Underwater Embankments on Soft Soil: A Case History (repost)

Underwater Embankments on Soft Soil: A Case History (Balkema: Proceedings and Monographs in Engineering, Water and Earth Sciences) by William F. Van Impe and R. Daniel Verastegui Flores
English | ISBN: 0415426030 | 2007 | PDF | 154 pages | 3,35 mb

Ground improvement is an established technique in foundation engineering. In recent decades, modern methods of ground improvement have utilised explosives, impact energy, thermal treatment of the soil, vacuum consolidation, vibratory compaction technologies, stabilization and solidification of soft soils, as well as combined systems of ingenious grouting systems and deep mixing technique.

International Book Distributing Co. |2008 | ISBN: 8181892143, 1441649387 | 418 Pages | PDF | 20.2 MB

Studies of soils have specialized into several branches of soil sciences. Science is specific even in its wordings. Terminology of any science faculty assumes its prime significance because it's a mirror of its advancement. As the faculty grows knowledge wise new terminologies infiltrate with its specified meanings. It's a never-ending process. Therefore it is always a part of the faculty improvement to prepare a glossary of that particular branch time by time. Soil science is not an exception in this regard.
I think we have glossaries of fertilizers and biofertilizers from the Indian publishers. But there is an empty space in our library racks for single volume exclusively dedicated to glossary of soil sciences.

Soil Ecology

Patric Lavelle Alister V.SPAIN "Soil Ecology"
Springer 1 edition | English | ISBN-0792371232 | PDF | 684 pages | 27.4 MB

This book first synthesises in a complete, accessible way all the basic knowledge provided by the different disciplines of Soil Science. It then proposes integrative concepts and models that organise this knowledge, taking into account the multiple interactions that exist at a number of different scales among the living and inanimate components. This consideration of basic knowledge in a novel integrative approach is necessary to make significant progress in such critical issues as the improvement of the sustainability of soil and land use, the maintenance or restoration of soil quality, the understanding of the function and value of soil biodiversity, the role of soils in carbon sequestration, and the effects of global changes upon their function.
