An excellent source for civil engineers operating with offshore constructions, pipelines, dredging, and coastal erosion, Seafloor techniques and Geotechnology bridges the distance among the traditional soil mechanics curriculum of civil engineering and released fabric on marine geotechnology. using equipped info on sediments and foundations for marine functions from a number of resources, it presents useful reference info and ways for research and design.



This booklet offers an realizing of the procedures and loadings affecting the sediment/water interface and the sediment column at the continental shelf and slope in addition to the abyssal plains. It outlines the geological and geotechnical elements that are meant to be thought of in an research, and gives practising pros with the knowledge they should study strength environmental dangers and difficulties in marine foundations and slope balance. It covers geology, website research, drilling and sampling sediments, fabric homes, beginning layout, slope balance, and more.


Exploring marine geotechnology from a ancient point of view, this book:




  • Describes the improvement of marine geotechnology, the marine atmosphere, and the geology of the seabed

  • Discusses a few of the components of a website investigation

  • Explains how you can examine a domain by means of distant sensing over the macro scale, probing to examine a extra outlined zone, and drilling and sampling on the micro scale

  • Looks on the actual, acoustic, and geochemical houses of marine sediments on the micro scale

  • Focuses on slope balance and marine foundations


Seafloor techniques and Geotechnology offers the heritage for in situ research, drilling, soil sampling, and laboratory trying out applied sciences and serves as a whole instruction manual for engineers, geologists, in addition to marine and environmental scientists.
