The impact of rapid industrialization around the globe and unsafe waste management practices have become increasingly significant within the last two decades as the disclosed number of unengineered facilities and contaminated sites steadily grow and the anticipated remediation costs increase. A new service sector is emerging across the world in waste containment, soil remediation and environmental restoration. The need to accomplish the tasks given in environmental restoration and waste management places a new responsibility on the services of the civil engineer. It requires collaboration between geotechnical and environmental engineers and prompts the need to cooperate with the chemical, mechanical and electrical engineers, chemical environmental scientists, microbiologists, groundwater hydrologists and geologists resulting in the evolution of a geoenvironmental engineering subdiscipline. ""Geoenvironment 2000"" outlines the current trends, developments and needs in geoenvironmental engineering. In line with the different tasks undertaken by the civil engineer serving this sector within the last two decades, the themes of the conference were characterization/speciation, fate and transport, containment, and remediation. The papers in this proceedings discuss such topics as: techniques to sample and speciate contaminated groundwater and soil, transport of chemical species in soils, design/analysis and performance assessment of landfills, containment barriers, material-waste interactions in landfills, settlement, stability and seismic analysis of landfills, geosysthetics for geoenvironmental applications, hydraulic recovery/containment techniques, soil and groundwater bioremediation, and solidification and stabilization. Case histories and reviews of the state of the practice and art are also presented.
