This journal presents the highest quality fundamental and applied research on all aspects of geosynthetics and their applications, and a variety of ground improvement techniques to reinforce and densify grounds, soils and rocks. The ground engineering aspects that involve scientific principles of geophysics, geochemistry and geomechanics for providing new solutions to practical problems are also considered. The aim is to provide access to rigorously refereed, original and innovative papers across the journal subject fields applied to core civil engineering areas: geotechnical, geoenvironmental, environmental, transportation and hydraulic engineering, and other ground-related areas, such as mining engineering, agriculture, aquaculture and waste management. The journal focuses on the needs of developing economies especially with regard to the environmental sustainability aspects of ground engineering. The research contributions that help achieve the sustainable development goals (SDGs) of the United Nations (UN) within the scope of this journal are also considered.
