Topical Collection: Earth & Environmental Sciences - Engineering geosciences, geotechnics and functional geomaterials: new trends on GIS mapping, geotechnologies and design with geohazards

Articles already published in this topical collection

This TC encourages submission of manuscripts focused on engineering geosciences, geotechnics and geomaterials, particularly on GIS mapping, geotechnologies and engineering design. We welcome original research papers that aim to enhance the knowledge of the scientific community but also provide valuable information on engineering geology and geotechnics regarding functional geomaterials, geotechnologies and geohazards. This approach includes all aspects of GIS mapping, characterization, assessment, monitoring and management within a sustainable and eco-responsible approach aiming a better multidisciplinary knowledge and engineering design with geohazards. All aspects of geosciences, e.g. mining hazards and geohazards, rock engineering and geotechnologies including GIS mapping, geoengineering and remote sensing, virtual reality and gaming for earth sciences are particularly welcome.
