By Giorgio Lollino, Daniele Giordan, Cristian Marunteanu, Basiles Christaras, Iwasaki Yoshinori, Claudio Margottini

This e-book is one out of eight IAEG XII Congress volumes, and bargains with the upkeep of cultural history. In 1972, the area background conference associated in one framework the recommendations of nature conservation and the upkeep of cultural websites. because then, engineering geology is enlarging its contributions to nationwide and foreign tasks in this subject and is extending its pursuits to key concerns like: safeguarding of monuments and websites from geotechnical views; complicated tracking; investigations on cultural landscapes; improvement of geo-databases for cultural background class; reviews at the interactions among humankind, typical panorama evolution and cultural background; research of weathering and deterioration of rock homes of monuments; threat research of websites tormented by ordinary dangers etc. With the contributions during this e-book, engineering geologists, conservation scientists and extra specialists from different typical, social and financial sciences, in addition to representatives of foreign corporations and nationwide and native administrative gurus alternate their rules and practices on tradition background maintenance via proposing either neighborhood case stories and multidisciplinary foreign initiatives. The Engineering Geology for Society and Territory volumes of the IAEG XII Congress held in Torino from September 15-19, 2014, examine the dynamic function of engineering geology in our altering international and construct at the 4 major subject matters of the congress: setting, techniques, concerns and techniques. The congress issues and topic parts of the eight IAEG XII Congress volumes are: weather swap and Engineering Geology. Landslide procedures. River Basins, Reservoir Sedimentation and Water assets. Marine and Coastal approaches. city Geology, Sustainable making plans and panorama Exploitation. utilized Geology for significant Engineering tasks. schooling, specialist Ethics and Public attractiveness of Engineering Geology. renovation of Cultural Heritage.
