This is a state-of-the art survey of embankment dams. Drawing on an international authorship, it provides up-to-date information from many countries on research, environmental considerations, risks, hazards, and safety. A major part of the book is devoted to a wide-ranging study of tailings dams, which draws together current international practice. Any engineer involved in the planning, design, construction, or operation of water-retaining embankments, and tailing dams will find this an invaluable reference book.
