Scientists, engineers and technologists will find this book as an invaluable reference on the latest advances in soil erosion engineering. This comprehensive book reflects on the latest information regarding the concepts and mechanics of soil erosion complemented by innovative techniques on reliability-based engineering design of soil structures and slopes against erosion failures via economic earthmoving and relandscaping of surface profiles for systematic land development. This book also highlights the state-of-the-art system of early warning and site risk assessment techniques against erosin failures for potential unstable areas for various site and climatic conditions. Recent advances on soil stabilization and sediment control techniques via best practices towards efficient implementation of soil erosion mitigation measures are also presented to minimize the adverse impacts of soil erosion in high-risk areas. The strength of his practical reference lies in the manner that the overall concepts of soil erosion engineering are synthesized and the use of practical case studies to showcase various scenarios to support its applicability towards stable land development. Chapters have been presented methodically for ease of comprehension with in-depth references included for supplementary reading. This handy reference book is appropriately useful for academia, a practical guide to the government and industry for systematic land/hillslope development as well as catalyst for futher global research.
