengineering science is advancing, but the question remains – should we use it? The UN climate report released presents a major leap forward in predicting how geoengineering to limit global warming might affect the planet, although scientists said the greatest hurdle remains deciding whether to use the controversial methods. Geoengineering involves large-scale interventions that

Geotextiles: Types And Uses

Geotextiles are used in civil construction projects for soil fills to improve soil characteristics. Geotextiles make poor soil more manageable, enabling construction in places that would otherwise be unsuitable. Geotextiles are ideal materials for many infrastructure works, such as roads, harbors, landfills, drainage structures, and other civil projects. Geotextile Applications Geotextiles can

Using GIS To Optimize Quality Control In Geotechnical Environmental Testing

In the world of environmental testing, numerous systems can complement traditional due diligence to produce the most accurate data for clients. One method that deserves more attention is Geographic Informational Systems (GIS) technology, which offers a relatively cost-effective way to optimize testing quality control by comparing geospatial analysis to sampling

Evaluation Of Long-Term Wastewater Treatment Efficiency In Multi-Soil-Layering Systems

Multi-soil-layering (MSL) wastewater treatment systems consist of soil units (soil mixture blocks, SMB) arranged in a brick-like pattern surrounded by permeable layers of zeolite or alternating particles of homogeneous sizes that allow for a high hydraulic loading rate. This study evaluated the performances of MSL systems that have been operating
