3. “Contaminated Land Treatment Technologies” by J F Rees
4. “Solid-Fluid Mixtures of Frictional Materials in Geophysical and Geotechnical Context” by Lukas Schneider

“Solid-Fluid Mixtures of Frictional Materials in Geophysical and Geotechnical Context” Book Review: This book covers a broad channel between the physical and technical concepts of geology. It acts as a bridge between different topics of the mass and their physical properties. It covers the channel of preserving the constituents and fragmentation of particles. The book provides deep knowledge of solid and fluid mixtures and broadly discusses the principles for their properties. The thermodynamic analysis of solid-fluid mixtures is also described. The content of the book is designed using many examples with a better understanding of concept. This book will be best for the students pursuing their graduation in civil engineering.

5. “Introductory Geotechnical Engineering: An Environmental Perspective” by Hsai-yang Fang And John L Daniels

“Introductory Geotechnical Engineering: An Environmental Perspective” Book Review: This book covers all the merits and demerits on a broad scale containing all the concepts of geotechnical engineering in the context of an environment which were difficult to deal with. Book shapes a framework for deep analysis of soil behaviour with respect to the environmental conditions. This book deals with all problems and doubts. The book also includes the traditional theory and particle energy field theory. Many examples are included. The book will be useful for the civil engineering students, geotechnical and environmental engineers, and researchers.

6. “Coupled Phenomena in Environmental Geotechnics” by Mario Manassero

“Coupled Phenomena in Environmental Geotechnics” Book Review: The book deals with the overall characteristics of Coupled Phenomena covering both theoretical and practical approaches in this field. It offers an enhanced environment for geotechnical engineers to cover all aspects of Coupled Phenomena occurring in the environment. The real time applications, which are major issues like characterization of polluted sites, design of containment systems for subsoil pollutants control, radioactive waste disposal, geo energy exploitation and soil modification are presented in a very easy and interesting manner. This book also opens the gate for researchers to look into their future outcome and come with a better solution.

7. “Geotechnical and Environmental Aspects of Waste Disposal Sites” by R W Sarsby and A J Felton

“Geotechnical and Environmental Aspects of Waste Disposal Sites” Book Review: This book designs an idea to how we can deal with waste disposal. It covers all the points including the practice for waste disposal. This book contains the ideas for future research. The book offers applications dealing with disposal of waste in landfills, contamination of lands by fluid flows, and industrial waste dump for mining waste. The topics are thoroughly explained and the solutions for various problems are discussed. This book is best for students of geotechnics who want to grow their knowledge in the field of treating pollutants of environment and practice in waste disposal.

8. “Environmental Geotechnics and Problematic Soils and Rocks” by A S Balasubramaniam

“Environmental Geotechnics and Problematic Soils and Rocks” Book Review: The content of the book is inspired from the first Australian-New Zealand Geoenvironment conference. The book covers effective management of the geoenvironment. Many topics, ideas, concepts, and theories of environmental geotechnics are featured in this piece of writing.The book will be an asset for the researchers and practitioners related to the field of environmental geotechnics.
