The Web Editor is calling for new contents for IAEG Webinar to improve the number of 30-40min presentations on specific subjects concerning engineering geology.

The Webinar can be recorded byself  (or during congress) and sent to the IAEG Web Editor

Webinar data from Japan National Group

Tomochika TokunagaAuthor
PhD in Applied Earth Sciences (The University of Tokyo), B. Sc., M. Sc., in Structural Geology (The University of Tokyo).
He is a professor of the Geosphere Environment Systems Laboratory, the Department of Environment Systems, Graduate School of Frontier Sciences, The University of Tokyo. He started his career as a research associate, then, an associate professor until being promoted as a full professor on March 2011. Between 1997 and 1998, he was a visiting researcher at the University of Wisconsin-Madison where he conducted both theoretical and experimental analyses on the behavior of anisotropic poroelastic materials.
His interests now include long-term stability of subsurface environments, dynamics of saltwater/freshwater behavior near the coast with respect to climate change both short and long-term, coupling processes of deformation and fluid flow in geological formations.
At the request of the Korean Society of Engineering Geology (KSEG) , and by recommendation from Japan Society of Engineering Geology(JSEG), this webinar was recorded for the KSEG confernce in the spring of 2021.

Mechanical behavior of rock materials with reference to weathering grades

Arindam Basu Author
Prof. Arindam Basu completed B.Sc. and M.Sc. studies from Jadavpur University and Indian Institute of Technology Bombay in 1997 and 1999, respectively. He pursued MPhil and PhD research at the University of Hong Kong (2000-2006) and subsequently, carried out postdoctoral research at Universidade de São Paulo (2006-2007). He joined the Department of Geology & Geophysics, Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur as an Assistant Professor in 2007. He has been working as a Professor in this department since 2018. His prominent research contribution lies in understanding mechanical behavior and failure modes of virtually isotropic and anisotropic rock materials including weathered rocks under different states of stress; in improving various index test methods; and in scrutinizing shear behavior of rock discontinuities that has got implications in shallow-depth rockslides. He received the Geological Society of India Sesquicentennial Commemorative Award in recognition of valuable contributions in the field of Engineering Geology in 2013. His work has been cited over 1450 times https://scholar.google.com/citations?user=9ZUWc7oAAAAJ&hl=en.

E-YEG webinar series
