Abstract

Summarized here are brief descriptions of selected research that has been undertaken at Northwestern University during the past two decades to address geoenvironmental engineering problems of importance to our country and the world. Also included are the views of current faculty on the more critical needs that currently limit our ability (a) to better understand the interactive mechanisms and reactions that comprise the essence of these problems and (b) to develop improved procedures for the analysis and design of practical and effective solutions to these problems.
