CHALLENGES FOR ENGINEERING GEOLOGY AND GEOTECHNICS AFTER NATURAL DISASTERS, 20-23 JUNE 2016 SOFIA, BULGARIA
December 20, 2016
The terrifying natural disasters in the past few years have affected almost all continents and resulted in huge human losses and material damage. Environmental disasters happened in a lot of areas. Due to this the engineer geological conditions are being changed. As a result the construction of new geo-protective facilities, now require huge geotechnical and financial resources. Unfortunately, even the richest countries were not prepared to avoid the consequences of such accidents. The joint efforts of engineering geologists, geotechnical specialists and government organizations is crucial in these critical situations. We sincerely hope that this Symposium will contribute to the development of international cooperation and the sharing of solutions in the fight against natural disasters.
