Research output: Book / ReportBookAcademicpeer-review


This book is a compilation of topics and issues the authors
think are required for a Sustainable Development and Management
of the Subsurface. It attempts to arrive at a logic
structure for dealing with the wide variety of aspects concerning
the use of underground space, both time wise and
geographically. The book aims to address engineers, teachers,
(junior) scientists, and all others involved in subsurface
construction providing an overview of not only
technical aspects but also legal, governmental and policy
making issues. It is a reference for the general public
interested in the Earth science aspects of future cities and
its citizens.
It also contributes to the ambitions of the International
Year of Planet Earth (2007–2009) aiming at increasing
awareness of the public and politicians to a safer, healthier
and wealthier society on this planet, and more in particular
to the Megacities theme of the International Year.
