About this book

This book includes a careful selection of significant contributions from international experts that were presented at the 6th AIGA Conference “Applied Geology: Approaches to Future Resource Management” that was held in the Courmayeur, Aosta Valley, Italy, from 27 - 29 June 2018. The following 7 areas are the main themes covered in this volume:

·                 Applied Geology

·                 Hydrogeology

·                 Geological Exploration (underground)

·                 Slope Instability,

·                 Natural Hazards, Risk Assessment and Management,

·                 Geo-resources and Sustainable Development

·                 Application of Remote Sensing and Geographical Information Systems (GIS)

The authors, from academia, research and industry present the latest state of the practice, new technologies, innovative methods and sustainable management in the field of Applied and Environmental Geology.

About the authors

Marina De Maio was a Professor of Applied Geology and GIS in the Department of Environment, Land and Infrastructure Engineering at Politecnico di Torino, Turin, Italy. She was a Representative of Politecnico di Torino in the “European Technical and Scientific Committee (ETSC)” and European Water Association (EWA) and Senior Consultant for UNESCO. She has published several articles as Author and Coauthor in various reputed national and international journals. Her research activity was mainly on geological risk assessment, aquifer vulnerability, pollution risk, water resources management, climate change, mining and GIS. She has developed some part of “SINTACS” method to evaluate aquifer venerability during her research work and has completed several international and national research projects. She has also served as Reviewer for many international and national journals.


Ashwani Kumar Tiwari is working as an Assistant Professor in the School of Environmental Sciences at Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi, India. His teaching and research areas are water resources management and GIS, hydro-geochemistry, pollution of water resources by geogenic and anthropogenic activities, groundwater-seawater interaction and aquifer vulnerability. He was a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Department of Environment, Land and Infrastructure Engineering, Politecnico di Torino, Turin, Italy for around four years. He has completed his M.Sc., M.Phil., and Ph.D. in Environmental Science. He obtained his Ph.D. degree from Indian Institute of Technology (Indian School of Mines), Dhanbad, India, in 2016. He was awarded Erasmus Mundus and Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Scholarships. He has travelled to Canada, Chile, Malta, Germany, Estonia, Bulgaria and Finland for academic-/research-related pursuits.
