Commission 36: Engineering Geology for Waste Disposal
Monitoring methods play an important role in several aspects of Engineering Geology. Indeed, all the activities aimed at “investigating and finding solutions of the engineering and environmental problems which may arise as the result of the interaction between geology and the works and activities of man, as well as to the prediction and of the development of measures for prevention or remediation of geological hazards (IAEG statutes, 1992)”, significantly benefitted of the extraordinary technological progresses achieved in the last two decades. Advanced monitoring instruments and complex methodologies, going from in-situ to remote sensing approaches, allow us nowadays to gather invaluable information about numerous physical parameters at an unprecedented spatial resolution and temporal sampling.
The Commission 35 aims at analyzing the main aspects of monitoring methods and approaches used in Engineering Geology applications. The main goals are:
– To evaluate new monitoring instruments, techniques, and procedures;
– To identify standards and best practices criteria based on relevant experiences and bibliographic information;
– To evaluate the efficient integration of monitoring approaches based on the analysis of specific contexts;
– To promote guidelines and standards for a correct and efficient divulgation of the monitoring data and results;
– To share expertise, monitoring methodologies, and eventually monitoring instruments, to jointly analyze scientifically relevant case studies, which can be used as a reference.
