The book is intended for use in undergraduate senior level or graduate level courses in hazardous waste management in geosciences and environmental sciences degree programs. The book should also serve as a useful geological reference source for students in environmental, geological and geotechnical engineering programs. Individuals working in the hazardous waste management industry will find it especially useful for gaining an understanding of the geologic and scientific basis of hazardous waste management. Professionals, serving as environmental scientists, engineers, and lawyers, will find it very valuable reference source in their day-to-day work. The book also provides instant access to important geologic sources and related environmental information. The author has skillfully integrated the important areas of hazardous waste management, geology, geotechnical engineering and environmental engineering. In this sense, Geology and Hazardous Waste Management has the distinction of being the first textbook that effectively brings out the emphasis on the interdisciplinary interplay among these areas of study.
